Brownie Cupcakes with Reese's Peanut Butter Chips & Fluff


FOOD FRIDAY. YAY.

So I'm finally finally back with a proper recipe. And it's a good'un.  Obviously at the weekend I spent my time at the cottage, which you can read all about here, and we were lucky enough to be sent a whole range of treats from Candy Hero*. They set us a task of making a recipe with Reese's Peanut Butter Chips and Fluff. American treats of course, so I came up with the idea to make Brownie Cupcakes. That way we were all able to make our own cupcakes and decorate them as we wished!

So here is the delicious, mouthwatering recipe we used to make our cupcakes.

Ingredients:
185g Unsalted Butter
185g Dark Chocolate
85g Plain Flour
40g Cocoa Powder
3 Large Eggs
275g Golden Caster Sugar

1 Large Packet Reese's Peanut Butter Chips (283g)
1 Jar of Fluff

Method:

  1. Cut the butter into smallish cubes and put into a medium sized bowl. Break the chocolate into pieces and put in the bowl. Place this over a pan of simmering water and stir until it has all melted.
  2. Wait for the chocolate to cool, preheat the oven to 160C. Tip the flour and cocoa powder into a sieve over a bowl, shake it until it has all sieved through.
  3. Break 3 large eggs into a large bowl and tip in the sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy. 
  4. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse, then gently fold together with a rubber spatula. Use a figure of eight action to ensure it is all folded in and you get round the sides.
  5. Resift the cocoa and flour mixture into the eggy chocolate mixture and gently fold this in using a figure of eight action again. It will become very fudgy and much thicker. Stir in the Reese's Peanut Butter Chips until their dotted throughout.

  6. Pour the mixture into the cupcake cases and level out the top. Put in the oven for 25 minutes and check with a skewer to make sure it is done.
  7. Leave them to cool, then add a layer of fluff in the place of icing and add the sprinkles of your choice. I used these confetti sprinkles from Lakeland that I had lying around and these cases from Hobbycraft.
Some of the best brownies I've ever tasted! I love the Reese's Peanut Butter Chips with the chocolate brownie mixture! Plus the Fluff on top tastes so much better than you would expect it to!




A massive thank you to Candy Hero for supplying some of the ingredients and setting the challenge. What should I make next?!
