These wickedly delicious Peanut Butter Brownies are as easy to make as they are to eat. Each piece is filled and topped with Reese’s peanut butter chocolate treats too.
These Peanut Butter Brownies are very easy to make and adding lots of Reese’s chocolate treats to them, makes them all the better in my opinion. Peanut butter and chocolate go so well together don’t they?
It was actually a warm day when I made these, so I had to pop them in the fridge to stop the chocolate topping from not setting. This is also why the brownies do not look squidgy, but rest assured they were once they were at room temperature.
The brownie makes 9 squares, but as delicious as they are I think a whole square would be too much . Therefore, I would suggest that the brownies are cut in half again to make 18 smaller ones instead.
These Peanut Butter Brownies really are scrumptious! I took some to a friend’s for a coffee afternoon and they were big hit, so much so that one of my friends is waiting for this post to be live so she can make some for herself.
Recipe for Peanut Butter Brownies
- 200g crunchy peanut butter (I used an organic one which did not contain ay added sugar)
- 300g milk chocolate
- 200g caster sugar
- 3 medium eggs
- 100g self-raising flour
- 120g bag of Reese's mini peanut butter cups
- 150g Reese's Pieces
- Pre heat the oven to 180oC/ 160oC
- Line an 8 inch brownie tin
- Place the peanut butter, sugar and 150g of the chocolate in a non stick sauce pan over a low heat and, while stirring occasionally, melt. *Note the mixture will not melt completely but will make a gloop of sorts*
- Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes and then beat in the flour and eggs (or do this in a free standing mixer)
- Stir in half the bags of each of the mini cups and pieces
- Pour into your prepared brownie tin
- bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes give or take - you want a crust to form but the centre is still very slightly wobbly. Mine took 25 minutes, so my tip is to check it after 25 and see how it is.
- Once your brownie has got to this stage, leave it to cool completely in the tin
- Melt the remaining chocolate
- Once, cold, remove the brownie, and cover with the melted chocolate and decorate with the remaining Reese's chocolates.
- Leave to set and cut into pieces - you might need to chill it for a bit to set there chocolate if your kitchen is warm/you make this in hot weather. Once the brownies are at room temperature, they are all soft and squidgy.
