Best Ever Buckeye Brownies - Most Pinned Post

Thanks to an office potluck at Gooseberry Patch this peanut butter recipe is here for us all to drool over! Gooseberry Patch shared it on their Facebook page!  I have made this so many times and every time I do the recipe gets passed onto someone new!  They kindly shared the recipe from Almost Homemade Gooseberry Patch Cookbook.

This recipe couldn't be easier to make, and if you've got chocolate-peanut butter fans in your house, they'll be gone before you know it!

My family and I are ex-Buckeyes (from Ohio) and traditional Buckeyes were always a holiday treat, although time consuming to make. I'll have to check out this version - I'm sure my kids will love them. Found you from a post on Pinterest.

These look amazing! I'm wondering...is it really a 8oz jar of PB? Or is it supposed to be an 18oz jar?

Anonymous said...

Did anyone have problems spreading the peanut butter layer?

Anonymous said...

I'm also wondering about the 8 oz jar of peanut butter. I think it should probably be 18. I'm making these as we speak so I'll let you know.

Is it tsp or tablespoons of butter? Also, 8 not 18 oz peanut butter?

Susie Buetow said...

6 Tablespoons of butter

8 oz creamy peanut butter (it is 1 cup or 8 oz.) but not 18 oz.

If you all would leave an email I could respond back to you individually! Hope you got the info.

I'd love this in a natural form now bought cake mix. I'm glueten intolerant so need to make everything from scratch

Sandra Orourkeglynn said...

I'd love this from scratch not bought cake mix. I'm gluten intolerant so these ready mixes are not an option. A lot of American recipe books and blogs use these

Just got invited to a new year day party. This is what I will b taking, I have everything in my cupboard, sounds great cant wait to taste these and so much easier then the round buckeyes.


Cierra Brown said...

Do you melt the 2 cups of butter when you mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar??

Susie Buetow said...

Hi Cierra-

1/2 c. plus 6 Tablespoons butter, softened and divided

The buter is just 1/2 cup for the first step and it is just very soft, not melted. The last 6 Tablespoons does get melted with the chocolate chips to put on top.

Enjoy!! THese are so yummy

Hi Sandra,
I can't respond to your personally, I don't have an email add or anywhere to respond so I hope you see this message.
You don't have to use a mix for the bottom layer. Just make your own brownies from scratch and then do the two layers as directed. HOpe that helps!

Can't help but droll over this. Those brownies look delicious.

Monica Vaughan said...

Do you have to let them cool before you add the chocolate chips or can they cool.once they are added? It seems like it has two cooling stages if I am reading this right. ktvsmom@gmail.com

Monica Vaughan said...

Is the cooling step before adding the chocolate chips necessary or can it all cool at once?

Susie Buetow said...

Monica-

Prepare and bake brownie mix in a greased 13"x9" baking pan according to package directions. Let cool. (Just let them cool why you do the next step)

Mix powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter. Mix well and spread over cooled brownies. (the brownies will be cool enough to then add the peanut butter)

Chill for one hour. (if you don't let chill then you won't be able to spread on the chocolate layer)

Melt together chocolate chips and remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Spread over brownies. Let cool (letting them cool before eating is up to you ...if you can wait that long. You'll see when make them. they are worth it.)

; cut into squares. Makes 2 to 3 dozen.

Yona Williams said...

My nephew would love to eat these - he is a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan.

Happy #ThrowbackThursdayLP Day!

Laura Hoppe said...

Should these be refrigerated until served? I was going to bring to work but didn't know if it was best to keep in the fridge or if they could sit out.

Susie Buetow said...

Hi Laura,

These brownies can sit out or go in fridge. They are good either way.ENJOY!

My peanut butter mix came out clumpy is that right?

jlclll said...

I found this recipe on Pintrest over a year ago and people request that I make these all the time!! I love peanut butter and these are delicious!! So glad you shared!! Will continue to make and share with others!!

D you even really need the butter in the peanut butter layer. An awful lot of extra calories if it really won't make a difference if it's in there.
