  1. 1 box of brownie mix
  2. ingredients to make brownies
Peanut Butter Filling
  1. ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  2. ½ cup unsalted butter
  3. Pinch salt
  4. 2¼ cups powdered sugar
  5. 2 tablespoons whole milk
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chocolate Ganache Topping
  1. 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  2. 1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
  3. 1/2 cup butter
  1. Make the brownies according to the package directions (use a 13 x 9" pan). Cool on the counter for about 20 minutes. Then place in the refrigerator while you make the peanut butter filling. If you undercook the brownies by a minute or 2 it keeps them nice and fudgy so they stay fresh in the refrigerator longer.
Peanut Butter Filling
  1. Beat together the peanut butter and butter in a large bowl until nice and smooth. Then beat in the vanilla extract.
  2. On low speed, mix in a cup of the powdered sugar then add a tablespoon of milk. Make sure those are mixed in well. Repeat with the remaining powdered sugar and milk. Increase mixer speed and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too dry add small amounts of milk until you get a good spreading consistency.
  3. Remove brownies from refrigerator and frost with the peanut butter filling. Place pan back in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Chocolate Ganache Topping
  1. Put topping ingredients in a microwave proof bowl. Heat in microwave on 50% power in 30 second increments. Stir after each until completely melted.
  2. Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove brownies from refrigerator and pour chocolate evenly over top. Spread with spatula to cover entire pan.
  3. Place brownies back in refrigerator and let cool for several hours before serving.
  1. If you cover your pan with foil before coating with oil the brownies will be much easier to remove.
  2. Cut these into small pieces - they are very rich!

  6. My hubby is a transplanted Ohio Buckeye. When we go back to Ohio to visit, we have to buy some buckeyes at a little coffee shop in his home town. With this recipe, we can indulge in that little bit of chocolate-peanut butter heaven right here in Texas. Printing and pinning.

  10. I have to admit I was surprised to find a recipe that called for buckeyes – to be honest, glad it didn’t.

    This is certainly something I would make – I’m an eat the peanut butter out of the jar kind of girl.

  11. I always make a ton of Christmas cookies and each year I look for new recipes to make. This one will be added to the list this year.

  12. That sure sounds like a tasty treat! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner Party!
