Buckeye Brownies

Last year my hubby gave me a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I went crazy downloading free cookbooks onto it! Well, the other day, I was looking through one and found this recipe and just knew I had to make them!! These seem like they would be a little complicated to make, but with the help of a brownie mix, they are super easy and SCRUMPTIOUS!! You must try these!!

Start by baking a pan of brownies in a 9x9 pan.  I used a Betty Crocker family size mix.  The box actually says that it is a 13x9 size but I always put them in this 9x9  pan. ( It just makes a more substantial brownie). 


Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 c. softened butter, and 1 cup peanut butter.


  Spread mixture over cooled brownies!!  Now for the topping!  Melt 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips and 5 T. butter in a microwave safe bowl for 15 second intervals, stirring in between time.  Spread melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture!


Allow to cool completely!  Cut into squares!  I put mine in the fridge and they set up in no time!  In fact, I stored them in the fridge! 

Look at all those yummy layers!!!  Enjoy!!
