Peanut Butter Chip Brownie Cups


Don't count this recipe out just because I accidentally overbaked these for Life Group last night (sorry). A subsequent batch (and a more watchful eye) has proved that these can be super yummy!

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups (10 oz.) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line approximately 15 muffin cups with paper or foil baking cups.

Place butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted. Combine with sugar and vanilla. Add eggs and beat well. Add cocoa and beat well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat all ingredients until well blended. Stir in 1 1/3 cups peanut butter chips. Set 1/3 of the chips aside. Divide batter evenly into muffin cups.* Sprinkle with remaining chips. Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface is firm. Cool completely in pan or on wire rack.

Makes approximately 15-16 brownie cups.

*I used a mini ice cream scoop and I used a little more than 1.5 scoops per muffin cup.
