I got the idea to make them from a picture I saw on Pinterest. I clicked on it and it took me to "My Pampered Kitchen Adventures" Blog. Click on the link and slowly scroll down and you'll see the picture that intrigued me. I knew some day I was going to make these wonderful looking brownie/cookie concoctions. I didn't know it was a Pampered Chef pan at the time. I had only seen the picture on Pinterest. While placing an order with my Pampered Chef lady I saw this pan and ordered one. Not knowing I had the exact pan I needed. The pan has been hanging out in my kitchen for a few months. I come a across it every now and then and think I need to make that recipe. Then life gets in the way.
Well, my daughter was off on one of her surfing trips with friends and I like to send them with a bag of treats even though they aren't kids anymore. I love surprising them with something yummy and they love getting something yummy. I decided to make these squares of deliciousness. Only problem I didn't really have time to make cookie dough or brownie batter. I decided to follow the blog's recipe exactly and use store bought cookie dough and a brownie mix.
I did what she had suggested in her blog and used Reese's Peanut Butter cups and Oreos for the filling.
I used 1 tablespoon of cookie dough which was one square of the premade cookie dough.
I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of brownie batter. I used a cookie scoop for this and it work out well for measuring and neatness. I just barely had enough brownie mix for 2 pans or 24 cookies. Had to use my Pampered Chef rubber spatula to scrap the last bit of batter for the last cookie. It was close.
I baked them at 325 degrees F with my convection oven for 18 minutes. As you can see they came out perfectly the way I wanted. No over flowing. Nice neat delectable squares.
To make 24 cookie/brownies I used:
1 package Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar
1 package Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
12 (15g ea.) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (not small snack size, but not regular)
12 regular filling Oreos
Moment of truth... they fell right out of pan. No sticking at all. I'm thinking that maybe some people used a different pan. The Pampered Chef one truly was nonstick.
Either side looks impressive. You could serve them either way.
