I love the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate together.  When I saw Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups at Trader Joe’s (TJ’s), I had to buy them!  Then I had fun incorporating them in some easy baking projects. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

  1. Peanut Butter Cup Brownie – Very easy!  I mixed up a batch of brownie mix.  Then chopped up some TJ’s peanut butter cups and pressed them into the top of the batter.  Bake as directed.
  2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups – I made a batch of peanut butter cookie dough.  I pressed a ball of dough into a mini-muffin tin and used the Pamper Chef Mini Tart Scraper to make an indention and placed the peanut butter cup in the center.  Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until the cookie is golden.
  3. PB&J Cookies – I had leftover peanut butter cookie dough, so I rolled small balls of dough, flattened them and made a small well using a measuring teaspoon.  I spooned some grape jelly into the well.  Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until the cookie is golden.

And there you have it!
