Chocolate Chip {nestle bar filled} Hot Chocolate Brownies

Sorry I couldn't come up with a better title,
but I promise,
these candy filled brownie/cookies
will TOTALLY make up for it.

Last week was our first week back from Christmas break.
Everyone had a great week, but honestly,
I wasn't feeling the lunch packing.

Sugared out over the holidays,
I hadn't really thought of treats for the lunch boxes.

My kids did NOT appreciate my oversight,
not one little bit.

I think I've made up for it in a BIG way this week.

I stocked up on a few of my favorite Nestle items #ChooseSmart -

hot cocoa mix
and of course toll house cookie dough

and turned them into one seriously sweet treat.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
{stuffed with a candy bar}

Hot Chocolate Brownie batter ~
{I used this recipe from Shugary Sweets}
Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough
Nestle Assorted Miniatures {one per cookie/brownie}
 1/2 cup of  Nestle Hot Cocoa Mix {to make the brownies}

preheat the oven to 350

I chose to use  heart shaped molds
muffin tins {lined} would be great, and
they make for easy individual portions for lunch packing

press the cookie dough {1 cookies worth} into the bottom of your pan

top with one miniature bar {I used Nestle, Nestle Crunch, Baby Ruth, and Butterfinger bars}

top with brownie batter

bake for about 11 minutes {this may differ depending on the size pan you use}
when your brownie looks set-up they should be done

Happy Packing {if they last that long}

    1. Thanks Dotothy! I'll be lucky if there are any left for Mondays lunches

  2. First, a chocolate chip brownie bottom, then filled with a gooey Nestle bar, and THEN topped with brownie batter? I think I'm in looooove! These are perfect, although they def. wouldn't last long in my house :)

  3. What a fabulous idea! I love the though of a cookie base, gooey centre and brownie top! :)
