This easy recipe for fudgy peanut butter cup brownies is a peanut butter lovers dream! Using a boxed mix, topped with peanut butter swirls, and extra peanut butter cups yields a crowd-pleasing peanut butter brownie recipe your whole family will love.
Once I realized how delicious brownies with Andes mints melted on top could be, I knew I needed to give peanut butter cups a try. I present to you the Peanut Butter Cup Brownie!
Arguably my favorite of all treats, a basic peanut butter cup is as good as it gets, in my opinion.
I know Reese’s tends to hold the top spot for most popular peanut butter cup, but you’ll see below I used ALDI’s peanut butter cups to top these brownies. If you’ve never tried them, they’re delicious. (And they’re unwrapped, so less fuss when making this recipe.)
(I’ll also let you in on another secret. Skinnydipped has a low-sugar peanut butter cup that I eat almost daily; it’s SO good! Maybe the next variation on this candy-topped-brownie theme should be a sugar-free brownie topped with sugar-free peanut butter cups. Whatcha think?)
What makes these peanut butter cup brownies so exceptionally easy is, of course, the use of a boxed brownie mix. As I said in this Mint Brownie Recipe…
… one of THE best brownie mixes I’ve ever tried is this King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free Brownie mix. If you see it at your grocer, grab it. Gluten-free or not, it’s delicious.
(If you prefer to make your own homemade brownie batter to start this recipe, I recommend this “So Good Brownies” recipe by SouthernLiving.com.)
Any good brownie recipe or boxed brownie mix will work here. I tested an ALDI mix this time, and I think they’re wonderful. If you try that mix or another, let me know what you think! ~Regan
