I had an epiphany the other day.
If you can stuff a cookie, surely you can stuff a brownie…stuffed brownies…Right?! Absolutely!
So, in my favorite apron, I decided to find the best chewy brownie recipe I could find and stuff it with one of my absolute favorite things…mini Reese’s peanut butter cups!
Well, my hubby isn’t usually a huge fan of peanut butter but he deemed these scrumptious brownie bites “to die for” good. So, I guess that means I get to make them again, LOL
Because I seriously thought these were going to fabulous (which they totally are!) I made a double bath for a total of 24 brownie bites. I used my regular sized muffin (cupcake) pans to to get the desired effect.
Here y’all go, I hope you make them and enjoy them as much as we did!
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened to room temperature
- 2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 24 mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
Preheat your oven to 350º F and grease your muffin pans with shortening. Set aside.
In a large bowl,combine your flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine.
In another large bowl or stand mixer, add your butter and sugar. Cream until fluffy. Add in your vanilla extract and eggs. Mix until completely combined.
Slowly add in your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and using a wooden spoon (this helps make chewy brownies), mix completely.
Take your pans and a kitchen spoon (small cereal spoon) and scoop a heaping amount of batter into your muffin cups. Make sure to cover the entire bottom of the cup with batter. Fill all of the cups this way.
* Now add your unwrapped mini Reese’s peanut butter cups to the middle of each muffin cup. Going back over your muffin cups with a large dollop of brownie batter to cover the peanut butter cup.
If measured correctly, you will have enough batter to fill and cover for 24 brownie bites.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the side of the brownie comes out clean. If you test the brownies, make sure to stay away from the middle where the peanut butter cup is.
Let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!
* Do not push the peanut butter cup too far down, it will then stick to the pan and the brownie will tear and fall apart. Don’t ask me how I know this, lol
