Reviews for Peanut Butter-Filled Brownie Cupcakes
"These look amazing and I was all in until I got to the cream cheese ingredient. Was wondering if I could sub the cream cheese filling for a mixture of peanut butter and powdered sugar. Any thoughts?"
"Even when I made a mistake these were great! The first time I made these I forgot to add the sugar to the cream cheese mix. No one could tell! I now make them the correct way. When I make them I use a full/family size brownie box and double the cream cheese filling. The end result is a total of 30 cupcakes. This is the kind of recipe that the most difficult part is waiting for them to cool"
"My diet-conscious son ate two!"
"Delicious! & I love that you are from Chambersburg!(where I was born & my grandparents live)"
"Everytime (which has been many) I make these delicious cupcakes I am asked for the incredible recipe."
