Reese Cup Brownies

July 25, 2012Teresa

Reese Cup Brownies are spectacular! What’s not to love about Reese Cups cut up and put in a blond brownie mixture? You will have people eating out of your hand with this decadent great-tasting brownie! If you want an over the edge brownie, add a cup of vanilla chips and a cup of chopped nuts.

This recipe is inspired from my Chunky Blond Brownies — probably our favorite blond brownie recipe — and one we have made dozens of times with many different adaptations. Oreo M&M Brownies, Cranberry Nut Vanilla Chip Bars and Snickers Bar Blondies are just a few of the ones I’ve made from this basic recipe.

Everyone loves Reese’s cups, right? Well we had a bunch of them in our refrigerator that I was trying to use up. We had overbought at some point and I needed to get rid of them. I highly recommend this recipe to use up excess Halloween candy as well. These brownies are sure to please everyone in your family especially if you love peanut butter and chocolate. But, be prepared! These brownies are addictive. 🙂 Enjoy.

I first made this recipe for a group of our Vacation Bible School workers in our church in July 2012. My pictures were as meager as can be. Even still, these brownies went berserk on Pinterest, poor pictures and all!

I decided to remake these lovely brownies again last week (October 2014). I took a few new pictures so you can get a truer idea of what these lovely brownies really look like. All I can say is Reese Cup Brownies are to die for! I mean it. They’re a great option for tailgating parties, holiday Christmas cookie exchanges or any other time of the year you want a chocolate fix. Yum.
