  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 6 x 42g Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups


  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and line the base and sides of a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper - this will help you to remove the brownies once they are cooked.
  • In a large saucepan (you want it to be big enough to add the extra ingredients to later), melt the butter, cocoa and sugar over a low heat – stirring continuously.
  • Add the vanilla essence and egg - whisking the mixture as you go.
  • Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk to combine.
  • Spoon half the mixture into the cake tin and carefully place 9 Peanut Butter Cups on top.
  • Cut the remaining Peanut Butter Cups into large chunks.
  • Add the remaining brownie mixture to cover the Peanut Butter Cups and sprinkle the cut pieces over the top before placing into the oven to bake for 35 minutes.
  • Allow Brownie to cool in the tin before removing, cut into small pieces - or large pieces - there's not judgement here!
