Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup + Choc-Chip Cookie + Brownie Amazingness!
Monday May 27 2013
The amazingness that is…. a Reese’s peanut butter cup sandwiched between a chocolate chip cookie & a brownie. *SIGH!*
OK, so the first time my friend Nathalie told me about these awesome treats, I made everything from scratch. Seriously. But that’s so not necessary. If you buy the ‘box mixes’ you can seriously make a dozen of these in less than 30 minutes, and for less than 5 GBP.
- 1 cupcake pan
- 12 cupcake cases
- choc-chip cookie dough (or 1 bag of chocolate chip cookie mix)
- brownie mix (or 1 box brownie mix)
- 12 Reese’s peanut butter cups
- some extra dark & white chocolate chips, or marshmallows, or whatever else you prefer to add to your brownies
Pre-heat oven to 185 degrees Celsius.
Start with a chocolate chip cookie dough with nice big chunks of dark & white chips. I used Waitrose’s brand.
Mix up a batch of fudge-y brownies & add a few more chunks of chocolate: dark & white or semi-sweet if you prefer.
Press the chocolate chip mixture into the bottom of the cupcake case, about 1 tablespoon full. Then place the Reese’s PB cup on top.
…then add about 1 tablespoon of brownie mix on top of the Reese’s PB cup.
Bake on a lower oven shelf for about 20-25 minutes until the brownie mix rises & cooks through (though I do prefer it a little under-baked).
Allow to cool for a few minutes…
…and then ENJOY! the crunch of the cookie, the smoothness of the Reese’s PB cup, & the chewiness of the deep, rich brownie. YUMM-AZEBALLS!!
