Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Egg Brownies

These brownies are LOADED with Reese's Pieces AND Reese's Eggs for a peanut butter treat that's perfect for Spring!

Hello, Spring.

I love so much about you. Namely, Reese’s Eggs. Don’t get me wrong, I eat every shape of Reese’s out there, but the eggs are my favorite. They were the first shape that I ever had as a child and they have long since remained a favorite. The chocolate to peanut butter ratio is just plain perfect, if you ask me.

So, it’s Spring and that means that you can find me not outside, amidst the sunshine and budding flowers, but locked in our pantry, hiding from the children while I shove Reese’s eggs in my face at breakneck speeds so that I’m not caught and forced to share.

Ahhh, parenthood. It’s exactly like I imagined as a child, except not.

Anyway, to celebrate the season where I binge on peanut butter eggs, I thought we’d make some brownies. I found some Reese’s Pieces pastel eggs at my local grocery store and decided to stock up on those for my hidden snacking, too. They made a great addition to these brownies!

I was out of cocoa powder, so I just used a box mix to make these Spring inspired brownies, but my favorite brownie recipe would have been even better!

I used the smaller Reese’s Eggs in these brownies, the ones that come in a big bag and will fit inside a plastic Easter egg if you do a little squishing, not the full size ones that come in a 6 pack with the cardboard in each package.  You can use the big ones if you want, but I tend to eat all of those before I can ever bake with them. The shame. It’s crippling.

The chocolate to peanut butter ratio of peanut butter eggs is just plain perfect, if you ask me. Adding them to brownies is the icing on the cake.

Ingredients

  • 1 family size box brownie mix or your favorite recipe, prepared but not baked
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces Pastel Eggs
  • 10 small Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs the kind from the bag, not the kind in the 6 pack box

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven according to the recipe for your brownie mix. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Pour just enough of the prepared brownie batter into the pan to cover the bottom in a thin layer.
  3. Stir the Reese's Pieces Pastel Eggs into the remaining brownie batter.
  4. Place the Reese's Eggs in the pan with the brownie batter, spreading them out so that each brownie will get a chunk of the egg.
  5. Pour the remaining brownie batter over the Reese's Eggs and bake according to the recipe instructions.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool before cutting.
