Brownies Made with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Chocolate and peanut butter are two of my family’s favorite flavors, so this oh so delicious Reeses brownies recipe is a perfect fit for us.
One look and you know they are going to be chocolatey, but it’s when you take a bite that you get the surprise Reese’s peanut butter taste.
When I was a kid, candy was a special treat reserved for Halloween. After trick or treating, I would carefully sort and organize my haul.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were my absolute favorite, so I would set them aside and make them last. I savored each and every one.
I still love them, but do so whenever I want instead of just once a year.
When Reese’s go on sale before and after Halloween, it is the perfect time to stock up on Reese’s.
Perhaps your kids will even let you raid their trick or treat bag, so that you can make these out of this world brownies.
This recipe calls for miniature sized Reese’s.
If all you have is full sized ones, you can use them instead. If you do, I recommend chopping or breaking them before mixing them in.
I might be imagining this, but I think the bigger ones have more of the peanut flavor and the minis have more chocolate.
At a glance, these look like regular brownies. However, it is obvious that they are something special, when you take a bite.
You’ll know they were made with Reese’s, even though their aren’t visible full size Peanut Butter Cups in the brownies. The taste gives it away.
