It's cold in Missouri, and I'm certainly not the queen of any desert. I wilt in the heat.
However, I did make some kick-butt desserts for the Monday meal exchange at work.
First up we have Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites
Oh yes. Sinful. Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Brownie
Let me share the recipe...which I found, um, somewhere on the internet.
I forgot where. Sorry.
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 40 (ish) Reeses Mini Cups, unwrapped (I ended up using 48)
Spray mini muffin pan with nonstick spray. In bowl, cream butter, sugar, & vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Gradually add flour, cocoa, and salt. Mix until combined.
Fill each muffin cup with batter--slightly more than 1/2 but not more than 2/3 full. Place Reeses Cup in each slot, pressing down until almost level with batter. (note: try not to have the Reeses Cup touch the metal bottom--it made it harder to remove)
Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes before removing from cupcake tin...but don't let sit too long. They might stick!
I also made Mom's German Bundt Cake.
As good as the chocolate pb brownie bites were, Rob (co-worker) proclaimed this cake "EVEN BETTER."
Mom's recipe is a winner!!!
You win Mom!
I would share the recipe here...but I made another one (and froze) to give out at trivia night. I'll share the recipe for that one when I get the basket all made up.
