Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Brownies

Oh my gosh, yall. These are soo good. 

Have you ever had Buckeye balls? They are balls of creamy peanut butter, coated in chocolate. They are creamier than Reese's - different, but just as delicious. 

Recipes are floating all over Pinterest for these buckeyes on top of brownies. I didn't quite trust any of the recipes. I wanted something hard enough that I could cut into squares, but soft enough to mesh well with the brownie. I didn't want the chocolate on top to be too hard that it cracks in random lines. But I didn't want it too soft that it slides off of the top. So I put together my own recipe.

Start with your favorite brownie recipe. I used a boxed brownie, instead of making these, to save time. I am kicking myself for it. I should have made better brownies - but these were still delicious.

Once your brownies are cooked and cooled, mix the following:

1 stick butter softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/4 cup powdered sugar

Press the mixture on top of the brownies. You can use cling wrap if it starts sticking to your hands.

Melt together:

1.5 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

Spread the chocolate mixture on top and refrigerate until cool. 


  1. Baby Girl's going to come out loving her chocolate and peanut butter! You've always been a fan of Reese's.
