Reese's Brownie Bites

February 20, 2012

I was missing a mini muffin pan from my collection of bakeware, so when it was time to purchase one, I had to put it to good use! I wanted to try to whip up some brownie bites using only a select number of ingredients I had on hand. Luckily I came across a brownie recipe from Hershey's that used the most basic of ingredients. I also had some yummy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on hand, so I decided to throw those into the mix. Feel free to top these little brownie bites with nuts, M&Ms, or whatever other topping you'd like. 

These turned out more like a muffin than a rich brownie, so if you're really looking for a chocolatey flavor, I'd recommend upping the amount of cocoa in the recipe. Enjoy these step-by-step photos and you'll find the easy recipe at the end of the post!

All of your mini brownie ingredients
Stir together butter, vanilla and sugar
Stir until well-combined
Add eggs to your mixture
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt
Slowly add your dry mixture to your liquid mixture
Take out about 10 (or more) miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Place unwrapped peanut butter cups into a plastic bag
Smash the peanut butter cups (I used the end of a rubber spatula)
Fill a mini muffin pan with batter, about 1/2 way full
Top each with some of the crumbled peanut butter cups (or whichever topping you choose!)
Bake about 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes
Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
Mmm morsels of chocolate and peanut butter
