Buckeye Brownies

Watch How To Make It

For The Brownie Layer

  • 1 and ½ Sticks of Butter (cut into little squares for melting in the microwave)
  • 3/4 of a Cup Cocoa Powder (I used dark but light or dark can be used)
  • 1 2/3 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons of Water
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Large Eggs (beaten)
  • 1 ⅓ Cups of Flour
  • ½ Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Salt

For The Peanut Butter Layer

  • 2 Cups of Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 1/4 Cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of Milk
  • 1 Stick of Butter (cut into little squares for melting in the microwave)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

For The Chocolate Layer

  • 1 1/2 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 6 Tablespoons of Butter (cut into little squares for melting in the microwave)

For The Brownie Layer

  1. Line a 13X9 baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  3. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  4. Melt your butter in the microwave.
  5. Add into the butter, the cocoa, sugar, and eggs (mix well with a spatula, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  6. In the same bowl as the butter mixture, add in the flour mixture, a little at a time, making sure you are mixing it together well. 
  7. Spread into the pan. 
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
  9. Let it cool.

For The Peanut Butter Layer 

  1. Melt the butter and peanut butter together in the microwave. (there is lots of oil so only melt for 15 seconds at a time until the butter is melted).
  2. Add in the milk and vanilla, then start adding the confectioner’s sugar until the mixture is spreadable.  (You do not want it too paste-like). 
  3. Spread the layer on the cooled brownies.

For The Chocolate Layer

  1. Melt the morsels and the butter in the microwave in 15-second increments stirring until it is melted.  Do not burn the chocolate, if you do you have to throw it out and start again. 
  2. Add the chocolate layer and let the brownies sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
