Desert Queen / Dessert Queen

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.
