Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cupcakes
The name pretty much says it all for these. Brownies+mini reese’s cup+cupcake papers=yum. I haven’t made these in forever and decided to bring them back to the kitchen last week. I made them for hub’s study group. They had about 3 of them, so in to work with hubs they went. (Soon, I can take things in with me!! )
I love this treat. It is beyond easy—the hardest part is unwrapping all of the peanut butter cups and trying not to eat them all!
This is the only thing that I use a box for. That is what the recipe called for and it is so good that I never bothered to change it. Because you bake them cake-like, they are thick and more like a cupcake. I used a big scoop to fill the cups about 3/4 full. A peanut butter cup goes in and they go in the oven to bake for about 20 minutes. Let them cool and see how long you can wait before tearing into these!
Need a treat to take in to work or school and have no time or want to make something—make this! All you have to do is mix some brownies and and a candy. Doesn’t get much easier. You could sub all kinds of candy or even flavored chips. It will be sure to be a hit! Enjoy!!
Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cupcakes (recipe adapted from food network)
1 package chewy fudge brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines)
24 miniature peanut butter cups
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 regular muffin cups with paper cupcake liners.
Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Fill the cups half full with brownie batter. Press 1 peanut butter cup into the batter in each muffin cup until the batter meets the top edge of the peanut butter cup.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the cupcakes are set. When they can be handled safely, remove them from the muffin tins and let cool completely on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
