Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Cups

Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Cups

So it’s Peanut Butter Cookie Day (my mom’s FAVORITE cookie of all time!)  And in my world, any holiday involving food is a holiday worth celebrating! Though I definitely appreciate peanut butter, I’m personally more of a chocolate chip kinda guy.  So I went on a quest for ways to remix the plain ol’ peanut butter cookie. In the process of surfing the interwebs, I came across a few recipes and was swiftly reminded of just how much of an inexperienced baker I am!  I’m not gonna lie to ya, I’m no Benny Crocker (that’s Betty’s male cousin baker extraordinaire, if ya didn’t know).  Quite frankly, ingredients like flour, baking powder, and cornstarch immediately intimidate me.  So I was more than happy to happen across The Thread Affect’s Chocolate Heaven Cuffins recipe.  Apparently, a cuffin is a heavenly hybrid of a cookie and a muffin.  Hm. Who knew?  It’s a simple little recipe that requires only SIX ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your kitchen (NOW you’re speaking my language).  These lovelies were so easy to make, and turned out to be quite delicious, if I have to say so myself.  This one’s definitely a winner for the sweet tooth(s) in your family.  Without further ado, I present to you: Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Cups!

Ingredients
  1. prepackaged chocolate chip cookie dough (I used the miniature size)
  2. 1 box brownie mix
  3. Reese's miniature peanut butter cups (I needed 12 for 12 muffin slots)
  4. vegetable oil
  5. egg
  6. water
Instructions
  1. Flatten two squares of miniature cookie dough into a paper muffin cup.
  2. Place an upside-down Reese's peanut butter cup on top of the cookie dough.
  3. Prepare brownie mix according to instructions on box, then pour over each cookie/Reese's combo.
  4. Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out fairly dry.
  5. Allow to cool, then serve!
Notes
  1. To ensure that you have the proper ingredients for your brownie batter, make sure that you read the ingredients needed for your particular brownie mix. Some require milk; mine only required water, egg, and vegetable oil. :-)
