Food is a worthy bribe in the world of children. I'm not afraid to use whatever means I have at my disposal to win hearts and coerce cooperation, therefore:
HERE WE GO!!!!!
But first, here's a little commercial message from the land of BEAUTIFUL SEEKER BOXED SETS OF CHRISTMAS NOVELLAS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON AMAZON!!!!!
Hallelujah chorus being sung here!!!!!!
Okay, back to brownies, and links to the boxed sets will be below....
Large brownie mix prepared as directed
foil cupcake liners (I used the "Jumbo size" but regular work, too! Paper sticks to the brownie bottom, so I prefer the foil for these)
SIMPLE SO FAR, RIGHT????
Take two Oreos. Spread a teaspoon of peanut butter on one. Top with another. Add another teaspoon of peanut butter. Place in foil cup in cupcake baking pan. Repeat until your cupcake pan is full..... spoon brownie batter over the cookies. Allow to settle for a minute. Add more as needed.
Bake at 350° for about 18-20 minutes until brownie is done....
Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly because once people try them warm, they will LOVE YOU FOREVER.
Which takes us right back to the coercion detail. Chocolate corrupts... or convinces. Your pick! :)
We ate these too quickly to examine the whys and wherefores of frosting, but I expect either a dark chocolate frosting or a peanut butter buttercream frosting would be marvelous!!!!
These were a huge hit. Today I'm trying them with DOUBLE STUFFED Oreos, because everything is better when it's double-stuffed!!!! :)
Oh, oh, oh, we've got some cuteness to share, too! Cuteness and novella collections, coming up!
Here's the contemporary collection that has just been so much fun to work on with these ladies!!!!
Pre-order is here.... and this is the sweet cover!
