Today I want to share the recipe for the best and easiest treat ever. If you like peanut butter and chocolate (and really, who doesn't?) you will want to make it at least once a week...so beware!
Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
Your favorite chocolate brownie mix (my favorite is Ghiradelli Double Chocolate)
Creamy Peanut Butter (preferably Jif or Skippy)
Peanut Butter Chips
I think that these are best if you make them in mini cupcake tins...regular sized ones are a bit too intense for me...but do what you want!
Preheat the oven to 350˚
Follow the directions on the box to make your brownie batter. Fill the cupcake tins (a little more than halfway full).
Put the brownies in the oven for 15 minutes. They should be just barely cooked (if you stick a toothpick into them it should come out a little wet).
While the brownies cool a bit, put some peanut butter into the microwave (start with about a half a cup for 30-45 seconds). Use a spoon to make small dents in the tops of your brownies. Then put a little dollop of peanut butter into the dent. Its taken me a few times to figure how much to put in--it depends on what you like! I usually put in around a quarter tablespoon.
Next, sprinkle both kinds of chips on top. You're done!
I, personally, think that they are even better cold so make sure you stick some in the fridge for later!
