Another one of my P.M.S cures

These might look a tad bit familiar. Last month I made a delicious P.M.S cure cookie.
This is another take on that ever so popular Reese’s Cup Peanut Butter Cookie.
However this time it is in a bite sized brownie. I actually had 2 packages of those mini Reese’s cup baking pieces in the pantry that I have been wanting to use. I was a little disappointed in them though. They are very cute itty bitty Reese’s Cups( about the size of a pencil eraser), But I wasnt satisified with them in flavor. The amount of peanut butter in them was minuscule. So I decided to just chop up my own Miniature Reese’s cups. It was my husbands idea for the bite sized brownies(kudos to him). They are soooooooooo yummy. Again the universe unites with Chocolate and Peanut butter. Seriously folks…can it get any better than that? Ok, maybe the $30 million lottery! But hell hasn’t frozen over quite I am going to stick with the brownies!!!


1 1/4 cup cake flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
6 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
12 Tbsp(1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
20 Miniature Reece’s cups unwrapped and chopped, plus extra for topping if you wish

5.Gradually whisk in sugar to chocolate and butter mixture.
6.Add eggs one at a time, whisking after each one until thoroughly combined. align=
7.Whisk in vanilla
8. Add flour mixture in 3 additions, folding with rubber spatula until batter is completely smooth.
9.Fold in Reece’s pieces

Spoon mixture into mini muffin tins by the heaping tablespoon full and top with extra chopped up Reece’s pieces if you wish.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Let rest in pan for about 5 minutes before cooling on wire rack.
Makes about 50

    This might cure many diseases, it looks fabulous! Peanut Butter cups have bben my favorite since I was a child. I’m sure I would have no problem eating at least five in one sitting.

    the good (and bad) thing about bite-sized brownies is that you can eat a bunch and not feel guilty! i agree wholeheartedly about the reese’s baking bits–completely unsatisfactory. you know, i might begin to look forward to pms if i have these little delights to soothe me… 🙂

    Those look delicious! If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, they make the BEST mini peanut-butter cups. I put them in my last batch of brownies and they were incredible.
