These Best-Ever Buckeye Brownies are a combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Those brownies will make every one of you happy, especially peanut butter and chocolate lovers. I like to eat it with hot coffee, just to balance the sweetness.
I remember when we visited my aunt during Summer, she prepared and served these brownies to us. I don’t enjoy peanut butter that much, but these brownies are an exception. The combination is very good, I mean I never expected it to be good, but it was. Buckeyes are a treat made from a partly dipped peanut butter fudge in chocolate. It is a brownie variant since in the middle, and it uses the same form of peanut butter fudge and is also coated in chocolate. Also, you can add some toppings of your choice.
