Blog Tailgate Party: Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

This article may contain affiliate links which support this site at no cost to you.

Today is my birthday so I thought I'd post a sweet treat for tailgating.  These are the perfect take anywhere, blow everyone's socks off dessert.  I took them to a Labor Day picnic and they very quickly disappeared.  As an added bonus, these are made with 100% whole wheat flour! That's my kind of brownie.

The original recipe says to bake for 20-25 minutes, but mine were overdone at 15.  So I put 8 minutes — just keep checking.  These are very “thin” in the cups, but they are very rich so it really is the perfect size.
