Super Slutty Brownies

These brownies are inspired by The Londoner's Slutty Brownies. I chose to take it up a notch and add in some Reese's peanut butter cups for a truly mouth watering dessert that is sure to please everyone.

Recipe yields 25 brownies

8 large Reese's peanut butter cups
17 double-stuffed Oreo cookies

Chocolate chip cookies:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Chocolate brownies:
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9"x9" baking pan by lining it with tin foil and then coating it with non-stick cooking spray. First we will make the chocolate chip cookie dough. In a medium bowl, mix butter and sugars.

Add vanilla and egg to the butter mixture and mix well.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just incorporated.

Add the chocolate chips and mix to evenly distribute.

Use the dough to coat the bottom of the baking pan making an even layer.

Next, create a pattern with your Oreos and Reese's.

Now, we will make our brownie batter. Start by melting the chocolate and butter using a double broiler or in the microwave.

Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes or so then add the eggs, vanilla and sugar. Whisk in flour and salt until just combined and no white streaks are visible.

Pour the batter on top of the Oreo/Reese's layer and place in the oven.

Bake for 40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let completely cool before you slice your brownies.

These brownies are very rich so I advise you to serve with a large, cold glass of milk. Enjoy!
