My new foodie friend, Mrs. Blimes, told me I have to make these as part of my Fat Fest. They did not disappoint. All I have to say is W-O-W! If you are chocolate-peanut butter purest like me you will love these. I couldn’t even wait until they were cooled to eat them. These are DANGEROUS! You could even cheat and use a brownie mix and I am sure they would be great!

1/2cuppeanut butter chips plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
1/2cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
3/4cupcreamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray or grease 12 muffin cups. *Or you can opt to do mini-muffin bites and cook around 8 minutes or until center comes out clean with a toothpick test.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar, butter, and water. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir in 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Stir in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour and baking soda, stirring until blended. Allow to cool to room temperature. Then, stir in 1/2 cup each peanut butter chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Spoon batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into muffin cups.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly wet. Place pan on wire rack. Centers of brownies will fall upon cooling. If not, tap centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole.
Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds, then stir. While brownies are still hot, spoon about a tablespoon of peanut butter into the center of each brownie. Top with semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Cool completely in pan.
