I'm sure you've seen this concocation all over the internet and Pinterest. And it's worth sharing here, too. I used a variation of this recipe I pinned from Baby Gizmo and decided on my own little twist! Maybe this exists out there, but this was something new that I created in my kitchen.
1 Roll of Prepared Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
1 Bag Full Size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
1 Box of Brownie Mix (prepared)
Spray muffin tins lightly with cooking spray. Add a small scoop (1 TBLS) (Norpro Stainless Steel Scoop, 1 Tablespoon, 35mm) of cookie dough and press into the bottom of each muffin tin hole. Place one Reese's PB Cup (upside down) ontop of the cookie dough. Spoon prepare brownie mix over the PB Cup, making sure to cover it completly but not filling the hole to the top.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree over for 13-15 minutes, checking to make sure they are evenly cooked. Remove and allow to cool about 3 minutes. Carefully, use a plastic knife and gently go around each muffin tin hole, releasing the cup. Allow to cool another 5-10 minutes before taking out of pan.
- I do not recommend skipping the plastic knife step. It makes the removal process easily. I use this trick when I make the brownie covered Oreo's, too.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
- Don't try in a mini-muffin tin. They aren't pretty. They are still good, but they are very difficult to remove from the pan and once they are out--they look horrible. I'd still eat them because I know how yummy they are, but if you take them to a gathering, I'm sure they won't be chosen unless you pass them out yourself and swear they are tasty!!
So, do you think you could handle that yummy dessert? Let me know what you "favor" during that wonderful time of the month!!
