Buckeye brownies sure are a treat!  Although I don’t like it when you cut into a brownie and it falls apart.  So to solve that, I made buckeye brownie bites!  Easy to eat, no falling apart and they look cute too.  You could use any brownie mix for the bottom, but I made a homemade one that is rich and chocolatey!  To top it off, I made a rich chocolate glaze.  I also thought they looked a little plain so I sprinkled on some shaved white chocolate!  

Ingredients are as follows:
brownie layer:

1/2 C butter
3/4 C sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 C cocoa powder
1/2 C flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder 

peanut butter topping:

2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1 3/4 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. milk

chocolate glaze: 

1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa
3/4 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. warm water 
shaved white chocolate, optional

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a muffin (cupcake) pan.

In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat.


Remove from heat; stir in the sugar, beaten eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix until combined.

 
Divide evenly into the cup tins.


Bake for 8-10 minutes.


While they’re cooling. Cream together the butter and peanut butter.


Stir in powdered sugar.


Add milk and mix until creamy.


Take a spoonful and spread it on top of a cooled brownie.


To make the glaze melt butter in a bowl; stir in the cocoa, powdered sugar, vanilla and water.  Mix until creamy.


Spread this onto the peanut butter mixture.


Sprinkle on some shaved white chocolate.


Take a bite and enjoy!
