Buckeye Brownies

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 Brownies were delicious! I know this is a keeper recipe when he said that. ;)
For Brownies:

Box of brownies of your choosing. I used Dark Chocolate.

Peanut Butter Cream:

  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Milk or Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 pinch of Salt

For Glaze:

  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chopped or Chips
  • ¼ cup Creamy Peanut Butter


  • Follow directions on a box of brownies of your choosing.
  • After the brownies have cooled, prepare the Peanut Butter Cream.

Peanut Butter Cream:

  • Beat butter and peanut butter on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar,
  • ½ cup at a time to hopefully avoid powdered sugar everywhere! Next add your vanilla, 1
  • TBL milk and salt. Continue to beat on medium for another 1 to 2 minutes If the cream is
  • too thick, add a little milk. If it’s too thin, just add some more powdered sugar. . Spread
  • the buttercream over the cooled brownies.
Frozen Hot Chocolate with Chocolate Cookies


  • Melt the 1 cup chocolate chips & ¼ cup peanut butter together in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Stir constantly until smooth. Let this chocolate/peanut butter mixture cool for a few minutes then pour the glaze over then buttercream. Taking a spatula, smooth the glaze evenly over top.
  • Chill the brownies one hour before serving.
