These pretty cups make for a great Valentine’s dessert! Red Velvet jazzed up just a bit makes these cake cups wonderfully delicious!!

Red Velvet seems to be one of those flavors so many people just love! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, right?

But, Red Velvet and cherry? It’s the same as chocolate and cherry, so why not? The two flavors are delicious together! Red Velvet is of course all the rage right now with Valentine’s Day coming up in a few weeks. So enjoy. :)

Keep in mind you can serve this dessert like I did as cake cups, regular cake, or of course cupcakes. Plenty of options, all of which would be excellent!

Often times on Monday I like to start the week out with a simple, easy recipe that you can just kind of roll into the week with.

This post is one of those fun ideas, for when you want to make something quick and easy for your kids, co-workers, or anyone at all.

So, during one of my usual Target trips I saw Cotton Candy Cookie Mix. My boys love Cotton Candy, and the price was right, so we gave it a try.

Cotton Candy cookies? Who would’ve thought? Cotton Candy is NOT my flavor of choice for anything! So, I was all ready NOT to like these cookies. But I have to say, I was quite pleasantly surprised. :)

Keep reading and I will tell you more…

Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups

I think it’s safe to say that almost every Mom does some sort of Brownie and Oreo combination. Really, I think it just depends on what your kids, or your friends and family like, right?

Like most kids my boys love brownies, and they love Oreos. The only thing they love more is brownies and Oreos together!

This really isn’t a true “recipe” rather it is more of semi-homemade concept, that can be changed and modified numerous different ways. Just use whatever flavor Oreos your family likes, make your changes from there and enjoy!

With these Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups I like to stack two in a disposable cup, put a small dollop of regular white frosting on top of the second one (or the top one), garnish with a some coarsely chopped Oreos, and add more sprinkles if desired.

Why the plastic cup? They’re easy to transport that way if you’re bringing them somewhere, and if you’re serving them at home they’re easy to serve and eat that way. Of course you would remove the cupcake liners before you assembled the cups.

I have to say Oreos have come a long way. There are so many really good flavors to choose from these days!

To make the Brownie Cups perfect for any time of year, simply swap the Oreos with a different flavor and the sky is the limit. :)

Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups 

Makes 16 brownies, or 8 cups.

INGREDIENTS

1 box (regular size) Brownie Mix and ingredients called for on back of package

Birthday Oreos, Golden Birthday Oreos, or any other flavor of Oreos you prefer

Frosting of choice

Sprinkles

A few Oreos for garnish

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees, or temp. called for on back of brownie box. Line cupcake pans with paper liners, and spray lightly with non-stick spray.

2. Prepare brownie mix according to instructions on back of box. Place about 1 Tablespoon of brownie batter in bottom of each muffin cup. Place Oreo on top of brownie batter (use any Oreo you like) and continue filling as you normally would for a brownie cupcake.

3. Bake as you normally would. After brownies are completely cooled, peel of paper liners, stack two in a cup, frost and decorate as desired.

Megamommy Notes: 

* During the warm months I don’t like to use Buttercream Frosting for the Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups. We’re usually outside with the kids whenever we have a get-together where these Birthday Oreo Brownie Cups would be enjoyed.

It doesn’t take much heat at for Buttercream frosting to start to break down and look very unappealing, not to mention possibly get someone sick. I’m just saying… This treat needs to be refrigerated until served.  

 Happy Baking! :)

Okay, I think by now everyone in the baking-world has made Peanut Butter Cookie Cups, Blossoms, (or whatever you call them in your neck of the woods), many times. They are after all a very good, go-to cookie!

I’m not claiming to have come up with the original recipe, not at all! Today’s post is about how great this recipe is for a middle of the week go-to recipe. We all have busy days, and busy weeks. That’s just how life seems to be these days. When it’s the middle of the week, the last thing a lot of people have time for is baking.

These little treats are quick and easy, and people always seem to enjoy them so!

Here at the house of Megamommy we make these kind of often as a mid-week treat. These are especially great with a quick & easy meal like soup & salad, or sandwiches and fruit. Then at the end of the meal you can enjoy two or three, or maybe even more. :)

They are so easy, so simple and so good! The best part is anyone can bring them in a lunch to school, to work, or just about anywhere, without needing anything special to eat them.

Play around with these and see what flavors your family likes!

Mini Cookie Cups (Peanut Butter or any flavor)

INGREDIENTS

1 package (17 1/2 ounces) peanut butter cookie mix, or any flavor you prefer

24-36 miniature peanut butter cups (regular or white chocolate), unwrapped

(FYI – You can get 36 out of the recipe if you try hard – I seem to only get 24, but that’s fine with me.)

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease one miniature muffin pan (24-count)

2. Prepare cookie mix according to instructions. Roll the dough into 1-in. balls, or scoop into balls with a small scoop. Place in greased miniature muffin cups. Press dough evenly onto bottom and up sides of each cup.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until set. Immediately place a peanut butter cup in each cup; press down gently. Cool for at least 15 minutes; carefully remove from pans.

MM TIP: We frequently make different versions of these.Peanut Butter is always good, but so is Chocolate Chip, or any other flavor your family likes. Chocolate Cookie Cups with a Cookies & Cream center is also a big hit with kids!
