Baking For Justin - Peanut Butter Chip Brownie Cups

We're going to staying with the boys tomorrow night while Jen and John have their first ever overnight get-a-away since Jacob was born. I always enjoy surprising Justin with homebaked goodies because he enjoys getting them form me and eating them so much. Today I baked up these delights to bring with me. Recipe is included. They are really good. Definiate kid and adult pleasers.

PB Chip Brownie Cups

1 cup (2 cubes) butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa or Dutch Processed Cocoa
1 3/4 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups (10 ounce package) peanut butter chips, divided

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 18 muffin cups (2 1/2 inches in diameter) with paper or foil baking cups.

Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; beat well. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat well. Stir in 1 1/3 cups peanut butter chips. Divide batter evenly into muffin cups; sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup peanut butter chips.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until surface is firm; cool completely in pan on wire rack.

Yield: 18
