Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Brownie

Say that fast five times!  It's a mouthful and so are these. These are super rich so be sure to share with your friends and family!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Brownie

1 package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough  (you can use the already sliced dough or tube)
1 box of brownie mix, prepared according to directions on box
regular size peanut butter cups

Press 1.5 squares of chocolate chip cookie dough (or approximately 1-1/2" ball of dough flattened) into the bottom of each well in the muffin pan.

Place an unwrapped, peanut butter cup in each well, upside down.

Finish off by filling each well until it is 3/4 of the way full with the brownie mix. You want to make sure you do not over fill here.  Use a rubber spatula or knife to make sure the peanut butter cup is completely covered with brownie batter.

There will be more brownie mix and cookies than the 12 muffin spots.  Make as many as the ingredients let you. 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes or until brownie batter is set.  Insert a toothpick around into the brownie (but not through the peanut butter cup or it will skew your results.) 

It is hard to resist these straight out of the oven.  Trust me, I know.  They will NOT come out in one piece if you try to remove them.  They will separate. Let them cool completely before turning them out.

Not a peanut butter cup fan? I am sure there are a few of you.  Try Oreos, bite size candy bars, mini marshmallows, the ideas are endless.  Anything stuffed in between a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie will be fantastic!

You can see each of the three layers in stages here:

  3. Do you spray pan with Pam first?

    1. I believe I did. It's been a while. Check the instructions on the brownie box. It would say for sure. Thanks for stopping by!
