Reese’s Pieces Brownie Cookies

I’ll spare you some long-winded story about these cookies. Basically, I came across this recipe a while back and made it a little easier to follow. Other than that, all you need to know is that they’re kind of a pain in the ass to make, but totally worth the stack of dishes you end up with. 

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (that’s a stick) butter
  • 2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1  cup Reese’s Pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, sugars, cocoa powder, and vanilla on high speed until it roughly doubles  in size (about 5 minutes). If you’ve got a stand mixer, use it. Why? So you can multitask, son!
  4. While you’re whisking away, melt the butter and chocolate chips. Use a double boiler. Use a microwave. Use a saucepan. I really don’t care. Just make sure they’re completely melted and thoroughly combined.
  5. Reduce the mixer to medium and add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and—you guessed it!—mix them until combined.
  6. Reduced mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl (just like college!) to ensure it is fully incorporated.
  7. Fold in the Reese’s Pieces.
  8. Drop batter onto prepared cookie sheets (parchment paper is the bee’s knees). Aim for like 1 1/2 tbsp in size. This batter is a pain to work with, so do your best.
  9. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes. You’ll know when they’re done when they look all crackily awesome.
  10. Get snowed in and eat the two dozen you had planned to give away all by yourself.
