I love Todd Wilbur’s copycat recipe as it’s one of the richest chocolate chip cookie doughs I’ve had the pleasure of working with. And the taste–nothing short of amazing!
I made up a batch of these a couple of weeks ago for John to give as gifts to some folks he was visiting in the Atlanta area. Each container had six of these delicious brownies as well as Praline Brookies, Oreo Cookie Surprises, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Surprise Brownies. I got rave reviews from one sweet gal who thought my “gourmet” brownies were just awesome. All I can say is you’ll be hard pressed to keep your hands out of the cookie jar if you make up a batch of these amazing treats! Chocolate and peanut butter really do go together so well.

Here’s what I did.
In a large mixing bowl put softened butter, brown sugar, white sugar and eggs.
Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and real (not imitation) vanilla.
Whisk to combine or use an electric mixer.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Also add chocolate chips.
Press half of the chocolate chip cookie dough into a 9×13″ glass baking dish that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.
Unwrap Reese cups and remove and discard wrappers. Place Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in a 4×6 pattern for a total of 24 .75-oz. cups in each pan.
Press remaining cookie dough on top of peanut butter cup layer. I pressed the dough in my hands to flatten it out. You can also roll it out with a rolling pin and place the dough on top, if you desire.
Bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
