Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

This recipe worked great when I needed a quick dessert to share with someone.

Makes 40 brownies 

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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease 40 mini-muffin cups.

Prepare boxed brownie mix as directed. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups (about 1 heaping teaspoon). Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet. 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.

Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds then stir. 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.

My comments:
* I got this off Pinterest.
*I used what I had on hand...a brownie mix that was for an 8 x 8. So I just reduced the other amounts.


  1. Those sound absolutely decadent. I don't know whether to thank you or scold you-lol xo Diana

  2. I just loaded up with packages of Brownie mixes from Big Lots! Perfect timing to read this post!

  3. Yum! I'm going to try these. I want to access your Pinterest Board. Will you invite me?
