These heavenly bite-size Peanut Butter Brownie Cups by Adam Merrin and Ryan Alvarez are easy and fun to make. The secret technique here is to use a cupcake pan, which gives them more crispy-chewy edges than a traditional square brownie. The fudgy chocolate chip-filled batter puffs up as it cooks, leaving a small crater in the middle of each one, which is then filled with warm, melted peanut butter that oozes into every nook and cranny, before being topped with semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips that slowly melt into the creamy center. This is an easy dessert to serve since the brownies are the perfect portion size with no cutting required. These luxurious baked treats are best hot and fresh from the oven, irresistibly melty and gooey. With a crunchy top and creamy center, these moist and chewy peanut butter brownies are pure peanut butter chocolate perfection.
