Peanut Butter Brownies

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 T water
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup peanut butter chips plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Preparing the brownies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease 12 muffin cups.

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 semisweet 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 semisweet chocolate chips. Spoon batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into muffin cups.

Bake for 13 to 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 semisweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Cool completely in pan.

Makes 1 dozen
