Ok, I have to be honest here. I never heard of Buckeye Candy which is what this brownie recipe is based on. I found this delicious recipe when I was looking for a new brownie recipe. The second I saw the ingredients, I knew I just had to make these Awesome Buckeye Brownies.

Just like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, these Brownies combine two ingredients that go perfectly together, chocolate and peanut butter.
