A devilish delight.

One of my favorite blogs is Our Best Bites. It's a foodie blog, started by two young moms who love to cook and try new recipes. Their recipes are fairly easy and use pretty basic ingredients -- totally up my alley. Plus, they're notoriously delicious! Just look at how many followers they have if you don't believe me.

The other day, I was perusing the site when I noticed two recipes that, if combined, could possibly make the most sinful, devilish cookies ever known to mankind. The mad scientist in me cackled; a plan was hatched. I carried it out ... the result:

These scrumptious bad boys, which I like to call "Devilish PB Cookie Sandwiches".

For the cookies (Cake Mix Cookies):

1 box Devil's Food cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil
1-2 T water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil. Add water if needed. A doughy mixture should form. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and arrange on cookie sheet, 1 - 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake for 6-7 minutes. Careful not to overdo it; you want these to be soft and chewy! Yields 24-30 cookies.

Peanut butter filling:

1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1/4 c real butter, softened
2 C powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
2-3 T milk

Using an electric mixer, whip the peanut butter and butter together until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Then add milk, one T at a time. You may not need it all. You want the filling to be on the thick side; it should just have enough milk in it to make it easily spreadable. If you add too much milk (like a normal frosting consistency) it might squish out of the cookies when you take a bite. Frost flat side of cookie and sandwich with another.

Sink your teeth in and relish every sumptuous moment.

Wash it all down with a glass of milk.

And there you have it. The most eeeevil recipe on the planet. Enjoy!
