PB Oreo Brownie Cupcakes

Okay, Chris saw something like this on Facebook of all places and sent me the picture… an obvious sign that he wanted me to make them lol!  So, I did.

I used a brownie recipe I don’t normally use and while it tastes great, they are “crunchy,” which I don’t like.  Next time I will do this with my usual recipe… but even if they were as hard as concrete… it is PB, Oreos and Chocolate.  Need I say more?



Here are the ingredients I used to make these.  Other than buying a package or Oreos, stuff that most people generally have on hand.


The first thing to do is to smother your Oreos in PB and then place on top of the other…. like this… and look at that!  I can’t count!  There is one extra “set” of PB coated Oreos.  I had to eat those ones.  I didn’t want them to go to waste lol!


Next I mixed up the brownie batter… eggs, sugar, vanilla and melted butter first… then the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.

I poured the brownie batter into my prepared cupcake pan and then smooshed the PB coated Oreos into the batter, PB side down.

Now I baked them for 20 minutes at 375.  I am thinking I probably should have baked them at 350 instead because the edges of them burned a little bit 😦


Now all I had to do was mix up some Chocolate Buttercream Icing and fill my makeshift icing bag to finish them off once they were cooled off.

Makeshift Icing Bag lol


And here is the finished product!  PB Oreo Brownie Cupcakes!
