I have tempting words for you today...


Peanut Butter...

Cupcakes! (imagine I said that in a Chairman voice from Iron Chef and you'll get the idea)

Oh yes you heard me: Chocolate brownie cupcakes with mini peanut butter cups.

I'm sure many of has have our versions of cupcakes stuffed with little candy pieces, but just stick with me. For me, nothing melts me better then chocolate and peanut butter coming together. Its pure perfection, horrendously heavenly, simply sublime...oh sweet, sweet synergized seduction! Enough alliteration, I give you these:

You'll be happy to know that these are super simple! Take your easy, pre-packaged brownie mix (I'm sorry for those of you the make homemade food, kudos to you). And get your mini-peanut butter cups. Lucky for me, these fun colored peanut butter cups were on sale because of Easter.

Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cups

What you'll need:
Packaged brownie mix (I used Pillsbury double chocolate brownies)
1 Egg
Mini peanut butter cups

Mix together your cake mixture, oil, water and your egg (follow the directions on the box). Fill your lined cupcake pan about half way of the mix. Jiggle it a little to get the bubbles out. Insert one (1) mini peanut butter cup per cupcake. Lightly cover the peanut butter cup with the remaining mixture.

Be careful not follow the timing that says on the box because chances are that time will be too long. I left mine in for about 20 minutes, but checked on them a couple of times with a toothpick. When the toothpick comes out clean, your cupcakes are done (just don't poke too far in because then you'll hit the peanut butter and it for sure will not come out clean). Let them sit for a few minutes, remove them from the pan and let them sit more to cool. I made 12 cupcakes with one box.

Ok so go wipe the drool away and go make them - you know you want to! Thanks for reading!
