There really is no better combination than the classic dark chocolate and peanut butter! These classic Bettie’s Brownie’s are chock-full with vegan dark chocolate natural peanut butter cups, topped with chopped peanuts, flaked sea salt, and swirled natural peanut butter. Let’s get baking!
Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
Peanut butter and dark chocolate are one of those classic combinations that I feel are almost part of the fabric of our society. I’d equate it to cookies and ice cream cake or pancakes and maple syrup: it’s just meant to be.
I was browsing Instagram and saw a post by Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for brownies that had their cups just stuck into the batter. It looked tasty, but it got me thinking that these brownies could be even more than just cups and fudgy brownies. And since this is Dolled Up Desserts, we need to take the combination to the perfect extreme.
Behold our Salted PB Cup Brownies.
Our signature gluten free and vegan Bettie’s Brownie with salted and crunchy peanut butter cups chopped into the batter, topped with a swirl of peanut butter, more chopped peanuts, and Maldon sea sat.
And as always, these brownies are completely inclusive to those who do not eat gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, and are vegan. If you are peanut free, you could easily swap the nuts for another almond or seed butter- I could imagine almond butter or hazelnut butter would be absolutely decadent (Nutella brownies anyone?).
I think we outdid Reese on this one. What do you think? Leave a comment below!
