Reese’s is something that I’ve come to like over the past years that’s been spent in DC. The first time I tried it though, I was not so convinced at all. Mostly because they were so rich and a lot. But, a lot isn’t necessarily bad, but can be really good. My roommate found this recipe from Sally’s baking addition, and I had to try it, and, of course, spice it up a little. I went to the store and got both Reese’s pieces as well as mini peanut butter cups. Then I made the batters, added in Reese’s pieces in the chocolate batter, and chopped peanut butter cups to add on top. Let’s just say, these brownie’s aren’t for someone looking for a light pastry, but for someone looking to satisfy their extreme chocolate, candy, peanut butter and brownie cravings. The brownie turned out amazing, but it was so heavy! Like actually the physical weight. When I took it out of the oven I had to use both my hands (!!). Another remarkable thing was that the three layers I created turned into a swirl of chocolate and peanut butter mix which made the whole experience even better since it all mixed. Bottom line; the next time you get a huge sugar-card-chocolate craving – don’t hesitate that this will more than make you happy.
