Fudgy Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Pin It
Just a quick note before I get to the recipe today. I love reading your comments, and I truly appreciate you taking the time to leave them! I like to respond personally to every comment via email. If you have not received an email from me it's because I have no way of contacting you. Please check your settings and be sure your email is visible. I love meeting new friends and getting to chat with you. :)

So, I have been blogging here for just a few weeks and I am already bringing you anther brownie recipe. And, yep, you guessed it, they're fudgy!  Can you tell I have a soft spot for these things? Even as a kid I would request brownies instead of birthday cake. They are my favorite :)
These are so easy to make it's almost embarrassing. And *bonus* they are out of this world delicious!






How could they not be? They are chock full of peanut butter cups. I know chocolate and peanut butter is not a new idea, but I thought I'd better post this in case you haven't tried this variation.  Your welcome.

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped peanut butter cups

Preheat oven to 350*
In a large glass bowl melt the butter and mix in cocoa powder until smooth. Stir in sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix in the flour until the batter is smooth then stir in half of the chocolate chips and 1 cup of the peanut butter cups. Spread into a well greased 9x13" pan. Sprinkle remaining chips and peanut butter cups on top. Bake 20-25 minutes being careful not to over bake. Store in a tightly covered container.
