My mother's favorite candies are peanut butter cups, so I decided to make a special brownie just for her.

These yummy treats look like regular cupcakes but as soon as you take that first bite, you are in for a creamy surprise!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

8 Tbsp
cocoa powder
8 Tbsp
unsalted butter
2 c
sugar
1 c
flour
1/2 tsp
salt
2 tsp
vanilla extract
4
eggs
peanut butter, creamy or crunchy

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 325 F
Place liners in cupcake pan
2
On a movable surface like a cutting board, wax paper, etc., sprinkle some flour.
With a teaspoon, scoop up a heaping portion of peanut butter and roll it around in the flour. Make 12 of these.
Set aside.
3
In a mixing bowl, melt the cocoa and butter together.
(This takes about a minute in my microwave)
4
Stir in sugar, flour, salt, vanilla extract and eggs, 2 at a time into chocolate mix.
5
Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 of the way full. As you fill each one, place a peanut butter ball in the center. DO NOT push the ball into batter. Simply place in center.
6
Once you have done this, with the remaining batter, fill the liners the rest of the way. The peanut butter balls should be completely covered.
7
Place in oven and bake for about 35 minutes at 325 F. Adjust time as necessary.
8
Once done, place on cooling rack.

Enjoy with family and friends!!
