Ingredients

For the cookie layer:

  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 Tagalong cookies

For the brownie layer:

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
  • 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder

Directions

For the cookie layer:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 12-cup muffin pan generously with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat to combine. Add in the egg, and beat to incorporate. Add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat to incorporate. Divide the cookie batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Place a Tagalong cookie on top of each cookie dough layer.   

For the brownie layer:

Melt the butter and chocolate chips over a double-boiler, stir in sugar. Once melted, transfer the chocolate to a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Stir the flour mixture into the chocolate batter. Top off each muffin tin with the brownie batter, being sure to fill in any gaps around the cookie.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool for about 45 minutes before serving.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
