When I saw these I knew I had to make them because they look pretty amazing. I thought of our friend John who is from Ohio as I pulled out the ingredients to make them. I didn't know a lot about Ohio when I met him (and I still don't) but one thing I learned about Ohio from him is this- being a Buckeye fan is just part of the culture. John is a Buckeye. We had the sister missionaries over for dinner on Sunday and one was from Ohio so I made these for her. She said they made her feel right at home.
buckeye brownies (Lil' Luna)
1 box fudge brownie mix
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
In a 9x13 prepared pan, make and bake brownie mix according to box directions. Let cool.
In a bowl mix the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter. Spread with fingers over the brownies and pat down (it has a consistency similar to playdough). It helped me to wet my fingers because it was sticky!
Melt together 6 tablespoons butter and chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat stirring constantly. Spread over brownies.
