have been making these for years and ALWAYS get rave reviews. I find using foil baking cups works much better than paper liners or spraying your tin directly

Sam's Club Brownie Mix did work great with this recipe. Plus the mini peanut-butter cups are now paperless so you don't have to take off all those wrappers... After they cooled I frosted them to add some extra decorations for the holidays.

An easy and delicious way to combine my favorite culinary combination: chocolate and peanut butter. I use mini muffin pans and mini peanut butter cups.

Baked up a batch early this morning (aroma of them bakin' woke my husband). Batch yielded 3-1/2 dozen. I used mini muffin pan; they turned out perfectly. Thank you for sharing recipe!!

This is so easy, and yet so delicious! I have made them 3 times now. The first time in regular muffin cups, but being a regular cupcake size I felt it was a bit too much for one snack. So I decided to make them in mini-muffins using the new mini peanut butter cups from Reeses. I cooked them at the same temp, just cooked them for 10-13mins until they looked done.

Oh my! What a difference! They are a lot more time consuming, but they are just perfect little bites of brownie goodness! The first time in mini-muffin cups I just tried to grease the pan and not use liners.. not such a good idea, they still stuck like crazy but everyone ate them anyways! The ones I just made today, I used mini-muffin liners and they are so much better! I think next time I may still spritz the liners with cooking spray just to make it even easier to peel and eat them!

These things are fantastic and so so simple.
