Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Brownies

I went to Target the day after Easter, not realizing that it was the day after and all of the Easter candy would be on clearance.  Naturally I had to buy a few bags, including this delicious looking bag of peanut butter cups.

My heart and my stomach told me to eat them all right away, but my mind took over and I ended up letting them sit in a cupboard for a week.  I decided to take them out yesterday and throw them into a small batch of fudge brownies.  Seriously delicious and very easy – here’s a recipe for you.  🙂

I like this recipe especially because its not a particularly large number of brownies so I don’t find myself stuffing my face for days.  If you need more you can always double the recipe and use a large baking dish.

And that’s it.  So simple and I still have enough mini cups left over to make another batch if I want to (if I don’t eat them first.)  And I’m sorry these pictures suck.  I thought my point-and-shoot was better than it is.  It was a good camera at one point, and its sad that it can no longer stand up and that my iPhone photos are better.  Boo.  It really makes me sad and I can’t afford a real camera at this point.  I’m not even going to watermark most of these – if you want to say they’re your photos, well, I can point you to a thousand photos that are better elsewhere to take.

Hope you like em.  And the brownies too.
