Best-Ever Buckeye Brownies!
If you take it somewhere, you'd better bring the recipe with you!

These are really good and take minimal additional effort from baking box (or your favorite scratch recipe) brownies. We prefer Ghiradelli brownies, so that's what I used (and used an 8X8 glass pan since they are a smaller yield). I halved the PB and chocolate toppings to make up for the smaller pan. I wasn't sold on the PB when I licked the beaters, but it really works on the brownies. I'm super lazy, so I nuked the chocolate chips and butter for 45 seconds before pouring them over the PB layer. I'll definitely make these again! THANKS for the recipe!Read More
there is no number of sprinkles that is going to make me okay with eating the eyes of a deer. they don't even have a distinct flavor; it's all texture, so making brownies from them is just cruelty for no reason. somewhere there are a lot of blind deer all because you watched too much anthony bourdain.Read More

These were a HUGE hit at our block party! I have made them twice in 2 weeks. They are extremely rich, but crazy good. I made them exactly as written.
These were easy to make and were absolutely delicious. I didn't change a thing.
This was the Recipe Group choice for July 2015 and I am a bit late in preparing it. We used the "Duncan Hines dark chocolate fudge brownie" mix.(18.2 ounce box). There is no way the three of could consume the whole recipe (or at least we shouldn't) so I cut the recipe in half. I used a kitchen scale to measure half of the mix accurately. We used an 8x8 glass pan. It was fun to make and very good. I have to admit that we altered the last step. Instead of melting the chocolate chips with butter, we omitted the butter and sprinkled the un-melted milk chocolate chips on top of the peanut butter mixture. TIP-Before you measure the peanut butter, spray the measuring cup with baking spray or wipe the butter wrapper inside the cup so the peanut butter slides out easier. Works for us. As other's mentioned, it is very rich. But we'll be making it again. Thanks for the recipe!
I made a double batch! Just doubled everything and used my quarter-sheet-cake pan... took most of them to work, everybody loved them. The only "negative" is that once you eat one, you can't stop eating them...!
I made these for opening day of the OSU Buckeyes football season. They were a big hit. My changes- I put my butter and Peanut butter in a bowl and microwaved on medium for 1 minute tile the PB was softened and then mixed the confectioners sugar and 1 TBSPN of Vanilla in and beat. I've made buckeye balls and this is how I do them also.
A little goes a long way with these brownies, as they are super rich and sweet! I followed the recipe exactly, using a 9/13 pan. We liked them but the consensus was that they were a little too sweet for our liking. Maybe next time I will cut back on the powdered sugar. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Cindy Yonkman!
I make these regularly for pot lucks at work, celebrations, and just because. They are a HUGE hit with my friends and coworkers. Rarely are there any left for me to bring home. I love buckeye candies, and these are a great alternative!
Awesome recipe! Served it at a work pot luck and everyone loved it!
Absolutely amazing! I used butter flavored shortening in place of the butter w/the chips for the topping. We LOVED these!!
This was my Super Bowl Sunday take along. Fabulous! Not overly sweet, very rich. Crowd pleaser for sure!
I make with triple chunk brownie mix and Simply Jif peanut butter. I also use Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. These are very rich so be sure to cut them into small squares, a little goes a long way!
SO YUMMY! These were a hit at my work potluck. What wasn't eaten during the day people scrambled to take home. I used a fudge brownie mix for 9x13 pan and followed the recipe exactly. It was the perfect combination. They were a little messy taking out of the pan because the brownies were so moist. But SO worth it! I can't wait to make them for my adult daughters who love buckeye candy.
Very yummy! I brought these to work for a food day and received many compliments and requests for the recipe.
These are the best. I like to put aluminum foil and then put canola oil spray and so then I can wash the pan with the brownies on the counter. Anyway I will definitely make these again plenty more.
Recipe Group Selection: 04, July 2015 ~ I'm late getting this recipe made, but DH is glad I made them. I used a small box of Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie with chocolate chips, so I made in a smaller pan and halved the filling/topping ingredients. They are incredibly rich, but everyone loved them.
These are amazing! I am a chocolate lover and these really hit the spot! The top is like pure fudge. So yummy and so easy.
Made these several years now! These are amazing!
Being a OSU Buckeye fan, I will definitely make this for more football parties. I used the Ghiradelli brownie mix which is for a 9” square pan. I still followed the same recipe for the peanut butter topping and chocolate layers! Just made it extra yummy!
Made it as is and it was delicious! Very rich, so needed to cut it into small pieces.
I did not make any changes. Love this recipe. I’ll definitely make again
I made this using the directions on the brownie box and I tend to like the brownies more cake-like so I add the extra egg. When I make this again, (because I definitely will!) I will make the more gooey brownies. I think this will be a much better texture.
Major hit with co workers for a carry in dessert and neighborhood kids as well. Mixture of chocolate and peanut butter and more chocolate is a triple win. Easy to make and directions are spot on. Thanks for sharing
Yum! These brownies were truly delicious and a big hit with my grandchildren! I love making them happy! Thanks Buzz recipe group for picking a real enjoyable winner! I would make these again in a heartbeat!
