Foodie Goodie | Peanut Butter Cup Brownies.

Sorry for the lack of updates. It's been a crazy, stressful week at school (my little man's school, to be exact) and I just was not in the mood to write for the past couple of days. I'm thankful for the weekend - time off from school, and I get two days to rest at home, update my blog, do the laundry, and watch my favorite Kdramas.

And I can get to experiment in the kitchen, too! Here's another recipe using my all-time favorite spread. And you know I'm talking about peanut butter. :)

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

1 batch brownies batter, made without nuts
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 ounces soft cream cheese
1 large egg
1/4 cup sugar

1. Line 18 to 20 cups of a standard muffin tin with bake cups.
2. Combine the filling ingredients in a medium-size bowl and beat them with an electric mixer until evenly blended. The texture should be like whipped peanut butter. If it's not stiff enough, add some more peanut butter.
3. Fill each muffin cup about halfway with brownie batter.
4. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of peanut butter filling into the center, pushing it down slightly into the batter.
5. Cover the filling with another spoonful of batter, making sure that the cups are no more than about two thirds to three quarters full.
6. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, just until well risen and cracked on top.
7. Transfer the pans to a wire rack and cool for 30 minutes.
8. Remove the brownies from the pan and place them directly on the wire rack. Allow them to cool before serving.
