Reese’s Double Brookies

Review by Lyndee:

A Reese's Oreo stuffed between a brownie and a peanut butter chip cookie, topped with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  Yes, it’s rich and decadent and fattening but it may be the best brownie/cookie combo I’ve ever made. I found this on the Chef In Training blog and if I could hug her for sharing it, I would.  

1 Pk Reese’s Oreo Cream Cookies
1 Box brownie mix
1 Large egg
⅓ C Vegetable oil
¼ C Milk

For the cookie
½ C (1 stick) Unsalted butter
½ C Light brown sugar
½ C Sugar
1 Large egg
2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
1¾ C All-purpose flour
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Baking soda
¾ C Peanut Butter Chips
12 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a medium sized bowl, combine brownie mix, egg, vegetable oil and milk. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Line a 9x13” pan with parchment paper or a baking mat. Pour brownie mixture over the baking mat and spread evenly. Set Oreo cookies in a line over top of the brownie mix.

For the cookie
Soften butter in the microwave 10-15 seconds. Combine butter with both light brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until smooth and mixture becomes fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until egg is thoroughly incorporated. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add flour mixture to dough batter while mixing at a low speed. Once all the flour has been added, increase speed to medium until dough forms.

Chop Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into small pieces. Add all but ¼ C into the cookie dough. Add peanut butter chips and fold into cookie dough. Take the cookie dough and drop chunks onto the top of the brownie mixture, gently pressing them down into brownie batter. Add remaining ¼ C Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and press gently onto the top of the cookie dough.

Bake for 23-25 minutes at 350°F. Test the middle with a toothpick to make sure the batter is cooked.  If not, put back in the oven for a few more minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting.

To make this a super simple dessert I used a pre-made peanut butter cookie dough and mini size Reese’s peanut butter cups so I didn’t have to chop anything up.  These were amazing to say the least.  So rich and who doesn’t love a chocolate and peanut butter combination?
