¾ C. flour
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate
2 tbs cocoa powder
4 tbs. butter
1 ½ C. sugar
½ C. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Salt
1 C. Reese’s Pieces + more to sprinkle on top of the frosting
½ C. Butterscotch chips to sprinkle on top of the frosting
8×8 or 9×9 baking pan
Frosting ingredients –
¼ C. butter or margarine, softened
1/3 C. cocoa
2 C. powdered sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 tbs milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line your 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish with foil and spray with a non-stick spray.
#1. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
#2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in 15-20 second increments, stirring until completely melted. Let cool 2-3 minutes.
#3. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add in the melted chocolate mixture and then slowly add in the flour and cocoa mixture and mix well.
#4. Pour batter into your baking pan and evenly spread with a spatula. Sprinkle the 1 cup of Reese’s Pieces into the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick around 25-26 minutes to check them. If the toothpick comes out ‘clean’ they are done.
Let the brownies cool completely.
Frosting directions –
#1. Combine the cocoa powder, butter, sugar and vanilla. Slowly add in the milk 1 tbs. at a time. You may want to add in more milk depending on how thick you like your frosting. Using a hand mixture, beat on high for 2-3 minutes.
#2. Once the brownies have cooled completely, lift the foil out of the pan (love the super easy clean-up!) Evenly spread the chocolate frosting over the top of the brownies.
#3. Sprinkle the extra Reese’s Pieces and the butterscotch chips on top of the frosting and cut into **12 squares.
