Peanut Butter Brownie Bites Recipe

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites Recipe

I used to make these brownie bites with a cherry in the center. Then I discovered that my granddaughter Lily is big on peanut butter, so I switched it up. Now she loves to help me make them. —Donna McGinnis, Taylor Ridge, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:42 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13x9-inch pan size)
  • Frosting:
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 teaspoons 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chopped salted peanuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 42 mini-muffin cups with paper or foil liners.
  • 2. Prepare brownie mix batter according to package directions. Fill prepared cups two-thirds full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (do not overbake).
  • 3. Place pans on wire racks. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2-in.-deep indentation in the center of each brownie. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans.
  • 4. For frosting, in a large bowl, beat peanut butter and cream cheese until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Spoon or pipe frosting into indentations. If desired, sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
