Wow, these were good. There really isn’t anything muffiney about them except for the fact that they are shaped like muffins. They are really an insanely delicious brownie which I am now dreaming about. I want to make them again with toffee and chocolate chips in them instead of the peanut butter cups and, of course, I will keep you posted.
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
10 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
10 ounces mini peanut butter cups, cut into quarters plus more for topping (cut in half), someone commented on the original post saying they used the mini peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s and those would be perfect for this recipe, no chopping
1 Heat oven to 350. Line muffin tins with foil or paper liners.
2 Melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Let cool slightly.
3 Whisk in eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Fold in flour just until incorporated then stir in quartered peanut butter cups.
4 Scoop into prepared pan (these don’t rise very much so fill 3/4 full). Top with halved peanut butter cups.
5 Bake 30 – 40 minutes or until set.
Yield: about 18 or so
