We are not Martha: Reese's Pieces Peanut Buttery Brownies

By now you probably know that I'm extremely obsessive about peanut butter. I almost took a picture of my kitchen cabinet to show you how serious my obsession is, but then I worried someone would have me committed. Yes, I've heard about all the horrible salmonella cases, but I just can't give peanut butter up (and it's all on sale at the grocery store too!). I just make sure I'm careful not to eat anything on the recall list, but otherwise, I don't find it necessary to give up my joy in life (fine, it's not my only joy in life, but it is a big one).

Anyway, it's pretty hard to give up peanut butter when people keep posting peanut butter recipes all over the Internet. Sara posted a recipe from The Life and Times of Grumpy's Honeybunch for "Da Bombe Brownies Peanut Butter Style" and I was so in love, I made them the next day. I re-named them to:

Reese's Pieces Peanut Buttery Brownies:

  • 1 1/2 C mini peanut butter cups, chopped (I would use more next time though)
  • 1 C butter, melted (2 sticks)
  • 3 C sugar
  • 1.5 T vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 C Reese's pieces
First I chopped up all my mini peanut butter cups. The recipe called for 1 1/2 cups, but I will definitely use more next time. The brownies weren't quite peanut buttery enough for my likes. I might even throw a dash of real peanut butter into the batter just to make them even more delicious.

Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. One at a time, mix in your 4 eggs until fully combined.

Then in a separate bowl, whisk together your flour, cocoa powder, and salt.

Slowly pour the dry ingredients mixture into the wet mixture and mix until it's well combined. Then add in your peanut butter cups!

Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish.

Then pour your Reese's Pieces over the top. The recipe called for mini Reese's Pieces, but I couldn't find them (and didn't even know they existed...I guess they're probably like mini M&Ms?), so I just used the regular size.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.

And then dig in! Make sure you don't bake the brownies too long as it's easy for them to get dry (they're super thick). That's another reason I think the addition of some creamy peanut butter is an amazing idea.

If you feel sick after eating these...I'm going to take a guess and say it's because you ate way too many of them and that it doesn't have anything to do with salmonella. But it's OK; I don't blame you for eating the whole batch of them. They're that good.
