Reese's Brownies! Just Fricken Awesome!
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 35
  • Servings: 12+
  • Preparation Time: 10
  • Two boxes of brownie mix. I like Duncan Hines.
  • 12 Reese's Miniatures
  • 2 six count Cupcake pans or one 12 count
  • Cupcake liners
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix the brownies according to package directions. You can probably make 18 cupcakes with the two boxes of mix but I only had the two six count pans. So I used up the excess batter in a mini tart pan. It had 12 spaces for 2 inch tarts. You can put the rest in a 9x9 pan or what ever else you might have.
  2. Place a scoop of brownie batter in the cups and squish the peanut butter cups in the batter, just enough to seat them.
  3. Then place 1 and 1/2 scoops on top of the peanut butter cups.
  4. You may need to bang the pans on your table to get the batter to flow around the cups.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Serve with a very large glass of milk and enjoy!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
Oh yeah! You heard me right, Reese's Brownies, in a cupcake! They are just as good as you would think!

Not being too fond of peppermint patties I thought of what I am fond of, and Reese's' Peanut Better cup miniatures sprung to mind. So I set out to make some. I used boxed brownies mainly because the Lions were playing so I didn't have time to make the from scratch. So it's pretty easy. All you need is:
