I’m just gonna say what you’re all thinking: these brownies are ridiculous. But in a very, very good way.
They’re what happens when Crack Brownies marry Slutty Brownies: they’re fudgy, chocolatey Peanut Butter Cup Brownies that have an Oreo Crust.
Like I said, ridiculous. But you want them anyway.
Sometimes I surprise myself. Sometimes I have to just gape in awe at my brilliance as a dessert thinker-upper.
Yes, that’s my new title. Like it?
Dessert Thinker-Upper (noun): a person who thinks deeply and seriously about dessert and who comes up with ridiculous dessert recipes that make you drool.
So in my role as Dessert Thinker-Upper, I’m always thinking about my next new dessert. I think about it at the gym, in the shower, and while I’m driving. I think about desserts when I’m trying to play Life with my daughter and when my husband talks to me about NFL Total Access. Long car trips? The perfect time for thinking up crazy ridiculous desserts.
If you read my post yesterday, you’ll know all about my trip to Palm Springs. On the way home I was thinking on a dessert I could make to send to our friends who lent us their condo, to say thanks. Because that’s how I say thank you: with dessert.
Makes you want to do something nice for me, doesn’t it?
Anyway, the treats needed to be mailed, so I thought cookies then bars then brownies. Because besides pie, I always think about brownies.
My next website needs to be Crazy for Brownies.
And if I could pick one kind of brownie to eat, it would have a crust. Brownies are just better with crust! If you don’t believe me, try it. You’ll thank me.
Naturally my next thought was an Oreo Crust. Because, well, who doesn’t love that?
And then, well. I thought, go big or go home. And I decided I would throw chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on top.
I mean, do I even need to describe how good these are?
Crunchy Oreo crust.
Rich, fudgy, thick chocolate brownie. (These are baked in a 9×9 pan for ultimate thickness!)
Chopped Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Like I said, ridiculous.
In a good way.
My job is hard. But someone has to do it.
