I have been craving chocolate and peanut butter lately. And there's only one thing that can satisfy that craving - brownies with Reese's peanut butter cups! I found this recipe on Duncan Hines a few years ago and the kids and I love it! I even made it for a church bake sale and it went fast.
The recipe calls for Duncan Hines Double Fudge Decadent Brownie Mix but it wasn't available at the commissary today, so I used this one instead.
And instead of using a muffin pan, I opted to use these aluminum baking cups.
I placed them all on a baking sheet. That way, I got to bake more of them all at the same time.
There is nothing fancy about this treat, but it's guaranteed to satisfy anyone looking for a chocolate and peanut butter fix. Enjoy!
Brownie Candy Cups
1 package Duncan Hines Double Fudge Decadent Brownie Mix
1 large egg
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
30 miniature peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cups in muffin pans.
- Combine brownie mix, fudge packet from mix, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl. Stir with spoon until well blended, about 50 strokes. Place 2 level measuring tablespoons batter in each paper liner.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Push 1 peanut butter cup candy into center of each cupcake until even with surface of brownie. Bake 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.
