Last weekend, my girlfriends and I decided to get together for brunch with our kids. Each person was supposed to bring something, so I immediately said I would take dessert. I love perusing Pinterest for new dessert recipes, and this one for Peanut Butter Double Fudge Brownie Cookies sounded like a winner.
I always look for recipes that don't look too complicated to make and don't have too much butter or oil. This recipe fit the bill. Unfortunately, they didn't turn out the greatest as cookies, so with the remaining dough, I decided to make mini brownie bites. I really like this recipe better as brownie bites. The cookies turned out very flat and a little dry, but the brownie bites were perfect. They were fudgy and I loved the combination of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
Peanut Butter Double Fudge Brownies (recipe adapted from Kevin & Amanda)

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, beat butter, water, eggs, brownie mix and flour until just combined. Stir in Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
Use a medium (1.5 tbsp) cookie scoop to place dough in a mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
