Yummy! Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Brownies!

For my husband's birthday, I always ask him what he wants me to makefor him to eat. We LIVE to eat here! It's all about the food! He wanted something for dessert and he loves Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. So we brainstormed and came up with these...

So delicious! They have a chocolate cookie on the bottom, brownie on the top and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in the middle. They were super easy to make, too!
Here's what I did:
For a 15X9 inch cookie sheet or Large stoneware bar pan.
  • 2 packages of chocolate chip cookie dough. (any brand you like) softened a bit.
  • 24-30 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. unwrapped.
  • 1 box brownie mix and ingredients to make brownies.

Preheat oven to 350F. Roll out the cookie dough evenly on the bottom of pan. Arrange the peanut butter cups on top of the cookie dough. Mix the brownies as the box instructs and pour over the top. Bake for about 25-30 mins depending on your oven. Mine is like on the 22-25 minute range of time... it bakes FAST! Let cool for a bit. Then cut them into serving sizes with a plastic knife.

Give them a try and let me know what you think!

I love Pinterest because of stuff like this!

Pinterest is my new favorite thing! I have been obsessed with it since I joined back in February. But when I saw this pin.... I was  amazed!!!

Check out this Awesome Paisley Table HERE! or click on the picture!
This was the coolest idea that I have ever seen! Thank you to Ashley and her Blog, Domestic Imperfection! I have been hunting around my house since seeing this to find something to transform!!!
I found this table...
It was a hand-me-down piece that I got when we moved to this house 7 years ago. It has been a very functional piece but I have never loved it. (Not really my style) Sorry MOM! So it was a perfect choice to refinish! My friend had a stencil that I borrowed and I got to work!
I then had to decide what color I wanted this baby to be. I sampled a red color that I had on hand and I wasn't impressed... So I went with orange! I followed the tutorial from Domestic Imperfection And I am so happy with the results! What a fun project! I just need to get new knobs for the drawer and it will be complete but I couldn't wait to post the transformation!

It is such an awesome feeling to complete a project like this! I really love this piece of furniture now!

Please leave a comment telling me which knobs you like better!

Coral nails stamped!

Coral nail polish is one of my favorites for summer! I did this for the weekend for a special occasion, because I think the coral color goes great with the summer brights that I would be wearing! I used my nail stamps to do the white part of the design, then the dotting tool to put the green dots, and then finished with a bit of glitter! Love 'em!
