  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 (11-ounce) bag peanut butter cups, chopped
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, whisking until combined. Add vanilla and salt and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and cocoa powder. Slowly add to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the chopped peanut butter cups.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.

  • For extra peanut butter flavor, you can add a few tablespoons of peanut butter to the brownie batter.
