An old standby

Here's an old standby recipe I made recently that I've made several times by now because it's just so darn easy and a nice twist on a typical from-the-box brownie.

I don't know where the recipe originated as it was given to me by a friend a few years ago, however, I have seen it in several different variations on different websites since, like

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

1 Package brownie mix
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
3 Tablespoon water
1 egg
20 miniature peanut butter cups

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Combine brownie mix, oil, water, and egg in large bowl. Stir 50 strokes w/ a spoon.

Place paper cupcake cups in pan. Fill each cup to about 3/4 full. Then place peanut butter cup in center of each cupcake. Bake 30-35 minutes. Let peanut butter cup cool and re-harden before serving.

Oh my gosh do these ever sound decadent!

And don't worry about the photographs. Everyone has different skills and level of skill (and some of those photographs you and I admire are taken by PROFESSIONALS with PROFESSIONAL equipment).

You have a wonderful blog with delicious recipes. Take pictures! It's another level of blogging fun, and no matter how poor YOU think the picture might be, we, your followers, enjoy seeing them.
