  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • Line bottom of 13 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment, and spray sides with non-stick spray. Then preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Melt butter in microwave, and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • In small mixing bowl, whisk eggs and vanilla until frothy.
  • In medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk in melted butter, and then whisk in egg mixture. Fold flour in, and mix just until completely incorporated.
  • Spread ¾ of batter in bottom of prepared pan, and arrange peanut butter cups evenly in batter. Top peanut butter cups with remaining batter, and smooth to completely cover.
