INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup or honey
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the peanut butter balls first. Beat together the peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more peanut butter if too dry or more powdered sugar if too sticky. Roll into 3/4 inch balls, making about 36. Set aside.
  2. To make the brownie bites, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 3 mini muffin pans well. Whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in the cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Divide the batter into muffin tins, filling them 2/3 full. You should have enough batter for 36 brownie bites.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few crumbs. Remove from the oven and immediately press a peanut butter ball into each brownie bite. Allow them to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. For the chocolate drizzle, combine melted butter, cocoa powder, corn syrup, powdered sugar, and milk or cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir together and microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir again. Drizzle the warm glaze over the cooled brownie bites. The glaze will set as it cools.
