Hershey's Brownies with Peanut Butter Chips

This was supposed to be pumpkin week but my husband (who literally works next to the base commissary that sells groceries) forgot to buy pumpkin. Oh well, here's a brownie recipe instead.

This recipe is pretty easy. Even if you use a brownie mix, it's about the same amount of effort.

  • 1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, melted 
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar 
  • 4 eggs 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) 
  • REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips, divided 
  • 1/2 cup Peanut butter chips
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Stir together butter and sugar in large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla; beat with spoon or whisk until well blended. 
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, stirring until well blended. 
  4. Reserve 1/2 cup peanut butter chips for glaze; stir remaining chips into batter. Spread batter in prepared pan.
  5. Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 pan.
  6. Combine 1/2 cup REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips (reserved from brownies), 2 tablespoons butter or margarine and 2 tablespoons milk in small microwave-safe bowl. 
  7. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 45 seconds; stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
  8. Gradually add 1/4 cup powdered sugar, beating with whisk until smooth. About 1/2 cup glaze.
