Karen’s Outrageous Brownies


Cookie Reese Brownie_SAC (8)

Admission: I love brownies. And cookies. And peanut butter. And then I tasted this at my mom’s house and I lost my mind over how delicious they were! I blame my mom, Karen, for this recipe. That picture below is my mom when she came to Columbus and we made cake pops….so fun!! And I couldn’t resist – here’s a finished picture of the cake pop display she did (I did help a little though!).

Ok – let’s start with the facts. Here’s what you need: brownie mix, Reese’s peanut butter cups, and pre-made cookie dough. Oh, and 2 eggs, water, and canola oil. Supplies: 2 cupcake pans, cupcake liners, and cooking spray.

And then you assemble….break the cookie dough apart and press each cookie into the bottom of the cupcake pan and liner. Then lay a Reese’s cup on top. And then ladle on some of that delicious brownie batter. And then bake – for about 18 minutes at 350 degrees. Half way through I turned and switched locations of the 2 muffin pans in the oven to allow for even cooking.

  1. OH YES!!! I must make these, holy wowee they look so so so good 🙂

  2. Yum that looks like the most delicious treat ever. How much water and canola oil? I can’t see the measurements

    • Hi Jeri – I made the brownies per the instructions on the box — this particular kind called for 1/4 Cup Water 3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil — hope that helps. Good luck and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as did!!
