Peanut Butter Brownies

 This is one of those recipes that is more of a method than a recipe. These filled brownies are amazing. I’ve tried these brownies with Oreos, Rolos, M&M’s, and of course Reeses Peanut Butter cups. They are so easy and I’ve yet to meet someone who wasn’t a fan of these decadent yummies! brownies2

I used my Brownie Pan for this recipe, but I have also used a 9×13 baking dish and it was still yummy, but there is something special about an individual serving! I sprayed my Brownie Pan with cooking spray, but you can also use cupcake liners. (use a round liner- once it is filled with batter, it will conform to the square shape of the pan)  I used a fudge brownie mix. You can make your own brownie batter if you prefer. brownie batter

 Unwrap your Reese’s peanut butter cups. I’ve tried multiple sizes of PB cups with this recipe and this seems to be best size! Who invented these beauties? I’d like to shake their hand!

 Spoon brownie batter into brownie pan, filling 1/4 full, then place Reese’s cup on top of batter face down.

 Spoon brownie batter on top of peanut butter cup making sure not to over fill pan. If you use a family size brownie ix, you should have the perfect amount of batter.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until brownies are cooked through. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.

 Remove from pan and cool on wire rack until completely cool.

 When ready to serve, I like to cut the brownies into triangles. That turns my 12 brownies into 24! And… they are so rich, half a brownie is more than enough! And, if you are mixing up your candy filling, your guests will be able to see what they are getting! I think I’d like to try Almond Joy next! Yum! Stay tuned!
