Brownie Bottom Delights

First off, don't make fun of my name for these. I've told you before that coming up with creative names for my recipes is my downfall. I'm descriptive, but I'm not creative. See- these have brownies on the bottom, and they truly are delightful, so... brownie bottom delights it is! Anyway, let's get on track, I know you're more interested in the recipe and less interested in my babble, I understand.

 I made these over a month ago for a family gathering. I had seen recipes like this all over pinterest but I didn't follow any in particular, rather just went for it based off the pictures I had seen. I did two versions- mini muffin tins and a 8x8 pan since this makes a lot. Next time I'd just do a 9x13 pan and call it a day. They all stuck to the mini muffin tins even though I greased the pan excessively and it drove me insane, so in the future these will be made as pictured above. Note I said "in the future"- these will be made often for gatherings. In fact I'm 99% sure these will be gracing my dessert table for Thanksgiving- they are sinfully good!

1 box brownie mix, prepared as directed
1 batch chocolate chip cookie dough
1 bag mini Reese's peanut butter cups

1- Preheat the oven to 350.
2- Pour the brownie batter to the bottom of the 9x13 dish (greased very well).
3- Top with the mini pb cups (you can chop them up or leave them whole).
4- Dalloop the cookie batter over top.
5- Bake 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden, the bottom and sides are firm, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (That might be hard to do since it'll likely go in a pb cup and come out melty, I just kind of judged by color and lack of "wiggle" to the brownies).
6- Allow to cool completely before serving.
