Peanut Butter Brownie Cups #ad #SKIPPYYIPPIE

This Peanut Butter Brownie Cups recipe is for all you peanut butter lover’s out there!  And this coupon is for all you peanut butter lover’s who like to save money!  

My daughters and I have been baking up a storm!  It’s one of our Christmas traditions.  We have tried-and-true family favorites that we always make like Russian Tea Cakes and sugar cookies.  My birthday is just a couple of weeks before Christmas and this year I was fortunate enough to have TWO birthday cakes, Snicker Cake and Boston Cream Pie.  Then, 5 batches of Snickerdoodles were baked as gifts. But along with all those wonderful old favorites we decided to try something new, for the peanut butter lover’s in the family….. Peanut Butter Brownie Cups.

They combine the classic tastes of chocolate and peanut butter and are exactly what the name implies, a homemade brownie cup filled with peanut butter.

I used SKIPPY® Natural Peanut Butter.  It’s smooth and creamy and best of all… no stirring!  Right now SKIPPY has a printable COUPON offer!  This isn’t the first time I’ve purchased SKIPPY® Natural Peanut Butter.  The super chunky is my daughter’s favorite for peanut butter toast.  But I digress…

The brownie cups were very easy to make and NO mixer required, so less dishes and easy clean up!  They bake in only about fifteen minutes.  When they come out of the oven the top is “crusty” but the center is hollow.  Using a spoon to break that crust gives you the perfect little “cubby” to fill with peanut butter.  As an added garnish I sprinkled with mini chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.  Peanut butter chips could be used or chopped peanut butter chocolate cup candies would be good.  

The recipe only makes 12 so if you are having a bigger crowd (or you just anticipate loving them) I’d recommend making 2 batches.  It wouldn’t take but a couple of extra minutes.  We took them to church for our fellowship lunch and they were a big hit!  

Here’s the Recipe: 

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 3/4 cup chocolate chips – divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup SKIPPY® Natural Peanut Butter
  • Optional Garnish:
  • butterscotch chips
  • mini chocolate chips
  • peanut butter chips
  • chopped peanut butter cup candies

Allow the batter to sit for a couple of minutes to come to room temp

Add remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed (if batter is too warm they will also melt so let it cool, it doesn’t take long)
