Chocolate & Peanut Butter 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. If you’re a fan of brownies, and especially chocolate and peanut butter, these Buckeye Brownies are ones to try.
I know these are a new favorite because the hubby isn’t a huge fan of brownies, but he LOVED this version. With a brownie base, peanut butter fudge center and chocolate top, they’re hard not to love! So, why are they called Buckeyes?
Why are they called Buckeyes?
Buckeyes are a confection made from a peanut butter fudge partially dipped in chocolate to leave a circle of peanut butter visible. This is a brownie version because it uses the same kind of peanut butter fudge in the middle and is also topped with chocolate. Adding the layer of brownie on the bottom make them even more irresistible!!
Look at those layers!! Seriously, so yummy! That middle layer is my fav. 😉
