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!

Hello to everyone! Man did I have a busy weekend! Check out the cakes I made
However, now I am home.. and after sleeping for almost 12 hours, I wake up and want cookies, lol. So I look through my books and find nothing in particular that perks my interest. I want chocolate and caramel goodness. The result I have come up with: Chocolate Rolo Cookies. So.Good. And easy! 

Chocolate Rolo Cookies

Picture
Creamed mixture, before adding the dry ingredients
INGREDIENTS
6 Tbl. butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa, unsweetened
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

Picture
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350. Use a cooking spray to coat a mini muffin pan. 
2. Using mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until  smooth. 
3. Add egg and mix.
4. In separate bowl blend the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
5. Add to dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix just until blended. Do not overbeat.
6. Add water and vanilla and blend.
7. Use a 1oz scoop (or just a spoon) to drop batter into each mini muffin cup.
8. Unwrap rolo candies and push one into the middle of each cookie. Don't push it all the way to the bottom of the batter.
9. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the bake time. 
10. Let them cool in the pan for a couple minutes before popping them out. 

     Now, after trying this the 'cookie' seems more like a brownie.. which is still ok with me! However now I need a big glass of milk.. lol. Give it a try guys! This is an excellent, easy recipe to try with the kids!
