WARNING! I have to be honest right up front with this one. This recipe is not for the faint of heart. No, seriously. If you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, irregular heart beat, obsessive compulsive disorder or are a recovering foodaholic you should seek medical advice from a qualified licensed physician before even reading this post. Should you choose to scroll down this page, view the images, read the recipe and attempt to make and eat these brownies you do so completely at your own risk, assuming full responsibility for any physical, emotional, mental or spiritual responses and releasing this Lunch-Lady of all accountability for the end result of your decision. Consider yourself warned.
So I can’t take full responsibility for the idea of these brownies. While perusing Pinterest (which is my new obsession) I found a picture series of crazy brownies with all your favorite junk foods piled on top of each other; beginning with cookie dough and ending with brownie batter. So I allowed my mind to wander to the favorite junk foods of my own abode. And waalaa, these brownies were born.
It started like this:
Innocent enough right? A nice cookie dough crust. Lots of perfectly normal desserts start like this. No big deal. Anyone can handle that.
But then I did this:
Now I know what you are thinking; “Well that is a bit much Lunch-Lady. You are going a little over board there aren’t you.” And I hear you. I agree. But I did it anyway. I ripped off 24 Reeses Peanut Butter Cup wrappers and placed each one gently on top of that cookie dough.
And worse even still…I didn’t even hesitate to do this next:
Yes it is.
It is absolutely chocolate chip cookie dough topped with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups that are topped with Oreo cookies. Yes it is.
And then, with wild eyed fury I poured this on top:
Dark chocolate fudge brownie mix. It was about this time that the kids realized what I was doing. They couldn’t even speak. They just stood back a safe distance, staring with blank stares, scared to speak for fear that what they were seeing was some sort of strange chocolate mirage that would vanish if words were spoken.
I popped this pan of sin in the oven and less than an hour later this came out:
After what seemed like forever they finally cooled and we ate one each in silence. You can only eat one per 24 hour period, trust me. I would love to describe these brownies with poetic and flowing prose but there are no words in any language to do that.
- 1 roll chocolate chip cookie dough at room temperature
- 24 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
- 24 Oreo cookies
- 1 box of your favorite brownies, batter prepared per box directions
Putting It All Together:
- Smush cookie dough evenly into the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9 glass casserole dish.
- Layer candy and cookies on top of cookie dough.
- Pour and spread brownie batter over cookies.
- Bake at 275 for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
- Remove from oven and cool 20 minutes.
Enjoy…if you dare!
