Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

These awesome brownies are a delicious blend of brownies and Reeses cups! I also love making these individual bite-size brownies because it forces me to ration, which isn't my forte!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease 40 mini-muffin cups.
  2. Prepare boxed brownie mix as directed. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups and bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet.
  3. After brownies are out of the oven, wait for centers to fall. This will happen upon cooling. If not then tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
  4. Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds then stir.
  5. While brownies are still warm spoon about half a teaspoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie. Top with semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Cool completely in pan.
