Romeo & Juliet.
Salt & Pepper.
Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy.
Spaghetti & Meatballs.
Some things are just meant to go together. Like Chocolate & Peanut Butter.
Can I get a witness?
And what better way to celebrate this celebrity food pairing than to make Peanut Butter Cup Brownies!
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownies (Print recipe)
makes 16 brownies
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/8 tsp. salt
8 or more Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray an 8x8 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Melt butter (I melt mine in the microwave) & stir in cocoa. Set aside.
In medium bowl beat eggs until frothy. Add sugar, flour, chocolate chips, & salt. Don't stir yet. Pour cocoa mixture over top & stir all together.
Scrape half of the brownie batter into the pan. Top with the peanut butter cups.
Then top the peanut butter cups with the rest of the brownie batter.
Bake for 30 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes before frosting.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cup icing sugar (also known as confectioner's sugar)
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. milk
Cream the butter & peanut butter together. Beat in the vanilla. Stir in the icing sugar, cocoa, salt & milk. If it's still too thick, add more milk 1 Tbsp. at a time until it is a nice smooth, spreadable consistency.
Frost the brownies.
Wouldn't these make a great Valentine's treat?
Nothing says "I love you" like some yummy chocolate treats. :)
