Brownie Candy Cups

Brownie Candy Cups - brownies with Reese's peanut butter cups in the center.

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.

Brownie Candy Cups - brownies with Reese's peanut butter cups in the center.

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

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cups in muffin pans.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
