Bastard Brownies: Dastardly Delicious

By now you know about, ahem, so-called "slutty brownies." I think Jessica Simpson was all about them when she was preggers or something? Anyhow, I finally decided to avoid doing any real work this afternoon by making some of my own. Also, I changed the name to Bastard Brownies because I think women get the shaft in that there are too many crappy names for us and not enough for men. (I would've called these Asshole Brownies, but the imagery...just wasn't right.)

The basics are the same for any Bastard Brownie you want to make:

• Press readymade chocolate chip cookie dough into the bottom of greased muffin tins
(I used tinfoil cupcake papers)
• Add your favorite candy item
(I used chocolate covered pretzels, for my husband, and peanut butter chips, for me)
• Top with a couple dollops of whipped-up boxed brownie mix so the tins are about 3/4 of the way full
(I nearly topped them off completely because I'm excessive like that)
• Bake at 350 for around 20 minutes
(I did 22 and they were perfecto-chewy)

The result: A surprisingly not-overpoweringly sweet (plus a little salty because of the pretzel) treat that will get me many brownie points (har har) with the husband later tonight. He is going to die of them.
