  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup margarine (or unsalted butter), softened
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1-1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Use cooking spray or butter to prepare a mini muffin pan (24 little cups).
  3. Combine sugar, butter, and water in a large microwave safe bowl.
  4. Cook in microwave until butter is melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  5. Stir in 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted.
  6. Let ingredients cool for 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in egg and vanilla extract.
  8. Add Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and stir just until blended (DO NOT OVER MIX).
  9. Allow all to cool to room temperature.
  10. Stir in 1/2 cup each semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
  11. Spoon batter by heaping tablespoons into mini-muffin cups (cups should be about 3/4 full).
  12. Bake 10-15 minutes or until top is set and toothpick inserted in brownie cup comes out with a few crumbs.
  13. Let brownies cool in pan. The center of the brownies should fall when cooling, if they don't, just give the center a little tap with spoon back and then you'll have a hollow for your filling. While brownies cool, prepare the filling.
  14. Filling: Place peanut butter in small microwave safe bowl and cook in microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Brownies should still be warm.
  15. Spoon 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter into the center of each brownie.
  16. Top with remaining semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
  17. Cool completely in pan and then brownies will lift easily out.
