Peanut Butter Cup Brownies In A Jar

Guest Blog:  The Gunny Sack

image

I made these little beauties for my party and they were delicious!  And besides being adorable, they were easy to make!  They consist of brownies, chocolate frosting, peanut butter cups and peanut butter frosting.

image

I purchased a 12 pack of 4 oz jelly jars and a brownie mix from Walmart.  I made the brownie batter according to the directions on the package.  Then, I greased the bottoms only of the glass jars and set them on a baking sheet.  Next, I added brownie batter to each jar.  I ended up with extra batter so the recipe could actually make more than 12 desserts.

image

I baked the brownies for about 20 minutes at 350°F .  They were gooey when we ate them so if you like your brownies well done, you will want to bake them for longer.

image

Once the brownies were cool, I piped in store bought chocolate frosting.

image

I cut a bunch of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into small chunks…sorry I didn’t count how many but I think you need a little more than 1 peanut butter cup per jar.

image

Just put the peanut butter cup chunks on top of the chocolate frosting.

Peanut Butter Frosting

To make the peanut butter frosting, I mixed together 1 container of store bought vanilla frosting and 1 cup of peanut butter.  Then, I mixed in 1 cup of powdered sugar.  After that I added, 3 tablespoons of half-n-half and beat it until it was creamy.

Peanut Butter Cup Frosting In Jars

I piped the peanut butter frosting on top of the peanut butter cups.

image

The last thing I did was stick 1/4 of a peanut butter cup into the peanut butter frosting.  I stored them in the fridge until I was ready to serve.

These were seriously delicious but very rich.  They were almost too much to eat in one sitting…not because of the size of the jars but because of how sweet they were!

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies In A Jar

Brownies:

1 brownie mix
~ water, eggs and oil that are called for on the box

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Mix up the brownie batter according to the instructions on the box.  Grease the bottoms only of  4 oz jelly jars (I used 12 but had extra batter).  Put about 2 tbsp of brownie batter into each jar.  I used my cookie dough scoop and just eyeballed it.  Place the jars on a cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes for gooey brownies and longer for well done brownies.

Chocolate Layer:

1-16oz container of chocolate frosting

After the brownies have cooled, pipe chocolate frosting into each jar, over the brownies.

Peanut Butter Cup Layer:

About 18 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Cut the peanut butter cups into chunks and place them on top of the chocolate frosting in the jars.

Peanut Butter Frosting:

1-16 oz container of vanilla frosting
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp half-n-half

Mix together the vanilla frosting and peanut butter.  Add the powdered sugar and mix well.  Beat in 3 tbsp half-n-half until smooth and creamy.  Pipe the peanut butter frosting over the peanut butter cups in the jars.

Top each frosting peak with 1/4 of a peanut butter cup and store in the fridge until ready to serve!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Martini

 
Prep time:  5 mins
Total time:  5 mins
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 ounces Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cup Infused Vodka, (recipe below)
  • 4 ounces milk
  • 1 teaspoon Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
  • 4 mini peanut butter Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, for garnish

 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Infused Vodka

  • 6 ounces good quality vodka (I used Tito’s)
  • 1/4 cup Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Instructions:
 
To prepare the infused vodka, combine vodka and Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups in a clean mason jar. Close jar tightly and store in a cool dry place for 7 days. Give it a good shake once or twice per day.
 

Once vodka has been infused, strain into a clean mason jar using a fine mesh sieve or cheese cloth. Store in a cool place or in the freezer.

To prepare the martini, combine infused vodka, Hershey’s chocolate syrup and milk in a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake for 30-40 seconds and pour into two small martini glasses.

Garnish with Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Keep in mind that to make this “candy-like” martini you’ll be infusing your own vodka, so there is a week of planning ahead that you’ll have to do. —It’s totally worth it!
