Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tbsp water
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
In a microwaveable safe bowl, combine the sugar, butter, and water.
Microwave in 45 second increments until butter is melted.
Add in the 1 cup chocolate chips and stir until melted. *If not melting entirely, stick back into microwave for a few seconds.
Stir mixture until completely combined.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
Mix in the flour and baking soda.
Allow batter to cool off slightly, for about 5-10 minutes.
Fold in the milk chocolate chips.
Grease or line a muffin tray and fill each tin with batter, about 3/4 full.
Place muffin tray in a preheated oven, 350, and bake for 14-16 minutes.
Once brownie cups are baked, remove from oven and allow to cool off for about 5 minutes.
If brownie centers do not cave in when cooling, use a tablespoon and gently press into the middle of each cup creating a small divot.
Microwave the peanut butter until creamy and melted.
Pour about 1 tbsp peanut butter into each brownie cup center. Top with additional chocolate chips if desired.
