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!

How to Make Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cupcakes

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.
  9. Enjoy with family and friends!!
