Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Brownies

Sharing is caring!

I tend to make desserts by the box, but I have found that if you just add one little thing, you get an entirely new, kid-friendly recipe.   Seriously, why spend all that time doing the measuring when you can start any recipe with a preset and create amazing boxed cake mix hacks?

My kids are in LOVE with this Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Brownies recipe and it was so simple.  Now, I have to keep brownie mix and Reese’s peanut butter chips on hand at all times. LOL!

Reeses Peanut Butter Chips Brownies

While I am a straight junk food junkie, brownies tend to be my weakness.  Though, I am pretty picky with them!  My mom has always put frosting on brownies, so I find it strange to eat them without it. 🙂  Another picky, I don’t like nuts in my brownies!  To me, that just ruins the gooey texture of perfect homemade brownies!

Everyone loves these Brownie Mix Add Ins ideas as well!
