Ingredients

  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 12 Reeses regular size peanut butter cups, unwrapped
  • Oatmeal Cookie Layer

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips OR semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9×9 inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and chocolate over medium heat and stir until smooth. (This can also be done in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir every 30 seconds to make sure it doesn’t burn)
  • Transfer metled chocolate to a large bowl. Add eggs and sugar and mix until smooth. Stir in vanilla and salt. Add flour and mix until just combined.
  • Pour 1/2 of the batter into prepared pan. Gently press peanut butter cups into the batter. Pour the rest of the batter over the peanut butter cups. Bake 30-35 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  • In a medium bowl combine peanut butter, brown sugar and mix until smooth. Add egg and mix again until smooth.
  • In a small bowl whisk together oats and baking soda. Add oats to wet mixture and mix until combined. Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.
  • Drop teaspoon-sized dollops of cookie dough onto the baked brownies. Continue to do this until the dough is gone or the brownies are completely covered.
  • Return the pan to the oven for about 10 minutes or until cookie layer starts to brown slightly.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars. Store in airtight container at room temperature (or chilled) for up to 5 days.
