Brownie stuffed mini M&M cookies (or should it be mini M&M cookies stuffed with brownies?)

Rob requested brownie the other night and ate one. I forgot to bring them into work today, so I thought I should find a way to use them up, so I made cookies with mini M&Ms and mini chocolate chips, and stuffed them with brownies!

Oreo stuffed chocolate cookies

These are a request from my youngest goddaughter Sara, for her dance recital tomorrow. They are chocolate cookies stuffed with oreos. I have a couple of these recipes. For these, I used melted chocolate chips, in addition to baking cocoa. They came out huge because I used 4 tbs of dough. Next time I will use 2 tbs.

A yellow m&m signifies a golden oreo inside!

  2. 2 cups flour
  3. 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  4. 2 tsp baking powder
  5. 1 tsp salt

  7. 4 eggs
  8. 1 tbs vanilla
  9. 10 tbs butter, softened
  10. 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  11. 1/2 cup sugar
  12. Oreos!!!

Directions – cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in chocolate. Fold in dry ingredients. Dough will be a little soft. Chill for 30 minutes or so. Scoop out two tbs of dough. Cover an oreo. Repeat process. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Bake 13 to 15 minutes.

Brownie cookies stuffed with tollhouse bars

Brownie cookies stuffed with tollhouse bars

I have made many batches of chocolate chip cookies stuffed with brownies, so I reversed it this time and stuffed a tollhouse bar in a brownie cookie. I didn’t chill the dough, so they came out a little flatter than I prefer, but I think my coworkers will still like them. You can use any chocolate chip cookie bar recipe (homemade or a mix) you want. I recommend my Congo bar recipe on my blog.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 batch congo/tollhouse bars, baked, completely cooled and cut into small squares.
  • 1 brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Water (if you feel dough is too dry, add a tbs or 2)

Directions – combine brownie mix, flour, oil and eggs. Add water if you feel dough is top dry. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and divide in half. Slightly flatten each half. Now, we assemble!

Place half of flattened dough on your countertop
Top with a tollhouse bar square
Top with remaining flattened dough piece
Completely cover tollhouse bar

Chill dough in fridge for a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on your sheet. Bake 10 to 13 minutes. Cool completely

This is how I stagger my cookies

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day filled with peace love and happiness

Brownie stuffed sugar cookies

I made some brownies and didn’t want to bring in “just brownies” to work, so I decided to stuff most of them in sugar cookies. I say most because I ran out of cookie dough, so a few “just brownies” will arrive with me tomorrow morning.

Didn’t do a good job of covering the brownie 😀

Reminders – scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • One pan of brownies, baked, cooled and cut in squares
  • 14 tbs butter softened
  • 2 tbs crisco
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream butter, crisco, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough. Divide in half. Flatten one half. Place a brownie square on top. Flatten other half and place on top of brownie square. Completely cover brownie with dough. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. I fit 8 on a sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. (Lightly golden on bottom) cool completely. Store in covered container.

This is how I stagger cookies on a sheet so they don’t spread into each other

Football Friday treats – divisional playoff weekend

Cake mix cookies stuffed with oreos and topped with fudge frosting

The football Friday treat for NFL Divisional playoff weekend – cake mix cookies, stuffed with Oreos and topped with a fudge frosting. I think they worthy of something as big as divisional playoff weekend. Go Bills!

The only reminders I have is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp. Also,take them out after about 10 minutes. They may not look “done,” but if you leave them in too long, they could try out. Oh, and if you don’t want the fudge frosting, you can sprinkle the warm cookies with powdered sugar instead.

Using leftover Halloween candy

Chocolate stuffed cookies

Someone left a whole bag of extra Halloween candy in our green room at work, so I took it. And I used the peanut butter cups to stuff in chocolate cookies. I have to figure out what to do with the heath bars and whoppers.

Our oven is on it’s way out, but it’s under warranty, so we are getting a new one for free. I ordered it,so I hope our current oven lasts until the new one is delivered. Baking has been an adventure the last 2 plus months!

Remember to spoon your flour and baking cocoa from your container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. I like to chill the individually stuffed cookies for at least a few hours. Also, preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so it gets to the right temperature.

  • 5 tbs Crisco
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Added a peanut butter chip on top

Blend in melted chocolate. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs dough and cover a piece pf leftover Halloween candy. Chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on the sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Oreo is another stuffed cookie option

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with love, happiness and peace.

Stuffed cake mix cookies

Stuffed cake mix cookies (you can see the brownie peaking through)

These are a super easy treat, guaranteed to wow anyone! I used brownies to stuff these cookies. And I cut them in 2 inch squares. You can also use Oreos, mini candy bars, etc. I used a white cake mix, but feel free to mix it up. These cookies can be made in no time!

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cake mix, any flavor
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 to 4 tbs water
  • Oreos, cut up brownies, mini candy bars etc
These are magical! The brownie is peaking through!

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, oil and enough water so the dough comes together and you can work with it.

Place on top of oreo/brownie Square, mini candy etc. Mould dough around it. Scatter on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes. They will seem undercooked, but should be light golden on the bottom. Cool completley.

Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies

Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies

These are the queen of stuffed cookies. An Oreo baked inside a chocolate chip cookie. And they are a request of one of my goddaughters, Sara, for her birthday party. Rob may or may not have taste tested one, so he can vouch for me at the family party tomorrow 🙂

The original Oreo is the best!

The trick to this is to not use too much dough to surround the Oreo. Use 1 1/2 tbs on top and 1 1/2 tbs on the bottom of each Oreo. That way they are nice and puffy and perfect looking.

The Queen of stuffed cookies

Couple of other tips – I also like to use cornstarch to keep the cookies from spreading too much… Spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup… Chill the cookies at least for a few hours.. And preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

Staggered cookies
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 /4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1,tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Oreos!

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs., fold in dry ingredients. Blend in chips. Scoop out 11/2 tbs of dough (I used a cookie scoop), slightly flatten, place an Oreo on top. Scoop out another 11/2 tbs dough, slightly flatten., place on top of Oreo. Mold dough around to completely cover cookie. Chill a few hours in fridge. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet that’s been lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper, stagger cookies. (See pic above)

Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until you see a few golden patches on top and bottoms of cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today., remember to be kind to others, and yourself too. We are all battling something.
