Buckeye Brownies

Many years ago, we lived in the small town of Westerville,Ohio. We stayed for 2 years before we moved back to Texas. It was a beautiful town, lots of fun and gave us the opportunity to travel all over up north. One of the things I miss are their "Buckeyes". These are round candies made from a peanut butter mix that is partially dipped in chocolate - they are named Buckeyes because they look just like the nut on a Buckeye tree. These candies are indigenous to Ohio but you can order them online or make them yourself .
I thought I'd make a Buckeye Brownie to remind us of  Westerville. My PB lover is gonna gobble them up.
 Make yourself a pan of your favorite brownies, while they are cooling make the PB filling.
1/2 c (1 stick) softened butter
2/3 c creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2 c powdered sugar
1-4 tbsp milk
1 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Beat together butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add vanilla and salt then alternately add milk and powdered sugar, beating after each addition. If it's too thick, thin it out with a little milk. If it's too thin add more powdered sugar. I think thicker worked better for this recipe. Set them aside in the fridge to set up.
Now go melt your chocolate chips. I used microwave. Spread melted chocolate over peanut butter layer. Let them harden and set up in refrigerator before cutting to serve.

Well now, I will just have to share this post with my older daughter's beau who went to The Ohio State University. Here in the Northeast there is a company called TastyKake that makes a Peanut Butter Tandy Cake that is very similar to your recipe. -- Joann

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do
a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post.
I am very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
