Ingredients

for the brownies

for the peanut butter layer

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

for the chocolate ganache

  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  •  3 Tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Prepare brownies according to directions, making sure you fully line the pan with parchment paper on all sides. Allow to cool completely.
  2. While the brownies cool, make buckeye topping. In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter and peanut butter together, whisking until combined. Add the powdered sugar, salt and vanilla and stir until no clumps of powdered sugar remain.Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the prepared brownies and use a spatula to form an even layer. Set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and heavy cream in 30 second intervals, stirring well between each until completely melted. Pour the chocolate ganache over the peanut butter layer and spread into an even layer. Place the brownies in the fridge and cool until the ganache is set, at least 1 hour.
  4. Slice and serve! Keep well for up to 1 week in airtight container!
