Brownie Muffin (with a twist)

Baked this brownie muffins after finish studying one of my module.. I wanted to take some rest and surf the net for a while, then suddenly craves for some chocolatey stuff.. So I bake these to stop the cravings.. Hehe!

On top of the original recipe, I add in some peanut butter and a piece of mint chocolate.

The interior view of the brownie muffin. The pale brownish stuff is the peanut butter, and some slightly shiny blacky stuff is the melted mint chocolate.

After making the brownie batter, I saw that there's a bottle of peanut butter on the tabletop so I thought, "why not add some in? I'm sure it will be yummy!" And so, I proceed on to add some PB in.. Quite a smart move.. As I really like this little surprise.. hehe!

And as for the mint chocolate, you can sub it with any chocolate you like, I used this because there only a few pcs left, and I thought of finishing it up..
