Pinterest is going to be the downfall of my diet! That an my 6 year old having a day off from school. Who can say no when your little boy asks if you will make him treats? I know I can’t! You want candy? No! You want Mommies homemade treats? Anytime! So, the other day he didn’t have school, and we were spending the day together. The afternoon rolls around and he asks if I can bake something. He isn’t sure what he wants, just that is has to be chocolate (boy after my heart).
I turned on the computer so we could browse through Pinterest for an idea. I had pinned something called Peanut Butter Cup Brownies, they immediately caught his attention. Unfortunately when I clicked on it, it only took me to the picture, not the recipe! I need to check my links before I repin! So I had to improvise. They look almost like the picture, and they are very tasty, so I will consider it a win.
1 recipe of your favorite brownie batter (box mix is fine! Need a recipe, click here)
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (mix of Peanut Butter and Choc would be good too)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini muffin tins very well.
Fill muffin tins with brownie batter. Bake for 10 minutes. The centers should cave in a little once you remove from the oven. Allow to cool completely.
Mix together peanut butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fill center of brownies with 1 heaping teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture. Top with a few chocolate chips.
Makes approx. 36 mini brownie bites.
