Buckeye Brownies

Buckeye Brownies recipe

Y’all knew this was only a matter of time, right? I mean, the Buckeye Cake was such a hit, that I couldn’t not make Buckeye Brownies.

In fact, I tried making regular buckeyes for you last week, but I screwed them up. Yes. I screwed up peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. I also ruined this gorgeous Thai chicken salad, cinnamon rolls, and cookies. It was not a good week last week. Every food I touched turned out kinda icky. We did a lot of drive through.

Buckeye Brownies recipe

This weekend I have big baking plans though. They pretty much all include apples, so I hope you’re ready. You should probably head to the apple orchard now in preparation. Before you walk out the door though, go ahead and whip up these Buckeye brownies. They’re quick and easy and would make a fabulous treat after a long day spent picking apples. Or after a long day spent catching up on every single new Fall television show there is. Whatever.

Buckeye Brownies recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 box mix brownies, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk, as needed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Prepare the brownies according to recipe or make brownies from a box mix.
  2. Allow brownies to cool completely.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the peanut butter, butter, and 2 cups of powdered sugar until well combined and smooth. Add more powdered sugar as needed to get the consistency you prefer. The mixture should be thick, but add a tablespoon or two of milk if needed, so that you are able to spread the mixture on the brownies.
  4. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat until it just begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips. Whisk until the chocolate is melted.
  5. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then pour over the peanut butter and brownies. Smooth with an off-set spatula and then place the brownies in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.

    Sad to hear the buckeye candies didn’t come out! But the brownie sure did! And I am totally ready for the apple avalanche.

    I kind of wish I could peel those apart and it in layers lol. I’ve never had a buckeye anything but since I love pb cups I’m guessing I might love this too.

    Ok, I gotta try these. I make buckeyes every year for Christmas and sometimes would like to have them during the year but since they are so time consuming, I only make them at Christmas. I’m not sure how you messed them up but they are worth giving another shot ;)

    These look absolutely gorgeous! Im currently saving up some recipes for when I potentially move in with a house of guys in the summer (eep!) and think this would be a winner :D

    I made these yesterday and they are very yummy, though I was disappointed in the peanut butter layer. I think the recipe calls for way more powdered sugar that it should. It was really sweet, and about twice as thick as what yours looks like in the picture! I will definitely make these again, and half the amount of powdered sugar in the PB layer. Thanks for the delicious idea!!

      I had the same problem with the peanut butter layer. Did using half the amount of powdered sugar work better?

    Hi Karly – I made these with the 4 cups of powdered sugar and it was crumbly and unspreadable, even after adding a couple tablespoons of milk. Do you think I could cut down on the sugar to make it more of a “spread”? Thanks!!

      @Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes,

      Oh, darn it! I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you! Definitely try it with less powdered sugar. Start out with 2 cups and add more until you get the consistency you’d prefer. I’ll update the recipe for that, too. I must have missed the first commenter that had issues. :(
