Who loves peanut butter and chocolate??? Raising my hand high, I DO!! I DO!!! 🙂
With 4th of July upon us, many are preparing for BBQ’s, pool parties, picnics and family outings to celebrate. If you’re looking for a delicious twist on an old-time American classic, the brownie, give these heavenly confections a try! These cupcakes are rich and chocolate-y and are bound to grab some attention! Warning: make sure to have plenty of ice cold milk on hand! 😉
Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcake
1 package chewy fudge brownie mix
1 (12 oz package) peanut butter chips or 24 miniature peanut butter cups
Fudge Topping (I used Mrs. Richardson’s Hot Fudge 🙂 )
Preaheat oven to 350, line 24 regular muffin cups with cupcake liners. Prepare brownie mix according to package for cake-like brownies. Fill the cups 1/2 full with brownie batter. Place about 1 tbsp peanut butter chips in the center of the batter or press 1 peanut butter cup into the batter in each muffin cup until the batter meets the top edge of the peanut butter cup.
Bake 18-20 minutes, until the cupcakes are set. When they can be handled safely, remove them from the muffin tins and let cool completely on wire racks. Spread fudge topping on top.
