As the holidays are coming up and as you are growing too old to sit at the kids table, family members or friends will ask you to bring something to a party. I don’t know about you, but the holidays are stressful enough without trying to make something edible for your loved ones.
One Thanksgiving, I met a family friend who changed my life. She gave me this dessert recipe and it’s my go-to for parties, as well as end-of-the-semester study sessions.
This recipe is a collection of all things good: brownies, Reeses, and cookies. And the beautiful thing is, all can be store-bought. You really can’t go wrong or mess it up.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1 box of brownie mix (look at box for additional ingredients required)
- 1 package of 24 count chocolate chip cookie dough
- 24 Reeses
You can choose any type of cookie. You will also need:
- cupcake tin tray
- cupcake liners
That’s it. The assembly is nearly as easy. Here are the instructions:
- Prepare brownie mix according to package. Leave the mixture in the mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Fill cupcake tray with liners, and unwrap all Reeses.
- To assemble the “cupcake”, first place 1 cookie dough square on the bottom. Mold the cookie dough slightly (but remember, it will expand upon baking) to fit the holder.
- Place the Reeses upside-down on top of the cookie dough.
- Top with a tablespoon of brownie mixture.
- When finished assembling, place on middle rack of oven and cook according to cookie dough instructions.
This is a savory treat, but people will want more than one. I’ve brought 24 of these to a party of 10 and they were gone within an hour. It’s a different treat that combines everyone’s favorites!
