Love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? These Reese’s brownies are for you then!
Ryon isn’t much of a sweets eater, which is polar opposite of myself. A few things he does indulge in are Reese’s peanut butter cups, ice cream and brownies. He had requested brownies a few weeks ago, so when I made the brownie brittle I whipped up a double batch and made him a dessert trifecta. Reese’s brownies. And we ate them warm with vanilla ice cream on top. And then I won wife of the year for this easy homemade recipe. [Not really, but I should have.]
Reese’s brownie recipe
For this recipe I modified these basic brownies from Jamie over at Love Bakes Good Cakes. I changed a few things up so my ingredient list looked like this:
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 tbs PB2 Peanut Butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 6-7 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
Have you heard of PB2 Peanut Butter? Its a super healthy version of regular peanut butter because they press out all the oils from the peanuts. Its sold as a powder and you mix it with water to make your own peanut butter. Its really kinda cool and its very good! So after I poured the brownie batter into the pan I mixed some PB2 and added it on top. I swirled it around and then put the chopped Reese’s on top, just for good peanut buttery, chocolatey goodness.
It was hard to wait for these to cool completely, so we didn’t. I cut them into squares and we added vanilla ice cream on top. I watched my husband’s eyes light up when he took the first bite. He said they tasted just like a giant Reese’s. These bad boys were so moist too! I didn’t use any oil in the brownies so I was slightly worried but the PB2 Peanut Butter must of helped because they were amazing.
These would also be a great as a gift during the holidays. Wrap them up or put them in a pretty jar and send them off. I sent about half of this batch to my moms house because I knew we would eat the entire pan of them. They are that good! Serve with vanilla ice cream!
