A layer of brownie topped with a layer of peanut butter cookie come together in a perfect brookie union.
On Saturday, my husband got a text from a friend asking him to go out. 15 minutes later, they were out the door. My friends and I have been trying to plan a girls night for a month. A MONTH. That’s how long it takes us to coordinate our schedules/husband schedules/baby schedules/sitter schedules. I swear we don’t make it complicated, it just is.
These days, a lot of our date nights and girls nights consist of a movie and baked good, which is totally fine by me. Julia can be upstairs sleeping and I don’t have to leave my house or put on presentable clothes, which makes my life easier.
I usually make some type of dessert for movie night. Because I couldn’t decide between a brownie or a cookie, I made this Peanut Butter Brookie. Layer of brownie + layer of peanut butter cookie = best of both worlds.
If you’re short on time (who isn’t), you can totally use a brownie mix for the brownie layer. Just make sure you don’t get a “family size” box. I recommend the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate one, if you go that route. It’s my favorite.
My cousin/bestie and I made a point to see both Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 in the theater. I can’t even tell you how many times we’ve seen the original at this point. It’s one of our favorites. So, naturally, I had my calendar marked to pick up the second one at Walmart when it came out on Tuesday (actually, my mom took Julia and grabbed it for me while I was at work). Only Walmart has the Blu-Ray/Soundtrack combo pack and if you know the movie, you know the music is basically the best part, so the combo pack is necessary. If I wasn’t impatient, I’d wait until Christmas to give her the gift set.
We have a girls night planned for this weekend to watch it together but last night, Bob got to watch it with me. He won’t tell you he liked it, but he did. I have a feeling I’ll have to make another pan of brookies for this weekend.
Head to Walmart to grab the exclusive Pitch Perfect 2 Blu-Ray/Soundtrack combo pack. Soundtrack includes some of your favorite songs from Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 (while supplies last – seriously, I saw some people on IG saying their store only got a dozen).

I love how these do not require a mixer! They are so tasty and easy to make. I think they could use a little more peanut butter cookie to brownie ratio, but they’re so gooey and delicious.

I love that, too 🙂
