  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, combine granulated sugar, softened butter, and water. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds or until the butter is melted.
  3. Stir in 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Add the egg and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  4. Add the flour and baking soda, stirring until combined. Allow the batter to cool to room temperature.
  5. Stir in 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  6. Spoon the batter evenly into Reynolds Staybrite muffin cups.
  7. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the top is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly wet.
  8. Once out of the oven, wait for the centers to fall. If not, tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
  9. Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds, then stir. While the brownies are still warm, spoon about a tablespoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie.
  10. Top with the remaining 1/3 cup of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  11. Cool completely in the pan. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator. To reheat, microwave for 10-15 seconds.
