Peanut Butter Granola Bar Cookies

Super (and by super, I mean SUPER) easy to make! Great alternative to plain ol' peanut butter cookies!

What you need:
1 box of white cake mix
1 stick of butter
2 eggs
4-6 sweet and salty peanut butter granola bars
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1 1/2 tsp shortening

Preheat you oven to 350.
In a mixer, mix together cake mix, butter, and eggs until smooth.
Using a tsp or a cookie scoop, drop some 2 inches apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes.
Move to a cookie rack and cool completely for 20 minutes.

Since I do not have a microwave, I used a small pot to melt my peanut butter chips on low. I added a tiny tsp of creamy peanut butter so it wouldn't burn and added the shortening. 

Grab your self a cup and put a zip lock baggy inside of it and wrap the edges around the lip of cup.
Like so.

Whether using microwave or stove, Pour in zip lock baggy. 
Cut a tiny hole on the corner and drizzle some melted peanut butter on the cookies.

Let dry. I placed them in the fridge for just 5 minutes.

Next time, I think I'm going to do some peanut butter drizzle and some chocolate drizzle to go with it!

I'll bet these are delicious. I love cookies that begin with a cake mix and I love the Sweet & Salty nut bars. Thanks for sharing on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
