peanut butter brownie cups

There are times when I don’t do homemade. Call it too busy, lazy, or being a mama- there are times when I whip up a box of something.

But… that doesn’t mean I can’t add my own “stuff” to it.

Take for instance, these peanut butter brownie cups:

I my lazy butt wanted brownies, but I didn’t feel like melting chocolate. Good thing I had a box-o-brownie-mix.

The peanut butter filling is a knockoff of the Reeses’ one in the peanut butter cups. Salty-sweet.Oh yeah! I love me some salty-sweet-chocolate stuff.

Paired with a cold glass of soy-almond-hemp-rice-cow beverage…. and you’re all set for a few moments of “oooo, yum, mmm”

To make these all by yourself, or with the help of what ever kitchen helper is around, all you have to do is prepare brownies according to package directions, and instead of placing the batter in a pan, place it in a muffin tin. Use liners. Silicone ones if you have them. Then, add a dollop of the peanut butter mixture right in the center.

It’s that easy.

It’s okay to be lazy sometimes.  In fact, it’s fun.

It’s also okay to eat brownies for lunch sometimes.

Just don’t tell your mom. 😉
