Can you imagine your favorite cookies and your favorite chocolate candy tucked inside decadent brownies?
On our girls’ trip, one friend brought brownies with Oreo™ cookies inside. I can’t remember the other cookie or candy that was added, but they were good!
Those brownies got me thinking about HH’s favorites. He loves Keebler™ E. L. Fudge cookies and Reese’s™ Peanut Butter Cups, not necessarily together, but why not?
Make one batch of brownies using the box instructions and spread into a prepared pan. Top with broken cookies and quartered candies.
Prepare second box of brownie mix and pour evenly over the cookie/candy layer. Top with Heath™ Toffee bits (because is wasn’t quite fattening enough without that – ha!).
Bake 35 minutes in a 350º oven. Be careful not to over-bake, or they’ll be dry. Cool slightly, slice, and enjoy. 🙂
Wouldn’t ice cream be delicious on these warm, gooey brownies? Doesn’t the lighter colored cookie help to see those surprises inside?
I’m sure you could use your choice of cookies and chocolates. I think next time, I’ll use Snickers™ for the candy – my favorite. Yum!
- 2 boxes of brownie mix, your choice of brand and type
- 16 miniature Reese's peanut butter cups, papers off and quartered
- 8 Keebler E. L. Fudge cookies, broken into ½-inch pieces
- ½ cup Heath chips
- Prepare first box of brownies using box directions. Pour into 9" x 13" x 2" baking pan prepared with vegetable spray.
- Spread with broken cookies and candies.
- Prepare second box of brownies and pour evenly over cookie/candy layer.
- Sprinkle with toffee bits.
- Bake in 350-degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Batter should be set, but be careful not to over-bake. For glass pan, decrease oven temp to 325 degrees.
This makes a huge batch of really thick brownies, so cut them smaller than usual. Oh, and it’s best to make them when you have plenty of people to share them with!
What’s your favorite cookie and candy? Wouldn’t you love to try them inside your favorite brownie?
