King Arthur Flour’s Best Brownies Ever with Mini Peanut Butter Cups

with Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Check out these mini Peanut Butter Cups!

I was hoping since this recipe is printed on the flour bag that I would be able to find it on the King Arthur Flour website.  Well, I did find one that’s almost an exact match with a couple of differences – the title, and the coffee. The flour bag recipe doesn’t call for coffee,so I made mine with out it, but if you like coffee, add it.

I have to agree – these are the best brownies ever!  And, I’ve been baking Brownies for a very long time!  I also really enjoyed using the microwave to melt the butter and having only one bowl to wash.  I used Penzey’s Natural Cocoa Powder and stirred in these mini Peanut Butter Cups I found at Trader Joe’s in place of the Chocolate Chips the recipe calls for.

Fresh from the oven!

The texture, color, and flavor of these Brownies was perfect – and the chocolate and Peanut Butter swirls just take them over the top!  I’m sure to try them with a variety of ingredients, but these will be hard to beat!

    I’m with you, Susan – this is absolutely my favorite brownie recipe, and I make it whenever the chocolate urge strikes. Your addition of those TJ PB cups is pure inspiration – I think I’m going to try them with caramel chips next time… Thanks for highlighting the recipe on your blog!

    What a great idea. I’ve added many special ingredients to brownies but haven’t tried these…I have them…the kiddies love to decorate with them and eat them, of course, but your brownies look great. Thanks for sharing.
