And aren't those chopped up peanut butter cups just beautiful?
I go crazy for Reese's cups! I just love the peanut butter chocolate combination. So obviously I was so excited to find this recipe. These brownies disappeared too quickly but I was thrilled they turned out so well.
This recipe starts by baking a basic brownie recipe and topping the brownies off with Reese's and marshmallows. I didn't have enough Reese's (sad, I know) so I added chocolate chips and broken up Hershey's milk chocolate. Although you can't beat Reese's, I would imagine using any chocolate candy (e.g. chopped up Snickers, Kit Kats, etc.) would work as excellent substitutes.
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8- or 9-inch square baking pan.
- Stir together marshmallows, mini peanut butter cups and peanuts; set aside. Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until melted. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla; beat with spoon until well blended. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; stir until well blended. Spread batter in prepared pan.
- Bake 22 minutes. Sprinkle peanut butter cup mixture over top. Continue baking 5 minutes or until marshmallows have softened and puffed slightly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Using wet knife cut into squares. About 20 brownies.
