Engagement Brownies {Recipe}

I know, I know, I was going to lay off the recipes, but these really are a delicious treat. Make some for yourself, stat. You'll be happy you did.

In my house, we call these engagement brownies because I made them for my husband {then boyfriend} and he swears he knew he had to marry me once he tasted them. So easy to make and REALLY delicious! I was given this recipe by another teacher when I was student teaching. I still think about her, and send my thanks cosmically every time I bite into one of these beauties.

I thought I took a picture of one, but I guess I didn't. You get the idea....

To create engagement brownies for yourself:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a box of brownies (I prefer the milk chocolate kind) but really any kind will do. Once your brownies are prepared to the box directions, simply spoon the brownie mix into the tin foil muffin cups {the paper ones WILL stick!} I usually hoard the tin foil ones and use the paper cups for all other muffin baking. Bake the brownie muffins for about 12 minutes. In the meantime, unwrap Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (either the small bite sized ones, or more recently we've been using snack sized, YUM!) Make sure you've removed ALL of the paper. Once your brownies have baked for about 12 minutes, pull them out of the oven and place ONE Reeses into the top of each brownie. Sometimes I try to push them down so they disappear and are covered in a delicious layer of brownie, but that is not necessary. Once each brownie has a Reeses, place them BACK into the oven for about 10 more minutes. If you prefer 'em a little gooey, back off the time, if you're paranoid, bake 'em a touch longer.

Eat one while they are still warm. You'll be happy you did.

We had this instead of birthday cake and my chocolate lovin' hubby did not mind one bit!
