Oreo Peanut Butter Brownies

    When I saw the idea of putting cookies into a brownie and cooking them like cupcakes, I thought that seemed like a chocolate lover's delight. The steps are very easy and there's only a few ingredients, all of them sweet. My only problem was running out of peanut butter. Some of the cookies had a double layer of peanut butter and the others only one. I did make a difference, because the peanut butter really helps cut the overload of chocolate.
   I expected the cookies to soften up in the center after baking but they didn't, there's still a cookie crunch in the middle. We tried a quick dip in the microwave to see if that helped, and it did a little. The kids who love hand-held sweets were all up for this idea and it went over well with them. The hubby and I who are not big on sweets found this a little too over the top on chocolate scale. Those of you who are chocolate fans should like this just fine.
