While I always love a baking challenge, I am even more impressed when I come across a recipe that is truly decadent and simple! These “one bowl wonders” are a perfect dessert when you’re short on time, but want to make something impressive. They’re a chocolate and peanut butter lovers heaven!

As always, gather all of the ingredients together.
In a microwave-safe bowl place 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon of water.
Place in microwave for 1 minute, until the butter is melted.
Add 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and mix until they are completely melted.
Stir in 1 large egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Then stir in 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt. Mix until just incorporated.
Finally, mix in 1/2 cup peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Place a scoop full of batter into a mini muffin pan that has been sprayed with PAM.
Bake for 11-12 minutes at 350 degree F until the tops are set and a toothpick comes out just slightly wet.
As the brownies begin to cool, they will fall in the center. If not, tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole.
Place 3/4 cup of peanut butter in microwave for 45 seconds to melt. Place a spoonful of peanut butter to fill the hole in the brownie center. Garnish all of the brownies with both 1/3 cup of peanut butter chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
