A preferred amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips

A sufficient quantity of peanut butter chip morsels

1 box of premium brownie mix

¼ cup of creamy peanut butter


Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Grease a cupcake pan, with 12 cups or a mini muffin tin.

Follow the instructions provided on the box of brownie mix to prepare the batter.

Evenly distribute the prepared brownie batter into the pan maintaining consistency by using an ice cream scoop.

Place the filled pan into the oven. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. To check if they’re done use a cake tester or toothpick – it should come out mostly clean.

After baking allow some time for the brownies to cool down slightly. Then gently press down with a spoon in each center to create wells.

Microwave peanut butter for 30 seconds until it becomes smooth. Stir well. Spoon an amount into each indentation of the brownies.

Sprinkle chocolate and peanut butter chips on top of every brownie.

Let the brownies cool inside their pan before transferring them onto a wire rack for cooling.

Enjoy your Peanut Butter Cup Brownies or store them in an airtight container, for later consumption.


To transform these scrumptious Peanut Butter Cup Brownies into a gluten-free delight, it’s all about swapping a few key ingredients while keeping the soul of the recipe intact. Start by choosing a gluten-free brownie mix; there are many fantastic options out there that offer the same rich, chocolatey goodness as traditional mixes. Next, ensure your peanut butter is labeled gluten-free, as some brands may contain additives or be processed in facilities with gluten-containing products. For the chocolate and peanut butter chips, a quick label check will help you find gluten-free varieties.
