Chocolate lovers will be happy today! I made Easy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies this weekend for a friend’s dinner party. I might or might not have gained a few extra pounds… but believe me it was totally worth it!!

Just looking at these photos makes me sad that they are all gone. I have a feeling I will be making these again very soon!

Easy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies
  • 1 package of refrigerated peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • 1-2 eggs (depends on brownie mix)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 packages of Dark Chocolate Reese's Cups candy
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Press cookie dough evenly into an ungreased 13x9 baking pan.
  3. Pour brownie ingredients in a large bowl and follow box directions for mixing eggs, water and oil. Pour batter over cookie dough and spread evenly around the pan.
  4. Bake 35-40 minutes until done.
  5. While brownies are baking, chop candy into crumbs. Sprinkle candy onto the brownies as soon as you take them out to cool. Candy should melt onto brownies.
  6. Let cool and cut brownies.
I used Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix it only takes 1 egg.

If you can't find Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie dough, you can make your own from scratch or get Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and add chocolate chips to the brownie mix.

    Lovely stuff!!

  2. I came here looking for something else but saw this first. Had to share it! I am partial to the Sooners but I love the Cowboys too.

  3. These blow me away! Can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing them!

  4. Those look insane!

    I like insane :D

  5. LOVE this Amy! my family would flip if I made these.

    Who cares if they are from a box or not! and I’ve not news for those “box mixer haters” – they’d be SHOCKED to found out how many cake bakers use them! – I’ve been told by a pastry chef that box mixes are great because your dry ingredients are perfectly premeasured for you.

    Besides that, how DARE someone come to your blog/ your space and tell you what you can/can’t share. Shame on them!…….guess they go out and milk the cow each morning to get milk for their cereal too ;)

  6. YUM – they look AWESOME Amy! Pinning now :)

  7. Amy, I love quick and easy recipes like this. My busy schedule and lack of baking talent doesn’t allow for baked from scratch delights. I so appreciate the free inspiration you offer here on a daily basis!

  8. Good granny those brownies look and sound amazing!!! As a homeschooling mother of four and home business owner I am all about what is quick and easy. I don’t make desserts often anymore, but when I do, they have to be easy or I wont’ make them.

    Thank you, Amy, for sharing this simple but delicious recipe!

  9. Honestly a lot of the time I just use a box mix for the mix it self…i dont add the other ingredients suggested on the box and the sweet im trying to make comes out oh so amazing that a lot of the time..well actually all of the time no one ever notices the difference…it doesnt make them sick and they love it! which always makes me smile…I love cooking and I love cooking when it makes other people people smile!! theres no reason to be ugly…if you saw the recipe and didnt want to use it there was no reason to even comment. Just hit the exit button and leave it alone…no reason to be ugly. A lot of amazing cooks and bakers use those “fake” box mixes and dollars to donuts you guys who think its real have been probably fooled for years!

    Sorry to keep adding to the comments but I am hoping I have the final say!! I bake from scratch when I have time and I use mixes when I am short on time. Everything I bake is equally good and loved by my family and friends. I made these brownies yesterday and they are FABULOUS! I appreciate comments when a recipe is written incorrectly and someone is correcting the mistake or commenting that their family did not care for a recipe when they have followed it as written (not the people who change it and then criticize it’s outcome) but to be rude when you aren’t even going to try the recipe? Why would you see a need to do that? I love this blog, keep up the good work!

  11. So sorry about the negative comments-I appreciate the recipes you share!

  12. Try not to take it to heart. I did after a few comments on my blog and deleted the whole blog. The blog was intended for my immediate family only and others stumbled upon it over time. Then one day it got ugly with a couple of people and continued to be. Funny thing is, they kept coming back…hmmm.
    Now I look back and think they may have just had a blog themselves and wanted to run off the competition. Please ignore them.This sounds fabulous!

  13. I too am a lover of cake mixes, brownie mixes, cookie mixes etc. Without them I would rarely have time to make stuff to take for spreads at work or for my family. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” :D

    One of the ladies I used to work with always brought her famous to die for brownies – in fact I think a lot of times we’d have spread just so Jessica would bring these brownies.

    I asked her for her recipe & she said with a big smile “Two boxes of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix. Follow the directions on the box!”

    I asked her if she doctored them up because from a vast amount of taste testing over the years I just knew they could not possibly be from just a plain old box mix! “Nope! Just followed the directions on the box.” she said.

    I didn’t completely believe her until I bought a couple of boxes and made them. She was right. They are to die for just like that!

    The description on Ghirardelli’s website says: “The classic brownie with a sophisticated twist. Rich, moist brownie with premium Ghirardelli® Chocolate Chips is sure to create an intense chocolate experience chocolate lovers are sure to cherish.”

    These brownies used in Amy’s recipe would be beyond heavenly! And as soon as I am no longer on a low carb diet I will make her recipe! :D

    And as for the two cranky pants ladies who think they are above using a mix? Good! Leaves more for the rest of us to enjoy.
