Brownie Peanut Butter Cups

I have made this recipe for years because it's incredibly easy and really delicious.  This is truly a great semi-homemade dessert that your family is sure to enjoy!



1 19.5-oz. Box Brownie Mix (Betty Crocker, Chocolate Fudge)

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.
