My baby sister [who, at ten, probably deserves to lose the title baby] and I spent the day together this Saturday while my parents met with the architect designing their home. It seems unbelievable to me that superstorm sandy was three months ago. We’ve come so far, both my family personally and as the Jersey Shore in general, but there is so much left to do, so much devastation still to be cleaned up and restored.
I decided for Saturday that there is no better way to spend a sister day than by baking something new and delicious, and my parents Superbowl party the next day gave us the perfect excuse. I found this recipe on Pinterest [where else?] and while I’m not sure what magical powers the recipe creator was in possession of to prevent the brownie mix from cementing itself to the cupcake liners, I do know that I most assuredly do not possess those same magical powers. The below recipe has been modified from its original version, after two trips to the grocery store and numerous “trial runs” where we baked a single brownie at a time.
You’ll need: 1 box of brownie mix + 1 package of oreo’s + peanut butter (about 1/2 a tub, depending on how heavy-handed you are with this ingredient) + lots of PAM + cupcake trays
