Eat: Kooky Bars

Would you believe that one dessert can involve cookies, brownies, and reese's?! Well, believe it people because I'm about to blow your mind. I found the recipe on Pinterest here, and you might notice it was only a pin - no link, no name, nothing more than the basics. So I obviously had to come up with a name for these mind-blowing bars and Cookie-Brownie-Reese Bars doesn't have the same ring as cool dessert names like "Crack Brownies" or "Better than Sex Cake". Which brought me to Kooky Bars. Get it, "cookie" kooky bars?! Go with it.

Do not make these if you are trying to eat clean, lose weight, or cut down your sugar intake! 

1 box brownie mix (including necessary ingredients)
16-oz. ready-to-bake cookie dough
12 (approx.) Reese's cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Evenly distribute and smoosh the cookie dough into the bottom of each cupcake spot. Place one Reese's cup upside-down on top of the cookie dough. Prepare the brownie batter as instructed. Spoon 1-2 spoonful of brownie batter on top of each Reese's cup. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

+ If your cupcake pan is nonstick you do not need to spray it with cooking spray.

+ You will not use all the brownie batter. Only use 1-2 spoonfuls per cupcake. I highly recommend making use of the remaining brownie batter by baking a small batch of brownies or eating raw.

+ There is absolutely no reason why you need to wear gloves when making these. I truly just despise getting my hands dirty and have 2 boxes of latex gloves under our kitchen sink...

Mind. Blown. Enjoy! :)


  1. Oh Reese's how I love thee!! My butt not so much!! These look so absolutely yummy and addicting!

  2. These look awesome!!! You should link up with the Taste of Tuesday on letsgetbananas.com!

  3. Oh holy crap. I think I need to make these for Friday's Coach bingo.

  4. Holy YUM! You can send these to me (if there are any left) asap! :) Seriously drooling over these!

  5. You basically just spoke to my heart... Reeses, I'm obsessed (I mean, it's even listed in my side bar about section that I love reeses). Chocolate in the form of brownies... LOVE... Sweets in general... I'm addicted! I'm loving and hating you all at the same time (although, the hating... that's a joke, I don't mean it) I will dream of these... but I probably shouldn't make them because let's be honest here... I wouldn't share. I also wouldn't moderate my portion size. See the issue here? lol Looks amazing though!!

  6. Oh no... I did not need to discover these. I'm obsessed with Reese's... especially the holiday ones (pumpkins, Christmas trees, eggs, etc). YUM!

  7. Yummy! Pinned this so I can try it out later!

  8. I think I may be speechless right now. You can't see me but I'm wiping the drool off the side of my face ;)

  11. Oh dear these look fantastic! I have a work party on Thursday and these just may have to make their debut!
    Stopping by from Taste of Tuesday!

  12. OMG I need to make these ASAP!

  13. Mind blown is right. I showed my husband and I think he started drooling immediately.

  14. Ohhhh my goodness!! This combination....loveeee!! I feel like I need to make these right now for breakfast. Would that be a bad thing? Does the grocery store deliver ingredients??

  15. I have two boxes of gloves in the kitchen too! I really can't stand touching meat, but now I have them because I have eczema on my hands.
    I'm gonna have to try making these. They look delish!
