PB Cup Surprise!

PB cup surpriseYou and friends will be pleasantly surprised when what looks like an ordinary brownie bite has a Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup hiding inside! Did you know that just ONE regular Reese’s PB Cup has 105 calories and 6.5g fat? One of these has less cals, less fat, AND it’s a brownie!

    Number of Servings: 50


              50 mini muffin liners
              1 cup all-purpose flour
              1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
              1/4 teaspoon baking soda
              3/4 teaspoon salt
              3/4 cup white sugar
              2 tablespoons butter
              3 tablespoons each vegetable oil & water
              1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
              3 eggs
              3/4 tsp vanilla extract
            50 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups


I suggest unwrapping the Reese’s cups before you get started :) OR, you can substitute the mini PB cups for whatever tickles yours fancy…raspberries, caramel squares, Hershey Kisses (or hugs!) you name it!


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). IMPORTANT: Line with mini liners and spray with baking grease.
2. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
3. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, vegetable oil and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined.
4. Place unwrapped Mini PB Cups right-side-up in LINED muffin tins. Place a teaspoon or so of batter over each PB Cup so that the batter is level. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Do not over bake! Cool for 10 minutes and use a slender knife or spoon to pop the brownies out, and pop in your mouth!
