Ingredients

3/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
butter, softened
1 Tbsp
water
3/4 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1
egg
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
milk chocolate chips
1/3 c
milk chocolate chips (for topping)
1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips (for topping)
3/4 c
peanut butter, creamy

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease 12 standard muffin cups. Set aside.
2In a microwave safe bowl, combine sugar, butter and water. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir in 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted.
3Stir in egg and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda; stir until blended. Allow to cool to room temperature (won't take long. You don't want the next chips to melt).
4Stir in 1/2 cup each of the milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin cups.
5Bake for 14 - 15 minutes or until tops are set but a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out still slightly wet. Place pan on cooling rack. The centers will fall upon cooling.
6Place peanut butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for about 45 seconds. Spoon 1 Tablespoon into the center of each brownie. Use all the peanut butter.
7Top each brownie with 2 or 3 of each milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Cool completely. Remove from pan.
