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!

Reese’s Peanut butter brownies recipe

Reese’s peanut butter brownies


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 11/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cube cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup Eaglebrand sweet condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 12 oz pkg mini white chocolate reese's peanut butter cups milk chocolate is yummy too!!


  1. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add one egg in at a time. Mix in cocoa, flour and baking powder. Beat until smooth. Split the bag of reeses in half. You will use half the bag in the brownie batter and half the bag for the frosting. Cut the reeses into four pieces and mix into the batter.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes in a 9 x 13 inch greased pan. Do NOT over bake.
  3. Allow brownies to cool for one hour.
  4. For the frosting beat together the cream cheese, sweet condensed milk and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes. Spread on top of the brownies. Sprinkle the remaining reese's on top and refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.

    What kind of Vanilla and exactly how much cream cheese is a cube? I am just learning how to cook food that is not from a box :)

    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
