Over the summer I was sitting through an incredibly boring workshop and met Cali from Home Awaits. She has a great blog full of pictures of homes to dream about… which is exactly what she’s doing! While clicking through, I found her recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Brownies. Can you really ask for anything better? I made a few changes to her recipe, and they were fabulous!
What you’ll need:
*1 box of your favorite brownie mix
*1/2 cup chocolate chips
*3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray or line 40 mini-muffin cups or 20 muffin cups (I used the regular size because I don’t have minis. Besides, then you don’t have to eat 4 to get your brownie fix).
2. Prepare the box mix as directed. Spoon into muffin cups. Cook until a toothpick comes out slightly wet when stuck in the center. For the minis it’s 13-15 minutes and for the full size it’s 20-22 minutes.
3. After the brownies begin to cool, the centers will fall. If they don’t, take a spoon and scoop out a little of the brownie to make a hole for the peanut butter mixture (I might have eaten all of the centers I scooped out).
4. Put the peanut butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 25 seconds and stir. Continue heating in 25 second increments until smooth. Spoon into the centers of your brownies. Top with chocolate chips. Let cool in the pan.
Yum. Chocolately-Peanut Buttery Goodness.
