Ingredients

  • 1 box (17.8 oz) Betty Crocker™ Delights Supreme Triple Chunk Brownie Mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
  • 1/2 cup chopped cocktail peanuts
  • 1 cup from 1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting

  • 2

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The unwrapped minis are perfect for topping the brownie, but if you can’t find them, the wrapped miniature peanut butter cups will also work for this Reese’s Pieces brownies recipe. Just be sure to cut them in half before topping.
  • tip 2
    Placing melted chocolate in a resealable food-storage plastic bag for drizzling gives a more polished look. You can also dip the bottom edge of a fork into the melted chocolate, and quickly move your wrist back and forth to create a zigzag pattern.
  • tip 3
    Short on time? Bake the brownie the day before. Once cooled completely, store covered at room temperature. The next day, lift brownie out of pan and continue with this recipe.
