I've never been one to pass up a good peanut butter/chocolate combo -- my homemade buckeyes are a tailgating and holiday staple! In fact, they were the inspiration behind these ah-mazing peanut butter brownie cups that I developed for the Reese's Baking Bracket Challenge.
Sweet and salty, creamy and decadent, these peanut butter brownie cups are the perfect treat to savor with a big, cold glass of milk while cheering on your favorite college basketball team in their end of season tournament. Plus, the personal cup size makes them super easy to serve... Double bonus!
I started by making my favorite brownie batter and spooning about 2 tablespoons of it into each cup of a muffin tin lined with foil baking cups. I used my medium cookie scoop for this part, and it was the perfect size. You can also substitute your favorite store-bought brownie mix for this step -- no shame in that!
For the peanut butter layer, I mixed together softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, Reese's creamy peanut butter and a touch of pure vanilla extract. Using my small cookie scoop, I placed a heaping tablespoon-sized dollop on top of the brownie batter in each cup.
I finished off these peanut butter brownie cups with a drizzle of chocolate ganache and some coarsely chopped REESE'S(R) Peanut Butter Cups. To. Die. For!
