Brownie Peanut Butter Cups

This dessert is one of my daughter’s all time favorites. It’s really easy to make, using a boxed mix and canned frosting. Incorporating the peanut butter cup inside the brownie is a really delicious surprise. Give this a try….I am sure you will love this too!

1 19.5-oz. Box Brownie Mix (Betty Crocker, Chocolate Fudge)
½ Cup Oil, ¼ Cup Water & 2 Eggs (Package Ingredients)
Miniature Peanut Butter Cups (Reeses)
1 16-oz. Can Frosting (Betty Crocker, Dark Chocolate Fudge)
Chopped Peanuts for garnish

In a large mixing bowl, prepare the brownie mix per package directions. Line a mini muffin pan with paper liners. Pour the brownie mixture into the muffin pan, to the top of each liner. Bake as directed on the package (do not overcook). Remove the cooked brownies from the oven, and place an unwrapped mini peanut butter cup into the center of each brownie. Let cool. When completely cool, decorate the top of each brownie with the fudge frosting. I generally use a large Ziploc bag, making a small cut in one of the corners for piping the icing. You can top the icing with chopped peanuts for garnishment (and also to let your guests know that the dessert contains peanuts). This dessert can be made a couple of weeks in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
