Easy Peanut Butter Brownies

September 5, 2008 at 6:05 pm Leave a comment

It’s Friday, and after a long week of work I needed some serious dessert…but I also wasn’t in the mood to really bake, if you know what I mean. These brownies are so simple, yet so rich and fabulous. Coffee or milk are definitely suggested!

1 box brownie mix – plus ingredients called for on box
About 20 mini peanut butter cups, wrappers removed.

Prepare the brownie mix according to directions and bake in an 8×8 pan for the allotted amount of time, minus 3 minutes. When they are just about done, take them out of the oven and press the peanut butter cups GENTLY into the brownies, just below the top. Put back in the over for about 2-3 minutes until the chocolate has melted. Using a spatula, spread out the melted cups to form a frosting. Let cool and serve.

*Tip for easy removal of brownies: Cut a piece of parchment paper or foil. It needs to be about twice the length of the pan you will be using. Place the paper/foil in the pan, and press up the sides. There should be extra paper/foil hanging off the edges. This is good! Spray with non-stick spray and put in the brownie mixture. Once the brownies are done, they can easily be lifted with the “handles” out of the pan. Works everytime!
