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!

  8. Amazing! Want one now!

  9. Oh, YUMMMMM!! Can’t wait to try this out!! :D

  10. 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:(

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. How are they the next day? Thinking about making them tonight for a party tomorrow.

  14. 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

  15. Not sure about the white chocolate… but the rest looks so delicious! Thanks!

  16. Yummy! This looks absolutely amazing! Thanks for the great ideas!

  17. Thank you these look yummy

  18. Made these and they were wonderful, and delicious, and perfect! Despite me being a novice cook xD

  19. What do you mean by 1 cube of cream cheese – is that 4 oz or 8 oz

  20. Have you ever made these only gluten free? Could you substitute the flour or would it taste bad?

  21. Would it be best to do them at night if there are going to be for lunch the next day?

    I made these using pillsbury’s all purpose gluten free flour for the brownies and they were delicious. But I used dark chocolate Reeses on top to contrast the frosting

  23. I was wondering how much is 1 cube of cream cheese for your recipe Reeses peanut butter Brownies with cheesecake?

  24. Hi! I’m wanting to try your recipe but the flour measurement is unclear. Do you mean 1 1/2 cups of flour or 1/2 a cup?
