I’ve never met a chocolate recipe I didn’t like. Chocolate can do no wrong, am I right? It’s like a girlfriend that’s there for us when we need it most. To celebrate all things chocolate I whipped up mini double chocolate cookie cakes with peanut butter frosting (and additional chocolate chips for garnish, of course). I had to give a tiny bit of love to peanut butter because it’s chocolate’s bff. These mini cookie cakes are perfect for gatherings, birthday parties, and for no reason other than to enjoy them yourself. Grab the simple recipe and must have baking items below.
When my husband came home from work and spotted these on the kitchen counter he said, wow. Yes, they look pretty and taste even better! While I am interested in chocolate recipes of all varieties including the ones that take an hour to create, I prefer a quick recipe when I’m having a chocolate craving. This has got to be one of the fastest and easiest recipes I’ve created to date. Thanks to the Flap Jack mix I had very little work to do on my end.
So what makes this recipe double chocolate? The Flap Jacked mix is double chocolate with mini chocolate morsels throughout AND I added chocolate to the peanut butter frosting too. Chocolate on chocolate on peanut butter on chocolate. I’m totally making dreams come true here. These cookies are protein packed which offers you a sweet treat that truly fills you up appropriately.
