Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwiches

Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwiches RecipeSometimes a girl needs a peanut butter and chocolate fix.  One day last week, that want was spurred on by the purchase of twenty Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts I bought at the store.  Noooo, they weren’t for me. I can very proudly say, I didn’t eat a one of em.   (They are a weakness of mine and I def could have eaten them all.)  They weren’t for a recipe either.   They were for my nieces and nephews, and along with a Valentine, off they went in the mail.  I had such regrets after sealing the last package that I hadn’t kept at least one for myself.  It nagged at me to the point where I decided to make my own chocolate and peanut butter treat.  I guess I could have just run to the store and bought myself a peanut butter heart, but truth be told, I was being lazy.  Besides, once I stumbled upon the idea of making these brownies, I knew I could make them almost as quickly as if I had made another trip to the market.  All the ingredients were in my pantry, and they are probably in your pantry too.
Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwiches RecipeOh my gosh, just when I thought I was being so disciplined by not gorging myself with Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts, well, you probably can guess what happened.  These little sandwiches are fudgy, and chocolatety, and umm, that peanut butter center sweetened with sugar and enriched with butter.  I think you probably have the picture.  Oh well, the best of intentions…..
Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwiches RecipeI considered adding bittersweet chocolate chips to the brownies but in the end decided not to.  Maybe the next time I make these brownie sandwiches I will.  Feel free to add chips to your sandwiches, and if you do, please let me know what you think.  This is such a quick, easy, and intensely satisfying treat, there is absolutely no reason NOT to make them; unless of course, you don’t like peanut butter.  In that case, think Nutella or Dulce de Leche as an alternative for the filling.

  1. Hmmmm…..Rebecca and Joel arrive in 3 weeks. Could be their “welcome back to California” treat!

  2. I can resist store bought candies. Homemade treats? Never! My family would devour these spectacular Brownie Sandwiches without even grabbing a second glass of milk!

  3. This looks plain, magical, Mary. Not even kidding! 😛 Reese’s PB cups are one of my greatest weaknesses as well. Their holiday shaped version don’t help my resistance, either.

    • Lynna, I think it is the filling to chocolate ratio of the Reese’s holiday shapes that make them especially irresistible. My weakness, for sure!
