Swirls of chocolate and peanut butter make these Ultimate Reese’s Cheesecake Brownies absolutely irresistible. These brownies always disappear in a hurry at parties and events.
When the kids were younger they knew how much I loved Reese’s candies. Any time they got peanut butter cups from school, church, or parties they would bring them home and give them to me excitedly.
As they got older, they also developed a love for those peanut butter candies, so they weren’t as willing to hand them over. There were some very grudging candy sharing moments until they realized something.
They figured out that if they ate them before getting home that I wouldn’t know they ever had them. What?!?!?!?!
