Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Happy Friday everyone!  It's time to put the week behind us, and move on to a beautiful weekend!  This recipe is a feature from my link party this week, and they looked so delicious, I had to give them a try!  If you have a family event, a child's play date or just feel like baking something sweet this weekend, you must give these Peanut Butter Cup Brownies from The First Year Blog a try!

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Total Time: 23 min
Prep: 8 min
Cook: 15 min
Yield: 12 brownie cups

1 box of your favorite brownie mix
(Eggs & vegetable oil per brownie mix)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
Cooking spray

1. Preheat the oven to 325°/350° depending on the type of muffin pan you are using.  It will tell you on the back of the brownie box which to use.  Spray a 12-count muffin pan with cooking spray
2. Prepare and bake the brownies as directed.
3. Evenly divide the brownie mix into the coated muffin tin.  (About 3 tablespoons per muffin cup)  Bake the brownies for 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out slightly wet.
4. Allow the brownies to cool for about 5 minutes.  They should each fall slightly in the center.
5. Heat the peanut butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds and stir it well so it turns into a liquid.  Spoon about a teaspoon of the liquid peanut butter into the dip of each brownie cup and top them with a few chocolate chips.  Enjoy!

*Tip:  Beth at The First Year Blog recommends that if the brownies don't fall, just use the back of a tablespoon to make a slight dip in the center.
