Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Brownies, Oh My!

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Brownie

Remember, how I’ve been saying I was going to make my husband’s and son’s favorites for Valentine’s Day? Well, I decided to make an over the top treat for my son that included all of his favorite flavors in every single bite he took. I made Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Brownies.

Umm, yeah. I did.

Besides sounding like the longest name in all the land, the name really is just the beginning of the goodness.


Okay, so let’s just get down to business. Shall we?

First, I made our favorite brownie recipe and tweaked it just a little bit.

I scooped the brownie dough into my muffin tin and then gently pressed it down to form a crust in the muffin tin.




Next, I added a scoop of our favorite chocolate chip cookie dough into the center of the brownie crust and then baked them for about 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted came out with just a bit of crumbs.

When I took them out of the oven, I let them cool down for about 2 minutes and then ran a knife around the edges of the muffin tin to help them release. I turned them out carefully onto a parchment lined cooling rack and then plopped one of the adorable heart peanut butter cups I found at the grocery store on top.

And then the clouds opened above, the birds sang the most beautiful tune, and my baby boy who wasn’t feeling well at all gave me the biggest grin I’d seen in three days. Well, at least the smiling part is true.

I think he’s going to love my idea to make everyday Valentine’s Day, don’t y’all?

Maybe tomorrow’s creation will involve some broccoli and carrots.






Happy Valentine’s Day!

Robyn xoxo

      You are soooo right. And when you throw a little chocolate chip cookie in there, it takes it to a whole new level of yum!

    Oooh. I’m so intrigued. I think I gained 5 pounds just looking at it.

    It wouldn’t be so bad if I could eat just one, but I’m afraid I couldn’t stop with this recipe. It’s really the best of 3 worlds.

    OH MY GOODNESS. i saw these this morning and decided i need to make them immediately!!! i didn’t have any peanut butter cups or chocolate chips so i just used peanut butter chips in the cookie dough instead. they have a couple more minutes in the oven but just by the spoonfuls (and spoonfuls) of batter and dough i consumed i know these will be DEVINE. you have some serious skill, sister!
