As a lover of chocolate chip cookies, I'm always looking for something related. I borrowed this idea from the Reese's Facebook page, using my favorite chocolate chip recipe, box brownies, and Pieces instead of the Peanut Butter Cups they used.

Amy's Grandma's Cookies
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2.5 cups flour
Most of a 12 oz bag of chocolate chips

Mix all in a bowl. (For regular cookies, roll into small balls and bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.)

For this recipe, grease muffin tins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover the bottom of the muffin tin with cookie dough...perhaps 1/2 inch deep.

Prepare brownie mix. Sprinkle Reese's Pieces on top of cookie dough, 8-10? Then top with brownie mix. The cookie/brownie mix should fill 2/3 of the cup.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, and check that a toothpick comes out mostly clean (chocolate chips notwithstanding).
