Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Yes, you read the title correctly. My mother-in-law found this recipe and I jumped at the chance to make them for a family party. Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate?

The ingredients include:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups plus 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/3 cups miniature Reese's Peanut Butter cups, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan
  • Add 2 cups sugar and cocoa, stir to blend
  • Remove from heat, add eggs and vanilla extract
  • In another bowl, stir together flour, salt, and baking soda
  • Add flour mixture to chocolate mix
  • Stir in 2/3 cup PB cups
  • Spread out in greased 9x13 pan
  • Combine PB and 2 tbsp sugar
  • Drop dollops of PB on brownie mix and swirl with a butter knife
  • Bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes
  • Cool for 45 minutes, then sprinkle 2/3 cup of PB cups and gently press them into the brownies
  • Let them cool and enjoy!
