Pin a Day: Brownie Peanut Butter Cups

Another part of lazy Sunday was baking.  I tried out these Brownie Peanut Butter Cups.  They were super yummy and fairly easy to eat.  I did make one alteration in using dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet chocolate chips.  The other thing I changed was using muffin cup liners instead of greasing the muffin tin.  I hate greasing muffin tins and the liner makes them a little more portable.  One nice thing about this recipe was that it only makes a dozen cups so I didn't have to worry about a ton of leftovers.  First, I made the brownie batter and let it cool.  This is important so the chips don't melt whenyou mix them in.  Next, I added the chips and baked the brownie cups.  After they baked, I melted peanut butter, put that and more chips on top, and let them cool.  Last night after dinner, we finally got to try them.  They were pretty dense, but delicious.  These required an accompanying glass of milk and will easily enforce portion control because they are so rich.  This is definitely a great treat for any chocolate and peanut butter lover.
