Mood disorders - particular those of a unipolar nature - often produce cravings for comfort foods. For me, this means chocolate, sugar, and carbs in general.
Today, while perusing my usual food blogs, I saw on Girlichef's blog a recipe for chocolate & peanut butter chip cookies in which a cake mix had the starring role. I've seen recipes for cookies using cake mixes quite a bit in the food blog world, but I've never gotten around to making any, until now.
The recipe is here. As Girlichef says, the brown sugar didn't seem necessary to her, so I didn't add it and I didn't feel these cookies lacked a thing because of that omission.
I loved these! They were simple and quick, which was perfect for me in my current frame of mind. There was near-instant satisfaction. The cookies were also delicious, cakey, and fudgey, and the peanut butter chips were fantastic. It doesn't get much better than chocolate & peanut butter combined.