Pure Deliciousness!! These are sinful and ohhhhh so good!! I made my go to brownie recipe from this site (Homemade chocolate walnut brownies) i needed something to cure my sweet craving LoL and this fit the bill! A small piece goes along way these are very rich and decadent! Makr these you wont regret it!!
Our 12 year old son made this for a church dinner. It was the best dessert there!
My little sisters say this is their new favorite recipe. The rest of my family thought it was a little too sweet, but they want me to make it again.
I've been making these for my two teenage boys and they love them.thanks for the great recipe.
Although very tasty, mine fell apart when cutting into them. I followed the directions exactly including refrigeration times. But the chocolate came off as did the peanut butter layer when I cut them. Wondering what I did wrong.
I made these once, and the kids twice in the past three weeks-awesome!
I made it exactly as written and didn't find it too sweet, although it is very rich. A 1 1/2" square piece is perfect. If making for a potluck or large group, this recipe is fine as written. I would halve it for 2-4 people.
Made this for Recipe Group...Simple and delicious! Everyone that tried them raved and asked for the recipe...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I like these browies
I made this for a pot luck. There weren't any left over. Very good.
It was a little rich, might cut back on the powdered sugar in the peanut butter layer next time, but I look it to a small Independence Day party and it quickly disappeared!
These are very tasty and have a great visual presentation. I received a lot of compliments that these looked professional because of the well-defined layers and the nice and neat edges to the smooth chocolate topping. I used my grandma's brownie recipe instead of boxed brownies and dark chocolate chips in the topping, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. They have already become part of my treat rotation for pot lucks and when I have company.
Took my cue from the reviewer who used the Ghiradelli Brownie mix in a smaller pan. They were sensational. We loved them! Not too sweet even with all the layers.
Best darn dessert on this planet, period (for those who love chocolate & peanut butter flavors together). If you don’t, but love chocolate, just make it w/o the peanut butter filling for a chocoholic delight. This made a huge batch and I would’ve gained 10lbs because I would’ve eaten the whole pan in about 2 days, so we froze the reminder and it worked great. Just take out a few at a time and let them thaw at room temp...still delish!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
First of all I have to call them Wolverine Brownies....no disrespect for my Ohio State brethren haha! Really really good but I cut the powdered sugar in half and they were still plenty sweet. If you dont like insanely sweet treats I suggest you do same. With that one change I will make these many more times!!!
Everybody loved them so much, so easy to make (followed the recipe). If you don't want to call them buckeye brownies, you can call them peanut butter cup brownies. Warning they are addictive, cut in small pieces.
Nice texture and presentation. Peanut butter layer was too sweet even with low sugar peanut butter. Next time, I’ll try less sugar and a little more peanut butter.
big hit at my house!
Everybody loved them!
The peanut butter part was a pain to get on the brownies. They are massively sweet. I think if I ever made them again I would only use only one cup of powdered sugar. Not the best brownie I have ever had but not the worst.
These were really tasty, rich but tasty. I used the Best Brownie recipe on AR instead of a box for the brownie. I halved the filling and ganache since I was making a 9x9 pan. The filling was really dry so I added 2 tbsps of 5% cream, I used natural unsweetened/unsalted PB so that may be why. Definitely will make again when craving a PB treat.
Outrageously sinful! Small piece with a hot cup of coffee—sooo good.
I used the best brownie recipe on this site and this was great! I made exactly as described, but I used dark chocolate for the top for health reasons.
Made these for Recipe Group (= These are very tasty! Luckily I cut them fairly small - because they are *rich* nuggets of yumminess (= I did add 4 more tablespoons of butter to the peanut butter layer - to make it creamier and more spreadable. I would probably add 2T more, next time, for a total of 14T of butter in the peanut butter layer. Everyone at work loved these (= Nummy, nummy! Thank you, Cindy!
These were so good and so easy! We have dairy allergies in our family, so we substituted plant butter and enjoy life chips. Delicious!
I luv this recipe. I made a change tho. In the pb layer I did 1 cup pb,1/2 cup butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, 4 oz cream cheese. It is a subtle delicious treat
i didn't have a box of brownie mix on hand so made the brownies from scratch. and i had some leftover chocolate butter cream frosting i needed to use up, so i heated it up and let it boil about 2 mins and it turned into the most fabulous fudge for the topping. but this concept/recipe is fantastic!! so rich, fudgey and yummy!!
Super good! Made these for a family BBQ and everybody thought I had done something fancy! Nope! Boxed mix brownies, and SO good!
It was good, but not anything extraordinary
Very good but must be kept refrigerated.
These are amazing !
Omg!!!! These are ridiculously good!!!!! Made them for the Super Bowl. I might have one for breakfast right now
My husband and daughter both liked them but said it needed more brownie. Next time I'll bake the brownie in a smaller pan so it's thicker and adjust the other layers.
It was delicious! The only problem was that I could not stop eating it!
These are the best!
