This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brookie Tart is two delicious desserts in one! Decadent fudgy brownies topped with dollops of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough and baked to perfection.
Hey guys! Happy Monday! Did y’all have a nice weekend? I hope yours was better than mine. Mine involved lots of driving, a dog with a cracked, infected tooth and a very expensive vet bill! Wah-wah. Stressful situations call for one thing and one thing only in my book…chocolate. So it was this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brookie Tart to the rescue! It totally did the trick! Well, at least for me, but not for my poor dog Tucker!
So this is how it went down. Everything was fine and dandy one minute and the next minute, I look at our dog Tucker and he has a lump on the side of his face as big as an egg. Like what the? OMG! I was freaking out. He wasn’t whining, or crying, just looking at me with this big old lump on his face! I had no idea what happened. Tucker and I were visiting with my mom who is up from Florida for the summer, so we all hopped in the car to head home so I could get Tucker to the vet. The vet said he had a cracked tooth that was infected and would need to be pulled! Ugh! Poor Tuck! Of course the vet couldn’t pull it on Friday, so she sent us home with antibiotics and pain meds for the weekend for the poor little guy and told us to come back on Tuesday. So tomorrow’s the big day. Hope it goes by quickly and as painlessly as possible!
Now, back to the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brookie Tart. If you love brownies and love peanut butter cookies , you’re going to love this tart. And if you’ve never heard of a brookie, a brookie is a combination of a brownie and a cookie.
