Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Brownies

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I thought it only fitting that I make the most ridiculous dessert combining all of my husband’s favorite things.

1. Chocolate Brownies.

2. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

3. Peanut Butter.

4. Peanut M&M’s.

I contemplated throwing some Reese’s peanut butter cups into the mix too, but forgot to pick them up at the store. I seriously thought about making another trip just for those, but didn’t want to change out of my fat pants. —>ironic.

Anyways, I LOVED these. Love love loved them. And so did my husband. Sugar high to the max, baby.

I like sugar highs, incase you were in question.

Gord thoroughly enjoyed this gift as well. I do it because he’s a good Dad.Gordon and Brooke

See? Good Dad….with a nice set of pipes.

Haaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!ย 

So, tell your Dad you love him with something sweet!

Hi Dad! Love you! Glad you like my pulled pork recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how you make these treats:

Brownie mixture

Start with a boxed brownie mix. I used Pillsbury 19.6 oz box…or something close to that. Stir in some melted butter and two eggs. Stir until smooth.

Brownies

Spread into a greased and lined 9×9 baking dish and bake 25-25 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Peanut butter mixture

For the peanut butter layer, stir together some peanut butter with vanilla, powdered sugar and milk.

You should get a semi-sticky concoction. Spread this over your brownies.

Making oatmeal topping

For the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough, mix together some butter, sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, milk, flour and salt all together.

Oatmeal mixture

Add in your chocolate and oats…

and top your brownies with it. And because it’s Father’s Day, add on some chopped M&M’s in boy-ish colors.

    These were SO GOOD. So sweet. I could only handle about one piece and I left the drizzle off. I had to add a bit more milk to the peanut butter mixture to make it spread-able but I wonder if that’s just cause I’m at a 6000 foot elevation? Anyway. Thanks so much for sharing these, so good. Looking forward to tex mex chicken pasta on the menu tonight.
