Peanut Butter Oreo Brownie Cupcakes

Yes, you can re-read the title but that IS what it says.  Oh, you guys.  I don't really have words for this.  

My sister shared this recipe with me.   She always finds the most decadent stuff!  I hope to find out where she found it, if I do, I will add it to the bottom of this post!   Anyway, talk about a sinful, decadent, rock your world dessert.  If you love Oreo's, peanut butter and chocolate, just mix them together and this little piece of ecstasy will knock your socks off!

This is a lot of convenience items, and if you don't groove on it, make your own brownie batter from scratch!  It should make 18 cupcakes.  If it doesn't, don't sue me, and please feel free to lick the batter bowl, eat a cookie, or lick the peanut butter spoon at will!

You will need:
36 Oreo cookies
1 cup peanut butter of your choice
1  large size brownie mix, your favorite. 

Place 18 cupcake liners in your cupcake/muffin pan.  Into each cup layer as follows....  Cookie, peanut butter, cookie, peanut butter.  Do this with all of them. 

Mix up your brownie mix and pour over the top of each cookie/peanut butter tower.  Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners.  Don't worry if you think it didn't get all the way to the bottom, it will get there in the oven!  Bake using the brownie mix directions! 

Let these cool 15 minutes before serving.  Heaven, pure heaven. 

These freeze beautifully, they keep for several days in an airtight container although let's be real, they aren't going to last several minutes, let alone days. 

P.S.  Should you happen to have brownie batter leftover, just bake it up like a cupcake!

  1. I don't even have a cupcake pan. Do to limited space, and just me living here, I find I can do without it. I've seen this done before in a 13"x9" cake pan form. What they did there was to put down a thin layer of brownie mix, like you'd do with tomato sauce when making lasagna, the the Oreo. On top of Oreo, a regular size peanut butter cup, 2 layers then rest of the brownie mix. Frosting, equal parts peanut butter and melted semi-sweet chocolate chips. Depending on how much frosting you want depends on how much of this you make. Boy is is good. Some milk and a half a pan of these makes for dinner. ��
