Brownies & Bars

Caramel Filled Peanut Butter Brownies

My name is Kristen and I am a chocoholic. Today I needed something chocolate (well, everyday I need something chocolate), so this is it. Inspired by a recipe Caramel-Filled Brownies, this is my twist. I think you want one…

Caramel Filled Peanut Butter Brownies

1 pkg (18.25 oz) dark chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup evaporated milk, divided
1 pkg (8 oz) Nabisco Nutter Butter Bites, coarsely chopped, divided
1 pkg (8 oz) Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Minis
1 pkg (14oz) caramels, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 350°. With pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into cake mix until crumbly. Add 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and mix well to make brownie dough. Mix in half of the chopped Nutter Butter Bites (about 1 heaping cup). Press 2/3 of the dough into a sprayed 9″x13″ pan to make brownies base. Bake for 12 minutes, or until set, cool on wire rack about 10 minutes.

Melt caramels and remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk together in microwave or in saucepan over low heat, stir until smooth. Set aside, to cool slightly.

Evenly sprinkle remaining chopped Nutter Butter Bites and Reeses Minis over baked brownie base. Pour melted caramel all over the top of Nutter Butters and Reeses Minis. Drop remaining brownie dough in little globs evenly over caramel. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool completely. Refrigerate a bit for easier cutting. Store at room temperature.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Reese’s Minis

Every once in a while you gotta have a peanut butter chocolate fix, you know?  This is an adaptation of a recipe from browneyedbaker.com, I used crunchy peanut butter because I love nuts and added Reese’s Minis for an even more intense peanut butter chocolate flavor.  Oh, these are dangerous!

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
