Steve, ( my long suffering brownie taste tester, lol,) loves my basic brownies but had asked me recently to make them w/ a little more "oomph." OOMPH is what he got w/ these!! He is the 1 who called them " triple threat," & that was 2 days ago..the pan has maybe 6 pieces of brownie left!!!

How to Make From scratch- triple threat Reese's brownies


  1. Heat oven to 325 and lightly spray all sides of a 9 X 13" baking pan w/ cooking spray. Set aside. In medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour & baking cocoa.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Slowly beat in the flour/baking cocoa mix. Beat in the peanut butter.
  3. Add chocolate chips and chocolate chunks & w/ a large, sturdy spoon make sure to mix the chocolate in evenly. Spoon into pan and w/ a large spatula, evenly spread the mix to cover the bottom of pan. Bake for between 20-25 minutes, depending on your stove. While the brownies are baking, chop up the Reese's peanut butter candy bar into chunks. At 20 minutes, test w/ a toothpick inserted into center. It should come out w/ maybe a few crumbs but no wet looking batter. Let cool just a few minutes and then sprinkle the Reese's chunks all over the top. Let cool about 10 minutes. Spoon about 3/4 cup of whipped frosting into a microwave safe bowl, Microwave 15-20 seconds so that it still has some thickness to it but can be drizzled. Drizzle all over the top of the brownies. Let cool 5 minutes and then cut into small, ( they ARE rich & dense,) or larger pieces. These brownies are so much more decadent eaten warm!
