whirlwind + peanut butter cup brownies

four more days til the conference, then i'll be back to a regular blogging schedule after that. promise.

until then, i came across this recipe for peanut butter cup brownies and think it sounds absolutely fantastic. it might be the first thing i do after the conference is finished on the 15th.

or maybe it'll be the second thing, after having a big long nap.

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • kosher salt
  • 8 large peanut butter cups, cut into pieces


  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a pan over low heat.
  3. Using a mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until pale yellow and fluffy. Lower speed and pour in the melted chocolate and vanilla. Mix in the flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Fold in the peanut butter cups.
  4. Scrape into a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Bake until the tip of a knife comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
enjoy. and please, if it's before sunday, eat an extra one for me.

ps - i managed to do a little 25-minute belly photoshoot with jess this weekend. it felt a little bit rushed, so i'm going to see how they look after a bit of photoshopping. will keep you posted.

Chocolate and peanut butter = the best food combo of all time. Of all time. Snuck in an overused Kanye joke, yay me. Haha.

Anyway, there's an award waiting for you over on my blog. I really hope you consider taking part in it! :]
