Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Brownies

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  This past weekend, I babysat my niece for the first time!  She’s 1 month old and is absolutely adorable.  I decided to make these Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Brownies to bring over to my sister and brother-in-law to enjoy before they went out for the evening.  I was searching for a dessert to make that was easy and quick and this is definitely the perfect one.  You need to try it out ASAP!

  • 1 box of your favorite brownie mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Peanut Butter Frosting:

  • 1, 16 oz container of vanilla frosting
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1-2 tsp milk
  • 1 box Reese’s Pieces
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.  Spray  13 x 9″ baking pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. Make brownie batter as directed on box.  Spread batter in pan and with a knife, swirl peanut butter through batter.
  3. Bake 25-28 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool completely.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix frosting ingredients and spread frosting over brownies.  Place Reese’s Pieces in a plastic Ziploc bag and lightly crush with a rolling pin, breaking candies up into pieces.
  5. Sprinkle Reese’s Pieces over brownies and serve.
