BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Peanutty Buckeye Bars

Hello! Maria Lichty, from Two Peas and Their Pod, here. I am thrilled to be guest posting on BHG today!

Who’s in the mood for dessert? My hand is raised. I am always in the mood for something sweet, especially when chocolate and peanut butter are involved. I love chocolate and I love peanut butter. Put them together and I am in paradise. There really isn’t a better combination. I recently made Peanutty Buckeye Bars and if you are a chocolate peanut butter fan, stop what you are doing right now and get baking! You have to make these bars!

The bars are super simple to make, another bonus! You only need six ingredients: a brownie mix, eggs, oil, peanuts, sweetened condensed milk, and peanut butter. I bet you have everything in your kitchen right now. See, you need to make these bars! They are calling your name.

The bars are layered with all kinds of goodness. The bottom layer is brownie with chopped up peanuts in the mix. The middle layer is a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and creamy peanut butter. Sweet! And to top it all off, you get another layer of peanutty brownie.

The bars are chocolaty, crunchy, with a creamy peanut butter center. I shared them with friends and everyone gave them two thumbs up. If you would like to make Peanutty Buckeye Bars…and I highly suggest you do, click here for the recipe. Enjoy!
