These are crazy good, there is just no other way to put it. A rich chocolate brownie, in cupcake form, stuffed with peanut butter cups and peanut butter and topped with peanut butter buttercream frosting. Excessive? Yes. Delicious? Beyond.
The only thing better than a brownie is one that is frosted and stuffed.
Why hello there. Have we met?
Making these decadent treats is easy. It’s the same process that I used for these brownie cupcakes. I freeze my peanut butter cups prior to baking. You can use any brownie mix or recipe you like (or heck, make them as cupcakes with actual cake – it’s all about being flexible!).
I put some brownie batter in each of my cupcake liners, followed by a peanut butter cup and about a spoonful of peanut butter. Then I topped it all with more brownie batter and baked.
After baking and cooling, it’s time for peanut butter buttercream frosting, which might be one of the most wonderful things on earth.
For my frosting, I used the same recipe that I used for my peanut butter ball stuffed cupcakes. You can find it here.
Peanut butter and chocolate really are a match made in dessert Heaven.

There’s no link for the brownie cupcakes to get the recipe for that. Only the frosting 😢

I’m afraid you’ve somehow stumbled upon a 10 year old post from 2012, back when it’s was the blogging wild wild west. I’m slowly working to update these old posts, but it’s slow going! That said, I’m pretty sure I just used a brownie mix to make these, with the big twist being “make them as cupcakes!” so whatever brownie mix, or recipe, you like, would work!
