i heart ... peanut butter brownie cupcakes

i love paula deen!
every recipe of hers that i've tried
i've loved.
(except for one, if i'm being totally honest.
but even that one i liked! i just didn't love it)

i made these paula deen cupcakes on saturday
and as expected,
i loved them!
and they are super easy!

peanut butter brownie cupcakes

one 18 1/2 oz. package duncan hines chewy fudge brownie mix

one 12 oz. package peanut butter chips


24 miniature reese's peanut butter cups

duncan hines milk chocolate frosting

1) preheat oven to 350 degrees. line 24 regular muffin cups with paper cupcake liners.

2) prepare brownies according to package directions for "cake like brownies". fill cups 1/2 full with batter. place 1 tablespoon of peanut butter chips in center of batter,


press one peanut butter cup into center until batter meets top of peanut butter cup.

3) bake 18 minutes, or until cupcakes are set. when you can handle cupcakes safely, remove them from tins and cool completely on wire racks.

*i used reese's peanut butter cups since they are my favorite candy.
**this recipe only actually made 17 cupcakes, not 24 as advertised!
