Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

My book club had it's Christmas party last night!

We had a blast!

We did our Secret Santa gift exchanges, ate lots of yummy finger foods and sat around in our pajamas giggling for about three hours. It was a great way to spend a Wednesday night!

At our last get together, I made book club brownies, but they came out a little.. well done.. So I was a lot more careful this time when I made these incredible Reese's Peanut Butter Cup brownies. I found the recipe on Susannah's Kitchen and it is amazing!!

Trust me, if you love chocolate (who doesn't??), this is for you.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups and 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/3 cups Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups, divided (I just cut up regular Reese's Cups, this works too!)
  • 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

    1. Pre-Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
    2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add 2 cups sugar and cocoa. Gently stir to blend. Remove from heat. Beat eggs, then stir into mixture. Add vanilla extract. Mix together flour, salt and baking soda in separate bowl, and stir into chocolate mixture. Stir in 2/3 cup mini peanut butter cups. Spread chocolate mixture in greased pan.
    3. Combine creamy peanut butter and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Drop by tablespoons onto chocolate batter. Swirl with metal spatula to achieve marbled effect.
    4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until brownie starts to pull from edges of pan. Cool for 45 minutes.
    5. Cut remaining 2/3 cup peanut butter cups in half and sprinkle over the surface. (Press in slightly.) Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.
