Reese’s Stuffed Brownies
Have you tried the Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? They’ve been around for a while and I always have to fight the urge to buy them as I’m checking out my groceries. They are a chocolate lovers dream! Though I love eating them on their own, I wanted to try them in a recipe. I upped the richness factory by 1000, I think! These Reese’s Stuffed Brownies are pure chocolate/peanut butter heaven.
I made the brownie batter from scratch, but if you wanted to save on time, a boxed mix would work too. They look like brownie cupcakes, but inside is a hidden delight: a Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Again, if you can’t find the giant cups where you live, use the regular sized ones.
I was so happy how this recipe turned out. I took a bunch of photos showing what they look like when you break them open inside. Beautiful, mouthwatering and sweet. I need to make more asap!
Reese's Stuffed Brownies
Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are stuffed inside a rich chocolate brownie. Each bite is pure chocolate heaven!
- Cooking spray
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 5 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, cut into chunks
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 12 Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
- In a small saucepan, heat the chocolate, peanut butter and butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat on high speed for 5 minutes. Pour in chocolate and beat on low speed until combined. Beat in flour on low speed until combined.
- Add a tablespoon of brownie batter to each muffin tin. Place a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup on top of each. Slightly press down to embed the peanut butter cup in the batter. Add about a teaspoon of brownie batter on top of each and spread to cover. Your peanut butter cup will now be fully encased inside the brownie.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Let cool in the pan before removing onto a cooling rack.
Time for the close up. Whoa YUM!
This recipe makes 12 cups. They didn’t last long after my daughter and her friends got ahold of them.
