Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Okay, I've been told that there's a theme to my baking...peanut butter. I have to admit that is true. Peanut butter is probably my favorite ingredient to use in desserts. Just about everything tastes better with peanut butter. However, after this recipe I am going to try to broaden my horizons and NOT use peanut butter for a while. Although, I promised someone I'd make them a frozen peanut butter pie soon, but that doesn't count.

Anyway, I was asked to make a dessert for our ward linger longer yesterday. I wanted to do something yummy, but I wanted it to be kind of quick and easy since I just got back from vacation and my house was still a disaster! I found these little gems on one of my favorite food blogs, The Girl Who Ate Everything. They were super easy and "SEW TASTY"!!! This was totally a cheater recipe since I didn't have to hardly actually MAKE anything.

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

1 box of your favorite brownie mix
1/4 c. water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. powdered sugar
garnish: peanut butter chips and chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin pan with liners and set aside. In large bowl, combine brownie mix, water, oil and eggs until well incorporated. Drop about 1T. batter into each liner and bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Using a measuring teaspoon make an indentation in the top of each brownie bite. Microwate peanut butter for 30-45 seconds until warm and smooth. Add powdered sugar and stir until combined. Fill each brownie indentation with the peanut butter mixture and top with chocolate and peanut butter chips.

P.S. I had to make a little more of the peanut butter mixture, because I like mine a little full!
