Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brookies

This quick and easy chocolate dessert is made with just 3 store-bought ingredients plus the egg and oil you need for the brownie batter, and they’re incredibly fun and simple to make in a muffin tin! This is seriously the BEST dessert recipe I’ve ever made. They remind me of a fancy lava cake or mini pizookie served warm with ice cream. It’s basically the marriage of a cookie, brownie, and Reese’s peanut butter cup. How can you go wrong with that? Course: DessertKeyword: best, brownies, chocolate, cookies, dessert, easy, peanut butter servings: 


  • 1 (10oz) bag of brownie mix (plus the oil & egg to make the batter)
  • 1 (16oz) package of refrigerated cookie dough
  • 12 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • vanilla ice cream (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and generously grease a regular size muffin tin.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions; set aside.
  3. Separate the cookie dough into 12 even balls and then squish them down into the bottom of each muffin cup.
  4. Place Reese’s peanut butter cup upside down on top of the cookie dough.
  5. Evenly distribute the brownie batter on top of each peanut butter cup until the wells are about 90% full.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the brownie batter is cooked through.
  7. Allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before removing them from the pan. Enjoy warm with vanilla ice cream!

Recipe Notes

  • Place any leftovers in the microwave for about 30 seconds to reheat.
  • You could also use an Oreo or a couple of caramels in place of the peanut butter cup. What else could you stuff in there?
