Chocolate and peanut butter, a better partnership than peanut butter and jelly in my opinion. These buckeye brownies taste just like the popular peanut butter and chocolate candy, buckeyes. With the help of a 13″X9″ brownie mix, these buckeye brownies are also easy to make.
To make these peanut butter and chocolate Buckeye Brownies start with a basic brownie mix for a 13″ x 9″ pan. Make the brownies and bake them according to the box directions. The let them cool. You better hide them from the kids or husband.
Then spread out over the cooled brownies.
Let the brownies cool for an hour. Then prepare the chocolate ganache to pour over the peanut butter frosting. Begin by heating whipping cream over medium heat until just beginning to bubble. Remove from heat and then add the 8-ounces of dark chocolate. Stir into the cream until melted. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
