These little chocolate gems are stuffed with peanut butter or caramels. Deliciously rich, they are perfect for any holiday gathering not to mention, they are super easy to make with only 6 ingredients. My family asked for these every year at Christmas; the recipe is also a favorite for school parties during the holidays as they are, easy to make and transport. This is my entry for the Christmas Cookie Classics Contest!

How To Make oreo peanut butter brownie cupcakes

  • Cupcake tin lined with cupcake liners.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  • Prepared brownie mix.
    In a medium mixing bowl, combine brownie with 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and egg until just blended.
  • Oreo placed in cupcake liner.
    Put one Oreo into each cupcake liner.
  • Dollop of peanut butter on top of Oreo cookie.
    Top each cookie with 1 teaspoon peanut butter, Nutella or individual soft caramels.
  • Brownie batter added to cupcake liners.
    Carefully add brownie batter to the top of the liner.
  • Brownie cupcakes baking in the oven.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes, checking for doneness after 15 minutes. The sides will be firm to the touch when done. However, the top will remain soft due to the peanut butter filling.
  • Brownie cupcakes cooling.
    Cool 3-4 minutes in the pan, transfer to a serving plate, allow to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
