What happens when you combine chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter and chocolate brownies? YUM!!
I saw something similar to this on Pinterest. My curiosity was piqued because of my love affair with all things peanut butter.
Today, I decided to make an attempt at these little pieces of scrumptiousness.
First step: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
OK, I cheated. I had some Pillsbury ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookes (in the tube) in my fridge. Take an amount equal to or just less than the amount you would use to make a cookie and smoosh that into the bottom of your cupcake paper.
Second step: Take about 1-1/2 cups of peanut butter and about 1/4 cup of olive oil (that makes it healthy right?) and mix into a bowl. This will thin the peanut butter and make a “meltaway” consistency. Making you hungry yet?
Put the peanut butter meltaway on top of the chocolate chip batter.
Third step: OK…I cheated again. I used a box mix of brownies, the family sized box. Mix that up according to the directions on the box and place on top of the other mixtures in the cupcake paper.
Yippee!! It’s all put together and you are closer to the finished product!!
I put my oven rack on the highest setting because the cookie has a shorter baking time than the brownie. I didn’t want to have raw brownie with burned cookie. SO—put the trays in the oven and bake for 20 minutes give or take.
When the brownie is not still wet on the top, they are done. Allow them to cool completely before coming out of the cupcake pans so they do not fall apart.
This is the finished product.
