Life Changing Brownies

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Ok, maybe these brownies won't change your life, but they will make you feel better. And that's pretty cool, right?

Below is an awesome tip to take your brownies from "tasting pretty good" to "I think I'm going to eat the whole batch in one sitting." I took these brownies to book club one night and my friend Vanessa was having a really bad day and felt totally overwhelmed. She had one of these amazing brownies and immediately felt better. I'm telling you, there is pure magic in these!

The recipe is so simple, but the rewards are so awesome. You only need brownie mix (plus the eggs, oil and water) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Here is what you do:
1.) Prepare your favorite brownie mix according to the box directions (unless you're uber cool and make your brownies from scratch, then make 'em that way).

2.) Pop the brownies in the over for 4 minutes less than originally called for.

3.) While the brownies are baking, you create the magic. Unwrap Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and cut them into fourths. I know Reese's also has a mini version, but I prefer the cups, because you get more peanut butter. (You could really use any kind of meltable candy like York Peppermint Patties or something, but I'm a huge peanut fan!)

4.) Once the brownies are finished baking (minus four minutes!) take them out of the oven and sprinkle the cut up Reese's all over the top of the chocolate goodness.

5.) Pop the brownies back in the over to bake/melt for the final 4 minutes.

6.) Take the brownies out of the oven and, using a spatula, smear the melted Reese's Peanut Butter Cups all over the top of the brownies.

7.) Allow to cool

8.) See if your brownies can even make it out of the pan and onto a plate, because trust me - you will be ready to devour them.
