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

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 325 F
    Place liners in cupcake pan
  • 2On 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.
  • 3In a mixing bowl, melt the cocoa and butter together.
    (This takes about a minute in my microwave)
  • 4Stir in sugar, flour, salt, vanilla extract and eggs, 2 at a time into chocolate mix.
  • 5Fill 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.
  • 6Once you have done this, with the remaining batter, fill the liners the rest of the way. The peanut butter balls should be completely covered.
  • 7Place in oven and bake for about 35 minutes at 325 F. Adjust time as necessary.
  • 8Once done, place on cooling rack.
  • 9Enjoy with family and friends!!
