Spinster Party Food: Reese's Pieces Brownies

So, last night I went to a rooftop BBQ, and of course I needed to bring a treat. I was going to make these brownies my mom makes with the toffee Symphony bar baked inside them, but when I couldn't find the candy bar at the grocery store, my plan was a little foiled. Brownie mix in hand, though, I stood in front of the candy thinking. Snickers? Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? Ah! Reese's Pieces!

So, basically all I did was follow the directions on the back of the Duncan Hines brownie mix, and then, before I put the mix in the pan, I stirred in half a large bag of Reese's Pieces. I baked for the regular amount of time, and when I pulled them out, I pushed a few more of the candies into the top of the brownies.

Well, once they'd cooled a little, and I was cutting them into squares, I took one and had a little taste. Of course I took a corner piece because those are the best. But, the peanut butter in the Reese's Pieces had melted, and it was really, really delicious. So, I recommend next time you want to jazz up your brownies, you consider trying adding some Reese's Pieces!

Also, pictured here, the Brownies are in a tin from the container store, on my navy velvet sofa, in front of the pillow my mother made and sent to me at work this week. All treats!

  2. The pillow turned out so cute! I was with her when she bought the fabric, so I practically helped make it, right?
