I hope this finds you, rested, relaxed, and that you had a great Memorial Weekend. When I was reading one of my favorite bloggers post on this recipe for The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar . I knew I just had to try this recipe out! So in honor for our Memorial Day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. I want to Thank You all who have served our country ! Thank You for keeping us safe, for fighting for our country. When finding a link for Memorial Day I found this 1915, poem inspired by "In Flanders Fields," Moina Michael replied with her own poem: We cherish too, the Poppy red
But as you know... when it comes to recipes by now...I have to put my own spin on it! Cupcakes are the craze right now, so thinking that in mind...instead of making bar cookies I made brownie cups. Oh MY ! This is decadency American all the way ! How fitting for our Memorial Day ending !
Thankful we wee able to enjoy our country's freedom today for I was a relaxed baker today...We enjoyed a 5 mile hike, stopped by our local REI for the Memorial Sale and of course, hungry afterwards! So my smart husband, found that one of my favorite California hamburger places was just around the block ! Well , it was a big block but so Thankful they came to San Diego !
BurgerFest for us ! Yum ! This burger place was my stomping places in college.When studying late, I would call one of my friends or my Cousin Diane who was visiting from Arizona. to go with me for a snack. Mind you, this was years ago, and when your younger you can get away with eating in those wee hours of the night/morning ! So worth it !
So getting down to the recipe, I used Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie dough I found a two-fer deal on Oreos. So I got one double stuff package and the other was the new Oreo Mint Fudge Cremes .
I used my trusty Pampered Chef Muffin Pan, instead of using 9x13 pan. Instead of using waxed paper, I used *Parchment Paper cut in 4x4 squares.Used a glass that fits in muffin pan to press parchment paper to form pan.
*Note: I experimented using parchment paper and without. The Parchment paper made it so much easier taking the brownie cups out. When I didn't use the parchment paper, it was a crisper edge to them but tricker to get out. Means more patience to eat these gooey goodness, which is hard to do...As always I would love to hear if you tried these :)
