Reese’s Brownies! Just Fricken Awesome!

Oh yeah! You heard me right, Reese’s Brownies, in a cupcake! They are just as good as you would think!


I was Stumbling the web when I found The Crepes of Wrath blog which was doing an article about brownies with York Peppermint patties. Not being too fond of peppermint patties I thought of what I am fond of, and Reese’s’ Peanut Better cup miniatures sprung to mind.

So I set out to make some. I used boxed brownies mainly because the Lions were playing so I didn’t have time to make the from scratch. So it’s pretty easy.
All you need is:

Two boxes of brownie mix. I like Duncan Hines.
12 Reese’s Miniatures
2 six count Cupcake pans or one 12 cpount
Cupcake liners

Mix the brownies according to package directions. You can probably make  18 cupcakes with the two boxes of mix but I only had the two six count pans. So I used up the excess batter in a mini tart pan. It had 12 spaces for 2 inch tarts. You can put the rest in a 9×9 pan or what ever else you might have.

Place a scoop of brownie batter in the cups and squish the peanut butter cups in the batter, just enough to seat them.


Then place 1 and 1/2 scoops on top of the peanut butter cups.


You may need to bang the pans on your table to get the batter to flow around the cups.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Serve with a very large glass of milk and enjoy!

    Hi Chef B,
    Looks like a good recipe to try. I agree, the peppermint patty version doesn’t sound as appealing.

    They really are great. A little rich though, you can’t eat too many. Definitely needs milk or coffee.

    OMG, these look sooo delicious. 2 of my favorites,,,reeses and brownies. I feel a couple pounds coming on with these little babies. Can’t drink milk, don’t like coffee so I wonder how they will be with my beer?

    I use chocolate chip cookie dough for bottom layer, then reese’s cup, add brownie on top. After cooled, I put a dab of frosting and a candy in center of that for show. Yum!
