Ok, these brownies I’m sharing today are the REAL deal friends! Holy cow! If you follow me on facebook you got a little sneak peak yesterday. So here’s how it all went down. Sunday I whipped up a batch of brownies and I decided to add some reese’s peanut butter cups in the batter to sweeten things up. Well one thing led to the next and I had this crazy idea to make a cheesecake frosting. It was so simple, yet made all the difference. These reese’s peanut butter brownies are dangerously delicious! WOW! You must try them!

    I made these today, followed the direction exactly, and I have to say that I am beyond disappointed:( the cream cheese/sweetened condensed milk is runny after 3 1/2 hours in the fridge….the brownie part isn’t very brownie like:( I wouldn’t be as disappointed if I wasn’t a baker….but I am always trying new recipes and I bake 4 days out of 7 and this is my first complaint, sorry:(

    Oh my these were so wonderful. Made them tonight and everyone loved them. I substituted regular Reese’s minis for the white. Turned out great. Thanks for a wonderful and easy recipe.

    I just made these this afternoon. The brownie part turned out a little bit thicker than I would have hoped. Should I do something different with the recipe next time, or do I need a bigger pan? I used a 9×13 today. Other than that, they were great!

    Everything was fine until we got to the frosting, I followed all instructions, when taken out of the fridge, the frosting was all soggy =[ made brownies taste like chocolate ice cream
