Buckeye Brownies

Jen Sobjack

This buckeye brownies recipe gets its name from the chocolate peanut butter buckeye candies. They have a rich chocolate layer, topped with a perfect layer of peanut butter filling and then a layer of chocolate ganache. There might not be a better brownie out there.

Make the brownie batter and bake the brownies until cooked through.


While the brownies bake, make the filling. In a mixing bowl, combined melted butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix until well combined. The mixture will be thick.


Gently drop peanut butter filling over the warm brownies, using the back of a spoon to make sure brownies are completely covered.


Place the chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally until fully melted and smooth.


Pour the ganache over the brownies, and use a silicone spatula to spread the ganache evenly over the top. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.
