Day 5: Sinful Reese Peanut-butter Brownies

I didn't bake cookies today, the kids wanted brownies so instead of a cookie bake day I came up with these!
  flour, vanilla, Hersey cocoa powder, sugar, eggs, and Reese Mini Cups
you will also need some Peanut-butter candy melts
 unwrap the mini cups and cut them in halves
 once the brownie has cooled melt your peanut-butter candy melts and spread a thick coating over brownies
 scatter your mini cups all over
 drizzle with chocolate
 wallah you just made sinful Reese peanut-butter brownies--->Happy Baking :)
