Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes Recipe
Last month I attended a fun event with my friend Andrea, called You, Me, and a Cupcake. Everyone was asked to bring at least six cupcakes to share with others. It was a great way to mingle, listen to a testimonial, and the best part—eat cupcakes!
I decided to make some coconut flour cupcakes that were gluten-free. Sadly, no one really touched them, ha! My friend, on the other hand, was smart and brought peanut butter brownie cupcakes. They were absolutely to-die for—rich, creamy, and moist. I just had to know how she made them, so I asked.
These sumptuous peanut butter brownie cupcakes are incredibly simple to make, and they will knock your socks off. Don't expect to have any cupcakes left over, once you bite into these moist and creamy brownie cupcakes you won't be able to stop!
Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes
(makes approx. 2 dozen cupcakes)
- 1 box of brownie mix (your favorite one!)
- 1–2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin pans with liners.
Prepare the boxed brownie mix as directed. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups (about 1/4 cup), and bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set. You want to be able to insert a toothpick into the center and have it come out slightly wet.
After your brownies are out of the oven, tap the centers with the back of a spoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
Place about 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave it on high for about 45 seconds, and stir. While brownies are still warm spoon about a tablespoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie.
Top with your chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, and allow to cool in the pan.
