Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars

I've done it.  I created the best dessert ever.
My friends, let me introduce you to my Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars

How quarantine treating ya?

Considering my last three recipes are bread, pizza and dessert, I'll let you take a gander at how I'm doing.

Just when I proclaim to myself "this morning is going so good!", all hell breaks loose and someone {sometimes me} is in tears.  It's just HARD.  When you have kids who are used to the structure of school, their friends, having teachers that aren't their Mom, recess and just normal socialization....we each seem to have a "moment" throughout the day.

Enter in these brookie bars.

Cookie dough, peanut butter and chocolate make everything better.  P.S. - - > a "brookie" is a combination of a a cookie and a brownie.  Just wanted to clarify that.

Moving on.

It was again one of those "weeks".  My handy dandy planner {that is kinda my bible} is no longer filled with social obligations or ball games.  It is now filled with Google Meet video calls {for three kids}, assignment deadlines and well, that is it.

No haircuts or oil changes or weekend trips.

Just school.

Oh and well, blog recipe days - which have you noticed is always Thursday?  I'm trying to be consistent with that this year, then you just know what to expect.

So today, this wonderful Thursday, I give you my Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars.  You can thank the Easter Bunny for these.  The hubs and kids got me flowers and a big 'ol bag of Reese's...so why not do some baking with them?

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars

I love me a layered dessert.

One that has multiple flavors and textures.  In this one the bottom layer is a chocolate chip cookie, the middle layer are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and the top layer is a fudgy brownie.

Should I keep going?

All three bake together like a dream.  A firmer cooker, a melty peanut butter cup and a super rich brownie.  Grab a glass of milk!  You'll need it.

I'm imagining myself making these for YEARS to come.  My family fought over them {a good fight, not like our other daily fights} and proclaimed it one of the best desserts I've ever made.  Which is saying a lot, as I bake a LOT of desserts.

I cannot wait to hear about these being baked up in your house.  What else do we have to do right now?  NOTHING.  We have nothing.

If you don't trust yourself with the whole pan {18 bars}....keep half and freeze half.  Or drop off half to another friend with a sweet tooth.  They will rejoice!  I cannot find the proper words to tell you how rich and delicous they are.

Tag me on social media if you make them!

Yield: 18 bars


Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars

Oh my, my new favorite dessert! And super simple to make. Layer a cookie dough mix, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and finally a fudgy brownie top layer. The three are a match made in heaven!
Prep time: 15 MCook time: 45 MTotal time: 60 M


Bottom Layer
  • 17.5 oz Chocolate Chip Cookie mix
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
Middle Layer
  • 30 miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped
Top Layer
  • 18.3 oz Fudge Brownie box mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs


How to cook Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookie Bars

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl combine the chocolate chip cookie mix, softened butter and egg.  Mix together into a soft dough.  Press this into the bottom of the baking pan.
  3. Gently press the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups into the chocolate chip cookie dough, making 6 lines of 5 each.
  4. In the same bowl combine the brownie mix, water, oil and egg.  Mix together and pour over the two layers, covering all of the peanut butter cups.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes.  The edges should pull away a bit from the sides and the top should be slightly cracked.
  6. Allow to completely cool before cutting with a hot knife (sharp knife run under hot water).
  7. Cut into 18 bars.  Keep wrapped up for safe storage.
