Hey everyone! I'm super excited to share this new recipe with you! It's a double layer dessert bar, the bottom layer is a simple peanut butter cookie, and the top is a fudgy brownie. And the best part, PEANUT BUTTER CUPS are all of this dessert! Soooo good. I find that the newer Mini Reese's cups work the best in this recipe. :)

Preheat oven to 325. Spray a 9'' pan with baking spray and set aside.

Bottom layer: PB cookie
Ingredients: 1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Picture
Directions: 
In a mixing bowl, mix the sugar and egg together. Then add the peanut butter. Mix until it forms a dough. Press dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle half of the package of the Mini Reese's Cups over the cookie dough. Set aside.

Top layer: Brownie
Ingredients: 
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla

Picture
In a mixing bowl, use a whisk to mix the flour, sugar, and cocoa. Add butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well.

Using a spatula, spread the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Reese's cups. Sprinkle the remaining Mini Reese's Cups over the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating halfway through the bake time. Make sure its done in the middle. Let cool about 10 minutes before cutting into em. Could possibly be super delicious with ice cream. Yes. That sounds pretty awesome. :) Enjoy everyone!

Two of my favorite things combined. Cheesecake. Brownies. Its a win-win. Right? Right! (secret: I used to hate cheesecake. weird right?)
Before I get to the recipe though, let me fill you in on whats been going on with me. I want to take a moment to thank everyone for all the prayers and thoughts concerning my Grandpa. He is doing better and they have moved him to a nursing home. Although he doesn't have much time, we're very lucky that he is still with us... even if just for a little while longer. So please keep him in your thoughts! 
     This past weekend I was so super busy! Made a few cakes, held a baby shower for a friend, trying to help another friend with her wedding planning (of course I'm doing the cake lol) that is coming up on August 4th, and also working during all this and trying to help my family concerning my Grandpa. I've just been busy! I don't mind it all, just makes me tired. lol 
     On another note, who's a fan of Linkin Park? I AM! I am a HUGE fan and have been since I was younger. Recently I found out that they are going to be in Noblesville (northern Indiana) on August 25th. Now considering that my birthday is August 15th... don't you think that would be the PERFECT birthday present? I'm just throwing that out there.. lol

Brownies
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla

In a mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, and eggs. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Pour into baking pan.

Cheesecake
1- 8oz pkg cream cheese (room temp) 
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Using a spoon, put blobs of cheesecake batter on top of brownie batter. Using a knife, swirl the cheesecake batter it. Don't mix! Just swirl. :) You will have extra cheesecake batter. SAVE THIS! I guarantee you'll wanna use it for the next batch of brownies.. and it'll save you a step. :)

Bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven, rotate halfway through baking. When you take them out of the oven, let them cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Cut into squares, serve with a HUGE glass of milk. :) (chocolate milk for me lol)
