Y’all know I like to cook…and I’d like to think that most of the time I do a pretty good job of things when it comes to the kitchen. I think I have posted before about triple layer brownies (initially named “slutty” brownies – but no one really needs to go around saying that, right?) and this weekend I decided to shake things up a bit when making them!
One of my sweet friends came over on Saturday afternoon to catch up; she’s pregnant and had told me more than once that her sweet babe gives her “the hunger of a thousand men” and so I decided that instead of doing a pan of brownies, I’d just do muffin-style individual brownies and I’m so glad I did!
Now – I normally make triple layer brownies with Oreo’s as the surprise in the middle but while grabbing groceries for the weekend on Friday, I took a detour down the Easter candy aisle (yes – it’s already out in full force!) and grabbed a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs! Be still my heart. So – to make your very own pan of delicious “muffins”, you’ll need:
-1 roll chocolate chip cookie dough
-1 package (you’ll use 12) Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
-1 package store bought brownie mix (I use Ghiradelli – so yummy!)
That’s it! Literally three ingredients and you’ll be on your way to heaven. And possibly diabetes…but maybe don’t settle on that aspect of the recipe, alright?
It really is so very easy to make these delicious treats! Spray your muffin tin well – you don’t want the cookie base to stick! Put a spoonful of cookie dough into the center of each tin and press with your fingers to fill the bottom and firm out your “crust”. Then place the treasure in the center – a Reese’s Peanut Butter egg – and cover with brownie batter.
Bake the muffins according to the directions on your brownie mix and be sure to let the finished product cool for a bit – if you try to remove them from the muffin tin when they are still warm, the center of the muffin is likely to give way! It will still taste delicious, but it won’t look so great!
Enjoy the finished product with a tall glass of milk and remind yourself that it can’t be too bad for you – it is; after all, only a muffin!
