These homemade layered brownies are so decadent, they might make you feel a little weak in the knees. Our Buckeye Brownies start off with a yummy homemade brownie batter, and then they get a creamy peanut butter filling for the next layer. To take 'em to the next level, we top these off with a 3-ingredient chocolate glaze. Put it all together, and the entire neighborhood will be lining up for a square!
What You'll Need
- 4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped peanuts
- Peanut Butter Layer
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- Chocolate Glaze
- 4 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt unsweetened chocolate and 1-1/2 sticks butter in microwave on high 2 minutes or just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. (This can also be done in a saucepan on stove over low heat.) Stir in granulated sugar then mix in the beaten eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour and peanuts then spread in baking dish.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs; do not overbake. Cool in baking dish.
- Meanwhile, to make Peanut Butter Layer, in a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and confectioners' sugar until well blended and smooth. Spread over cooled brownies.
- To make the Chocolate Glaze, place the semisweet chocolate, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat mixture in microwave on high 2 minutes or just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. (This can also be done in a saucepan on stove over low heat.) Spread over peanut butter layer. Cool until set then cut into squares.
Test Kitchen Tip
- Make sure to ask if anyone is allergic to peanuts before serving these up at a potluck or to the neighborhood kids. Remember to grab a big glass of cold milk to wash them down, otherwise you’ll wind up with peanut butter-mouth! That’s where you’re mouth clamps shut. You know what we mean. It's happened to all of us once or twice!
