Buckeye Brownies

Do you like brownies?

It’s one of our “Go-To” recipes if we’re looking for a quick and yummy treat. I always have the ingredients on hand, and since we always have ice cream we have an instant delicious dessert, which is nice since we’ve been trying to make friends and invite more people over for dinner and/or dessert. I thought it would be fun to change things up and wanted to try a new brownie recipe from Gooseberry Patch. It was a hit with everyone… and I mean EVERYONE!! My hubby isn’t a huge fun of brownies but said that these Buckeye Browniesย were delicious! I know this is a keeper recipe when he said that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Layered Buckeye Brownies recipe - delicious!!

If you’re a fan of brownies, you will definitely want to try this version. It is really easy to make and takes regular brownies to a whole new level! ๐Ÿ˜€
Buckeye Brownies
  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 TB unsalted butter, softened

    What does it mean by “when your hour is just about up” in the Buckeye Brownies recipe?

    YUM! These all look so good. I don’t crave brownies very often, but when I do I want to eat the whole pan. You may have inspired that craving again ;o) pinned.

    Hey there! I just made these tonight – a double batch in my big lasagna pan. Oooooooh my. Quite honestly the best dessert I have made in forever! There are going to be some very happy people at our after-church luncheon tomorrow! I used Reynolds Non-Stick foil and Pam and removed the whole slab of brownies from the pan after they cooled completely and then added the peanut butter buttercream and chocolate layers so that I would be able to cut the brownies into smaller squares than, I’m sure, the kids at the luncheon would have! :o) A little of these goes a long way – very, very good! Thanks for an amazing recipe!

    Could you use semi sweet chocolate chips or does it need to be milk chocolate? These look amazing!

  17. 27

    are these able to be frozen?

  18. 28

    Wondering.. the list of ingred. lists 1/2 cup butter..
    then it reads : add the 1/2 cup butter to p-sugar & so on.
    then : add ‘remaining’ butter to melted choc chips..

    was there a typo ???

    wondering if I can use a cake mix instead of brownie mix !

  30. 51

    Can I use salted butter? Will it make that much of a difference? That’s all I have besides margarine…

  31. 53

    I change the fillings…add cream de menth,cherry, or orange flavoring…only I make scratch brownies with a can of Hershey’s …the bomb.

    Patti Cray Roy :

    I have made these for my family twice (so far..) and they are fantastic! My question is, has anyone ever tried freezing them? My sons and their families are coming for several days over thanksgiving and I’m trying to do as much in advance as possible, and these brownies are a MUST HAVE! And thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  34. 56

    Any tips on cutting them once they are done? Do you stick them in fridge to keep brownie layer more adhered to top? I’m not getting the crisp pretty cute like your photo. :)

  35. 58

    Oh my so will be making buckeye brownies found u from a friend on fb where can I sign up to make sure I see your great recipes?

  36. 60

    I really thought this wasa real recipe. Sad to see it’s another boxed “creation”. I’m sure it’s good, but rather make from scratch.
