Peanut Butter Cake Brownies WITH Reese Cup Minis!

I love Reese Cups, so when Reese came out with Reese Cup Minis I had to figure out a way to use them in a recipe.  After much experimentation, my daughter and I came up with this scrumptious  recipe.  Peanut Butter Cake Brownies with Reese Cup Minis.  They were a huge hit with my family, so I thought I would share.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cake Brownies with Reese Minis:

2/3 cups salted butter, softened

2/3 cups Jif Creamy Peanut Butter

1 cup pure cane granulated sugar (Domino is my favorite)

1 cup pure cane light brown sugar (again, Domino is my favorite)

4 eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking powder (Aluminum–Free Rumford is my favorite)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/2  8-ounce packages of Reese Minis Peanut Butter Cups (12 ounces)

Instructions for Peanut Butter Cake Brownies with Reese Minis:

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add vanilla.

Peanut Butter Cake Brownies DoughCombine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and sea salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.

Peanut Butter Cake Brownies: Fold in Reese Cup MinisNow for the yummy part…gently fold in the Reese Minis.  Try not to drool too much here.  This is why we didn’t use the whole bag of Minis.  We only used half of the second bag so we would have something to tie us over till the brownies are done, so hang in there.

Peanut Butter Cake Brownies Dough in Baking DishSpread mixture into a greased 13 by 9 inch baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Peanut Butter Cake Brownies Baked and CooledCool on wire rack.  Cut into squares and enjoy.  I know I did!
