Brownie Cookie Candy Goodness

I’ve been meaning to try this pin for quite some time. It reminds me alot of this pin I tried a while ago.

Unfortunately, I do not know the original source site but the picture linked back to couponersunited. There were a few good tips in the comments section – like using Oreos as a substitute for the Reese’s and to use cupcake liners.

I gathered up my ingredients.

I didn’t read the directions well and ended up buying the wrong cookie dough. The directions called for the break apart kind. However, I made it work. I’m sure you could also use a home made recipe as well.

Start by layering the cookie dough in the bottom of the cupcake liners and push down.

I just eyeballed how much cookie dough to put in.

Next up is layer #2.

I decided to try both Reese’s & Oreos.

Then finally, cover the Oreos or Reese’s with brownie batter.

The Reese’s were easier to cover then the Oreo’s.

I baked them at 350 for 17 minutes.

Once I took the brownie treats out of the pan, I noticed the strangest thing. A layer of orange was on the bottom of the cupcake pan. Turns out that the cute, new cupcake liners I used...

didn’t hold up so well and the color ran.

Oh well! Anyway here’s the end result...

The Verdict: This recipe was very easy to make and the Oreo ones were delicious! I would definitely make those again. However, I was not a big fan of the Reese’s ones. The Reese’s completely melted, which made it difficult to eat. All I could taste was the peanut butter.

Things to Note/Consider: The Reese’s ones would probably taste better if I had the pan that they used in the original picture. The ratio of cookie to Reese’s to brownie was off in my cupcake pan. There just wasn’t enough room for all the cookie dough needed to off set the peanut butter.
