brownie

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

filling

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Instructions
 

  • Place rack in the center of oven then preheat to 350 degrees. Coat muffin tin with non-stick baking spray or arrange cupcake liners then set aside.
  • Add melted butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl then stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla then mix until completely incorporated.
  • Sift cocoa, flour, salt and baking soda into bowl containing the wet ingredients then fold until completely combined.
  • Divide batter equally into each muffin cup, filling each one slightly less than ½ full. Bake 12–14 minutes or until barely done or even slightly underdone in the center. Remove from oven then let cool for 5 minutes.
  • While brownies cool, stir together peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to press a 1" round indentation into the center of each brownie. The indentation should be just big enough to hold about 1 tsp of the peanut butter mixture.
  • Fill each indentation with an equal amount (about 1 generous tsp) of peanut butter filling. Sprinkle the top of the brownie with semi-sweet and peanut butter chips and return to the oven for about 2 minutes, just to melt the chips a bit. Don’t worry if you’ve turned the oven off, it just needs to be warm.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely before removing from the pan.

Aside from cookie dough, there is noting I crave more than a yummy chocolate and peanut butter dessert!
