No time to bake? No problem! Try this trick: Pulse a box of premade mini brownies in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Then add 3 Tbs. of butter and microwave them for 30 seconds. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a paper-lined muffin pan to create a chocolate brownie shell—which can be filled with ice cream, fruit or our favorite, peanut butter!
Here's our full "Reese’s cup" recipe:
1 box (11 oz.) mini brownies, like Entenmann’s Little Bites
7 Tbs. salted butter, divided
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, like Skippy
1 3/4 cups *powdered sugar *
1 bar (4 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, like Ghirardelli, melted
In food processor, pulse mini brownies 5 times, or until fine crumbs form. In microwave-safe bowl, microwave 3 Tbs. butter 30 sec., or until melted. Stir in brownie crumbs.
Press crumb mixture into bottom and up sides of paper-lined 9-well muffin pan. Chill 15 min. Meanwhile, in clean food processor, pulse peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar and remaining butter 5 times. Add 2 Tbs. water. Pulse 2 times or until combined.
Divide peanut butter mixture evenly among prepared brownie cups; gently press to smooth top. Divide melted chocolate evenly among cups. Garnish with peanuts, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.
