Want a Vitamix of your own? You do. Seriously. Trust me. Enter the Rafflecopter below the recipe, by following me on social media and commenting (I’ll check at the end of the giveaway). This giveaway is open only to residents of the lower 48 United States and the District of Columbia.
- 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- One large pinch kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 16 miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×9 baking pan with foil or parchment, leaving an overhang so you can easily lift the giant brownie out later.
- Set up a double boiler: Add a few inches of water to a medium saucepan. Place saucepan on stove over medium heat so it’s just barely simmering. Rest a heatproof bowl (or second saucepan) over saucepan. Add butter, sugar, cocoa powder and salt to bowl; heat over medium heat until butter has melted, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
- Pour cocoa mixture into blender. Add vanilla and one egg; blend on low speed until combined. Add second egg; blend on low speed until combined. Add flour; blend until all flour is incorporated, and batter is smooth and shiny.
- Spread batter in prepared pan. Press peanut butter cups into batter, in four rows of four.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted between peanut butter cups comes out almost clean (I like to underbake brownies just a little). Cool completely, then lift out of pan and cut into 16 squares.

Disclosure: I received an OXO Good Brownie Tool set, including a brownie spatula, measuring cups, measuring spoons, and a silicone pastry brush, at no charge. I was invited to help spread the word about this great cause by sharing a favorite brownie recipe. I was not compensated for writing this post, and all opinions are my own.
