If you’re a lover of all things chocolate and peanut butter combined, you’re going to love these peanut butter chip brownie cupcakes.  This is a homemade chocolate brownie (a really good brownie recipe, by the way), and it’s packed with those delicious peanut butter chips.

For more chocolate peanut butter effect, additional peanut butter chips are sprinkled on top.  This adds to the visual appeal of this dessert, but it also adds an additional punch of peanut butter to the brownie cupcakes too!

Baking these brownie cupcakes in a muffin pan makes them an easy dessert to make for a party or to bring to a potluck.  When they’re made in a muffin pan, they’re so easy to grab and go.  And display of this treat is easy when they’re baked in cupcake wrappers too.

Just peel away the cupcake wrapper, and your peanut butter chip brownie cupcakes are ready to eat.  A lot of people like to hold the wrapper in their hand and just take small nibbles of the cupcake.  This makes for clean eating since your hands don’t get all messy holding the actual brownie!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cups peanut butter chips (10-ounce package), divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 18 muffin cups with paper or foil bake cups.

  2. Place the butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs and mix well. Add the cocoa; whisk until well-blended. Add the flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Stir in 1 1/3 cups peanut butter chips. Divide the batter evenly into muffin cups (I like to use a spring scoop for ease in getting it in there!); sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup peanut butter chips.

  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until the surface of the cupcakes is firm; cool completely in the pan on wire rack, then pop them out of the cupcake tin and store in a covered container.
