This combines two great desserts, brownies and peanut butter cups! They are so wonderfully fudgey!!
1 cup unsalted butter
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate squares
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
8 large peanut butter cups
In a double boiler over medium heat add the chocolate broken into pieces and the butter. Stir until melted and remove from heat to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the cooled chocolate and vanilla. Mix in the flour and a dash of salt. Gently stir in chopped peanut butter cups. Scrape the batter into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish that has been buttered. Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into squares.
Yield: 20-24 brownies
