Peanut Butter Filled Brownies

So last minute Andrew & I went to a crawfish boil on St. Patrick’s Day. It was actually Andrew’s brother Jeff & his wife Lisa’s wedding anniversary party.

Nonetheless, I just HAD to bring a dessert. Since this was so last minute I didn’t even have time to go to the grocery store and get supplies! I was left to create something with only what I already had at the house (which was not a lot at this time!) So I found this recipe on Pinterest of course, and you can find the original recipe here. In the original recipe they used regular peanut butter, but since I was doing this for St. Paddy’s Day, I used green food coloring to dye the peanut butter green! You could dye it any color you like or just leave it. I had some shamrock shaped cupcake pans so I started out using those and then I realized that you couldn’t even tell the shape so I just switched to regular cupcake pans.

What You’ll Need:
-1 box of your fav brownie mix. (I always used BC with the hershey’s packet)
-Creamy peanut butter
-Food coloring (optional)
-Cupcake pan

Directions:
-Preheat oven to whatever brownie box says (I can’t remember off the top of my head)
-Make brownie mix according to box instructions
-Place a couple tablespoons of peanut butter in a small bowl
-Add food coloring of your choice to peanut butter and mix it until all the peanut butter is colored
-Drop about a tablespoon (maybe a little more) of brownie batter into the bottom of each cupcake hole in the pan.
-Drop a small amount of peanut butter on top of each of the brownie batter
-Cover the peanut butter with another spoonful of brownie batter (The peanut butter should be sandwiched between the brownie batter.
-Bake for about 20 minutes (A toothpick should come out clean)
-Let cool completely before removing
