These brownie bombs are stuffed with yummy monster cookie dough -- perfect for you and your little monsters!
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • ¾ cup smooth peanut butter, plus 1 Tbsp pb, divided
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • ½ cup - ¾ cup quick oats (depending on your preference)
  • About 2 cups flour
  • 1 & ½ cups miniature M&M's, divided
  • 9x13" pan brownies, baked and cooled
  • ½ cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1 pkg vanilla Candiquik
  • 1 pkg Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
  • 1 stick butter
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  1. Make your dough! If making the from-scratch cookie dough, in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and ¾ cup peanut butter until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in the sugars and beat to combine. Add in the vanilla and milk to incorporate.
  2. Beat in the flour to combine, and lastly, add in the oats and ONE cup of the mini M&M's, stirring to blend. Roll the dough into Tablespoon-sized balls and place on a foil-rimmed cookie sheet. Freeze until solid, a couple hours, or overnight.
  3. Cut the cooled brownies into approx. 1" sized squares. Take a square in the palm of your hand and gently press down to flatten. Wrap the brownie around the frozen cookie dough ball to cover; press the brownie around to help blanket the cookie dough completely. If it doesn't totally cover it, that's okay. Return the brownie-covered balls to the baking sheet and freeze for about 20 minutes to set.
  4. Microwave the Candiquik according to package directions; once smooth, stir in the remaining Tablespoon of peanut butter to combine. Dip the bombs into the peanut butter mixture, coating completely, before returning to the cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with remaining mini M&Ms and mini chocolate chips.
  5. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. Makes approx. 15-18 truffles, depending on the size of the cookie dough and cut brownies.
  6. *For the "Even Easier" recipe, mix together the Betty Crocker Oatmeal cookie mix with the softened butter, peanut butter and milk in the bowl of a stand mixer until a soft dough forms. Stir in the mini M&M's and prepare the recipe as normal. This is an easy shortcut!
