Peanut Butter Brownies (Muffin Tin Technique)

Is there anything better than chocolate and peanut butter? These peanut butter brownies can be easily made in a muffin tin, and are baked in less than 15-minutes!

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup regular butter, softened
  • 1 TB water
  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, for melting
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips + 1/3 cups for garnish
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Line muffin pan with liners.  Spray liners with oil.
  2. In large glass bowl, combine sugar, butter, and water, and microwave until butter is melted (about 1 min).
    Stir in 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips until melted.  Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
  3. In separate bowl, mix flour and baking soda to combine.  Add flour mixture to melted chocolate mixture, stirring until blended.  Stir in 1/2 cup peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips.  Spoon batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into liners.
  4. Bake 13 minutes, or until top looks set, but toothpick inserted in center comes out somewhat wet (it will set up once cooled.)  Place muffin pan on wire rack for 5-10 minutes, to allow centers to fall upon cooling.  If centers don’t fall, tap centers gently to make a hole.
  5. While brownies are still hot, place peanut butter in microwave for 45 seconds and stir.  Spoon about a tablespoon of peanut butter into each brownie center.  Decorate with semi sweet chocolate chips.  Allow to set a little and enjoy!
