A brownie unlike anything you have had before.

Reese's Peanut Butter Fudge Brownie is fully loaded with your favorite peanut butter and chocolate combinations.  It will truly knock your socks off.

Honestly it was so good I have been banned from buying presents, instead there are only to be gifts of these brownies.  YEP.  THAT GOOD!

Every special occasion needs a special treat, at least in my world.  So for Mother’s Day this year I made my mother-in-law, Gigi, the most scrumptious and decadent brownie I could dream up.

Since she’s a lover of all things chocolate and peanut butter, I put the two together to create the dreamiest dessert you can imagine.

Whether this is a special occasion for you already, or you just want to create a special occasion with this fabulous dessert, you are going to love it.

As a matter of fact, Gigi has advised me that there are never to be store-bought gifts again… just these brownies. They’re a total hit!

Helpful Tips to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies:

  • These brownies freeze very well. Be sure to wrap well and defrost for 30 minutes before eating.
  • If you do not prefer peanut butter cups, you can substitute 1 cup of milk chocolate chips in the batter and omit the frosting. They are fabulous that way!

What you will need to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies:

  • 9x13 Baking Dish - I have my favorites and this set is one of them. The 9x13 is perfect for casseroles and the smaller size is awesome for making 1/2 a casserole recipe.
  • Stand Mixer -

Enjoy!

  1. Am I an evil person for wanting to put a scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream on that? I promise I'll do 100 extra crunches tomorrow ;)

  4. Oh, I love this and would love to have you figure out the dip at The Jalapeno Tree Mexican Restaurant. They will not let me know as it is a secret. But it has cilantro, butter, fajita seasoning in it. It is called Mexican Fajita Dip. Thanking you in advance.
