  • 10 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1/3 cup Cream Cheese
  • ½ cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Whole Milk
  1. Prepare the brownie batter: combine the butter and chocolate together, melt on med-high power in microwave in 25 seconds intervals; stir very well between each interval until completely melted
  2. In larger mixing bowl, combine sugar, salt, eggs, and vanilla extract; whisk together very well
  3. Add melted chocolate/butter mixture to the egg and sugar mixture; whisk to incorporate everything together
  4. Add the sifted flour all at once; blend until just incorporated
  5. Portion the batter into lined muffin cups; fill about 2/3 full
  6. Prepare peanut butter filling: cream the cream cheese smooth; add the sugar and mix until just incorporated
  7. Add the peanut butter and mix until well combined; add the egg; add the milk last
  8. Fill pastry bag with peanut butter filling; squeeze filling into the center of each brownie cupcake batter, pushing it down so it is not sticking out of the batter too much

  10. Frost with a swirl of peanut butter buttercream and fudge icing

One thought on “Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes

  1. These cupcakes! I can’t look away, there’s just too much goodness going on. I’m a huge (and I mean huge) fan of peanut butter, add chocolate (or banana) and I’ll go crazy. I love it haha. That peanut butter core looks insane, excuse me while I note this recipe down. I need to make these at some point.
