The Freshman Cook: Buckeye Brownie Bites/#Foodie Extravaganza

Today I am participating with several other bloggers in #Foodie Extravaganza.
Every month we have a theme to use as a guide for a recipe. This month the theme is Peanut Butter.Ā 

Check out all the other peanut Butter inspired recipes at the end of this post.

Buckeye Brownie Bites are made with two of my favorite things: peanut butter and chocolate! Is there any better combination? I call these Buckeye Brownie Bites because they are somewhat of a cross between Cake Balls and Buckeye Candy!


1 box Brownie Mix

ingredients for cake brownies

listed on box


3 cups Confectioners’ Sugar

1/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla

about 1/3 cup Milk

Milk Chocolate that can be used for dipping

1/8 cup chopped Peanuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Make your brownies according to the directions

on the box. I made them cake style. Bake and then let them cool.

Make your peanut butter frosting by mixing theĀ 

sugar and peanut butter. Add your vanilla and mix well.

Add the milk in small amounts and mix until you

reach your desired consistency.

Crumble your brownies into a bowl.

Add frosting and combine the two until they have a

consistency that is easy to roll, and will stay together.

Roll the mix into small balls and refrigerate.

Melt your chocolate in a double boiler.

I used Trader Joe’s Milk Chocolate Bar.

It is Belgium chocolate and very good.

For the best results, only remove about 5 brownieĀ 

bites at a time. Leave the rest in the refrigeratorĀ 

while you are dipping the others. They are easier
to handle when they are cold.

Dip each brownie bite into the chocolate until itĀ 

is completely covered. After you dip each one,Ā 

sprinkle the top with your crushed peanuts.

I hope you enjoy these
Buckeye Brownie Bites.
