Buckeye Brownies are a rich brownie topped with a peanut butter truffle layer for the ultimate indulgence. If you’re looking for the ultimate dessert recipe, these Buckeye Brownies are in my all-time favorite category.
After dinner tonight I went to the fridge to taste them for a second time and all that was left was a plate with crumbs on it so it must have been a hit with the whole family.
OTHER BROWNIE RECIPES:
- Turtle Buckeye Brownies
- Red Velvet Brownies
- Chocolate Turtle Brownies
- Chocolate Cream Brownie Pie
- Brownies For a Crowd
- 1 (1 lb 6.5 oz) box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme brownie mix
- Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup butter
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray or shortening. (For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan. I do this all the time when I make brownies and bars)
- In medium bowl, make brownie mix according to the package directions. Spread in pan. Bake according to package directions. Cool completely, about 1 hour. You can speed this up by cooling in the refrigerator.
- In medium bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownie base.
- In small microwavable bowl, microwave topping ingredients uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds; stir until smooth. Cool 10 minutes; spread over filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set. For brownies, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator. (I take it out or the fridge about 15 minutes before serving. This allows the chocolate on top to soften a little)
These look amazing and we will try them tonight for dessert! I did struggle with not having enough of the chocolate topping to really cover the peanut butter. I think the next time I will double that part.
Just made a batch but used Trader Joe’s truffle brownie mix. Following package directions then made peanut butter layer and covered with chocolate. Had to give 1/2 away today or I would have eaten them ALL. They were that good!
Just made tonight. Super tasty. Found 2 cups icing sugar made it very sweet though for our household. 🙂. Easy to make adjustments. Really enjoying making some of your other recipes too! 😊 Thanks
I made these today! So easy and super yummy!!
Glad you liked them.
Super yummy, super easy, a great dish to pass!
I appreciate that these photos do not feature teeth marks. That is why I will pin this post and make this recipe.
Haha. I agree.
Hi Christy. How is it that you look Gorgeous & have all of these Scrumptious Recipes? Do you Not eat them or just use portion control? I just printed the Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies & I’m going to look at the Weekly Menu when I’m done here. Thank you for all the Great Recipes!
You’re welcome! It’s definitely a life struggle staying fit and eating all of this good stuff.
Ugh..I totally hear you. But um, you have four children. I’d say you look pretty darn incredible! These look incredible, too. I figure, if we just workout almost every single day, decently hard, we are allowed these goodies!! thanks for sharing…cannot wait to make these! 🙂
Thanks for the quick response. I did closer to the 3/4 cup. Like I said, they came out great, I’d just like for the presentation to match the taste! Looking forward to trying many more of your recipes.
Shoot! Make sure your butter is really soft in the peanut butter layer. Did you add 1/2 cup or 3/4 cup peanut butter? Also, if you take the brownies out of the fridge for a couple minutes before cutting, it softens the chocolate so it doesn’t crack.
I made these for an event this weekend. They tasted great, but I had a hard time (1) spreading the peanut butter layer (I had allowed the brownies to cool completely), and (2) cutting these into squares without the chocolate topping cracking. Any suggestions? Thanks – I’ve really enjoyed looking through your blog.
I am going to “pin” this recipe, hubby might like it since it has a box mix in the recipe. It really does look good, I am sure he will have lots of help finishing the pan of this.
I made the PB truffle brownies yesterday and OMG…so easy to make and SUPER yummy! I’m going to link to your recipe from my blog some time this week b/c all my friends were asking for the recipe!
Oh My – I found you via Pinterest and I think these look delicious!! I will be making them soon! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I will definitely be spending some time at your site and be one of your newest followers!!

I know this is an older post… But I wanted to let you know I made these yesterday morning for our Valentine’s Day dessert. The kids and husband, as well as my parents and myself, loved them! Yummy!

Ha that’s the story of my life! Work out forever and don’t lose weight. It’s that pesky love of food that continues to get in the way.
Worth every calorie!!!
I love your photo! These are actually my favorite brownies of all time. I now call them “Buckeye Brownies” after the candy b/c it has similar elements.
Oh, I wish I would have seen this post before I made my brownies the other day! I’ll just have to make some more add on the other toppings. YUM!
I totally understand how you feel about working out! Especially when you have a food blog!
YUMMY! Definitely worth getting even with the gym!
I’ve been trying a bunch of recipes from your blog, and they were much needed (we’ve been in a rut!)
I think my favorite things are the oreo truffles… I may have to buy bigger clothes before the new year! 😉
