I think there are things in life that are meant to go together…peanut butter and jelly, biscuits and gravy, bacon and eggs, salt and pepper, Batman and Robin, Mario and Luigi, cake and ice cream, Jess and Tyler (that’s the hubby for those who don’t know Mr. Plum Adorable’s real name yet) and of course Peanut Butter and Chocolate!! But wait…Peanut Butter and Double Chocolate Brownies with peanut butter chips and chocolate chips sprinkled on top?!? OF COURSE! DESTINY!!
So when I came across this pin on Pinterest… I knew that I would not be disappointed!
Thank you SO MUCH Baked Perfection for sharing this recipe with the world!!!
Like, Baked Perfection, I also took the easier route and did not make my brownies from scratch and chose to make the mini bite size brownies rather than 12 cupcake size brownies.
Here are the ingredients you will need!
Brownie Mix (whatever additional ingredients the box mix requires)
Peanut Butter Chips
Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Crisco or Cooking Spray for your Muffin Pan
Prepare the Brownie mix as directed on your box. Make sure to liberally grease your muffin pan! I have made these about 5 times now and twice have had issues with them getting stuck in the pan. (This tends to happen if they are undercooked and under-greased!) If you are making the mini brownies, cook for about 13-15 minutes and remove when a tooth pick inserted comes out slightly wet. (Erring on the side of a little more done has been better in my experience with them. ) If you are making the full size, I would refer back to Baked Perfection and they’ll refer you back to another site that did the larger brownies!
Once you remove your brownies from the oven, upon cooling the centers are “supposed” to cave in on themselves some creating a small bowl in the center but this has never happened for me in the 5 or 6 times I’ve made them. So while they are still fairly warm, tap the center of each brownie with the end of a spoon to create a crater in the brownie where your peanut butter will sit.
Place peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for 45 seconds seconds and then spoon into the middle of each brownie with a teaspoon while brownies are still warm. Add a couple peanut butter and chocolate chips to each brownie top. Cool completely in pan.
ENJOY! They are seriously SO GOOD!!!
