Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownie Bars
Two of my favorite treats are brownies and cookie dough. So I figured… why not put them together? I am so glad I did, these bars are amazing!
9x13-inch Baking Pan
Microwave Safe Bowl
- 19.5 ounces Pillsbury Brownie Mix 1 box
- ⅔ cup vegetable oil (as listed on box)
- ¼ cup water (as listed on box)
- 2 eggs (as listed on box)
- 6 Tablespoons peanut butter divided
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup salted butter softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ⅓ cup milk
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups peanut butter M&M's
Cook your brownies according to directions on the box for a 9x13-inch pan.
Once they are out of the oven, take 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter and gently spread it over your warm brownies. Let them sit and cool.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter until smooth.
Add the sugar, brown sugar, milk and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Carefully add the flour, and continue to mix at low speed until fully combined.
Spoon the cookie dough onto the cooled brownies and spread gently into an even layer.
Sprinkle on all of the M & M's so they are spread out across all the brownies.
Melt the last 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter in the microwave (about 30 seconds) and drizzle over your brownies.
Cover and place in refrigerator until serving.
