I know Valentine’s Day can be hectic and crazy busy, especially since it’s on a weekday this year. So…I thought I’d help you by giving you the easiest recipe I know for Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies (or if your Valentine prefers peanut butter), Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.
This is not gourmet but they taste so darn good no one will care.

Preheat oven to 350°
1 package Devil’s Food cake mix ~ I use Duncan Hines if available but I’ve used Betty Crocker’s and they are still yummy.
½ cup cooking oil ~ I use canola oil from Trader Joe’s.
2 Tablespoons water ~ I use warm tap water
2 large eggs
1 6-oz. package Chocolate Chips ~ I use Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips because my guys are peanut butter fans.
½ cup nuts (optional)
Blend cake mix, oil water and eggs. Stir in chocolate (peanut butter) chips and nuts (if you’re using nuts). Drop by teaspoon on ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake at 350° for 10 – 12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then remove to wire rack. Note: I add more chips than recipe calls for and I also decrease the oil by just a tiny bit (and by tiny bit I’d say by 1 tablespoon less).
Here’s the map to a woman’s heart…we know the map to a man’s heart is via his stomach, right?
Happy St. Valentine’s Day
AH YUM! Love that vintage print and that table setting – I’m so behind my table is going to look at little tacky – no pics of this one for the blog LOL! Happy Valentines Day.
They aren’t low cal, but if you only eat one or two you’ll be good to go.
Truth be told, Hubby and I are hanging at home with a romantic dinner, fire in the fireplace and TV…I’m just being honest. 🙂

Very nice setup. Cookies look delicious!
The cookies are truly delicious and easy.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Karen, these cookies remind me of the ones I used to make from a brownie box mix, but yours are even easier. can’t wait to try them!
I love the table setting. I think I need to add a little to mine -it’s lacking detail.
I add a little extra cake mix to the recipe due to the fact that they used to turn out so flat so I tried adding extra and they turn out so much prettier.
Brownie mix-cookies sound delicious as well.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Thanks for the recipe, Karen. They seem quite easy to make (right up my alley!) and they look delicious! I love the vintage look of the map, thanks for sharing and a Happy Valintine’s Day to you too!
It really is easy and a man pleaser in our house.
Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
