I was trying to brainstorm  ideas for a dessert to bring to a party. I had a bag of peanut butter pieces and wanted to somehow incorporate these into the dessert. After searching around, I finally decided on mini peanut butter brownies. I think any dessert in mini form is perfect for a party and who doesn’t like chocolate/peanut butter combo?!

From bakedperfection.com:

Makes 40 brownies

  • 1 box of your favorite brownie mix (I used Ghirardelli brownie mix)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease 40 mini-muffin cups.
  2. Prepare boxed brownie mix as directed. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups (about 1 heaping teaspoon).
  3. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet.
  4. After brownies are out of the oven, wait for centers to fall. This will happen upon cooling. If not then tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
  5. Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds then stir.
  6. While brownies are still warm spoon about half a teaspoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie.
  7. Top with semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Cool completely in pan.
