How to Make Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease the muffin pan with a good non-stick baking spray.

Step 1. Mix the brownies

Start by preparing the brownie mix according to the directions on the box. Use your favorite brand of brownie mix.

If you want to make the brownies extra rich, go with dark chocolate. For extra peanut butter flavor add peanut butter chips.

For more chocolate flavor add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Whatever you decide, this brownie recipe is so yummy!

Step 2. Cut the cookie dough

Next up, cut the cookie dough into 12 pieces – try not to eat any! 🙂

Tips For Making Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Here are a few tips for the best peanut butter cup brownie bites:

  • Make sure your non-stick baking spray has flour in it. This really helps prevent sticking.
  • Spray each muffin section individually before adding the batter.
  • Don’t overfill the muffin tin. Be sure to only add the brownie batter to about 2/3 of the way full. A cookie scoop helps with this.
  • Let the brownies cool completely before trying to remove them. It will be hard to resist, but you don’t want to risk these yummy treats falling apart.
