Since Halloween’s almost here, store shelves are piled with cheap candy. So dammit, go for that bag of Reese’s miniature cups because you can use them to make, as one of my friends said, a “f*ckin’ delicious” dessert. Imagine personal-sized brownies, each with a peanut butter cup melted into the center. Then top that with a creamy vanilla peanut butter frosting and you’ve got a knock-out treat.
Peanut Butter Brownie
1 box brownie mix and whatever other ingredients it requires
1 bag Reese’s miniature peanut butter cups
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 container vanilla frosting (Betty Crocker or Pillsbury)
Follow the brownie batter instructions. Line muffin tin with individual wrappers and pour in batter so each one is half-full.
Unwrap peanut butter cups and place one in the middle of each cup of batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes but use a toothpick to check for doneness.
In a separate bowl, gently swirl peanut butter and vanilla frosting together (over-mixing will make it hard).
Once brownies are done, let cool for at least 15 minutes. Spread frosting on top and serve!
