Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

Does this look familiar? It might, because I actually posted this last year. I made these the other night and decided to take some better (read: non-iPhone) pictures of them, so I'm reposting! 

The next time you go to small group, choir practice, your kids sports game, teacher appreciation day, the family BBQ, a bridal shower, the neighbors house...take these with you! You can make them in less than 30 minutes!


Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

1 box chocolate brownie mix
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup of chips of some kind - I used dark chocolate

Heat oven to 350.

Prepare brownie mix according to box directions.

Scoop into muffin tins (mine are silicone - they come out much easier). For one box of brownie mix you'll get between 12 and 18 cups. Next time I make these I'll divide just into 12 cups.
*Note, if you don't have enough to fill a second pan, fill the empty cups with some water to ensure even baking for that pan. Or at least, that's what Mom always does so I do it too.

Bake for about 18=20 min's, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a brownie comes out mostly clean, but still a little wet.

Wait for the centers to fall. If they don't (and most of mine didn't) just use the back of a teaspoon and make yourself a small hole (don't go all the way through the brownie).

Microwave your peanut butter for 45 seconds. Stir. Place a heaping tablespoon into the center of each brownie.

Are you drooling yet?

Next, I placed 3 large dark chocolate chips in the center of each brownie.

Let cool COMPLETELY on a wire rack. If they aren't completely cooled they will fall apart!
