Reese's peanut butter cups stuffed inside soft, chewy brownies. Top the brownies with this unbelievable peanut butter frosting!
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the brownie mix, egg, cream cheese and butter until it is well mixed. Spread the batter in a greased 8x8 pan. Take the frozen Reese's peanut butter cups and press them into the brownie batter in a 4x4 grid pattern. They should be pressed in enough that the top of the Reese's cup is at the same height as the brownie batter.
Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 28 minutes.
While the brownies are baking, make the peanut butter frosting. Using a stand mixer, blend together peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter, and milk 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
Once the brownies are cool, spread the frosting on top of the brownies. Melt 2 blocks of Candiquik in a microwave safe bowl according to the package directions. Drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter frosting and allow the brownies to set.
Make 1/2 a recipe of peanut butter frosting if you want a thinner frosting layer.
