Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies #10DaysofTailgate

Play dress up with your favorite brownie mix. Add peanut butter morsels, peanut butter frosting, and chocolate covered pretzels on top! But shh don’t tell anyone it’s from a box – no one has to know.

Logo

In case you didn’t guess by the logo above, today marks the kickoff of #10DaysofTailgate which means lots of tailgating worthy recipes coming to a computer near you for the next 10 days. With over 20 bloggers involved and a HUGE giveaway thanks to our gracious sponsors this event is one you don’t want to miss. After you’ve checked out today’s recipes be sure to CLICK HERE giveaway to be directed to the giveaway post!

Since today is Saturday, it also means it is PB+Choc Saturday in honor of The Ohio State Buckeyes and the delicious peanut butter and chocolate Buckeye candies, so my kick-off recipe follows as such with peanut butter and chocolately goodness in the form of a brownie so good looking you won’t believe how easy it is to make. All you need is a box of brownie mix (and the ingredients indicated on the box), peanut butter morsels, peanut butter, and chocolate covered pretzels.

Yep those 4 things make these gorgeous brownies and they definitely will be a hit at any tailgate regardless of team allegiances (which is why I refrained from calling them Buckeye Brownies, although it helped that I already had a recipe for Buckeye Brownies). The peanut butter morsels are mixed into the brownie batter for some added fun, then once baked and cooled, peanut butter straight out of the jar is spread on top and garnished with chopped chocolate covered pretzels. That’s how you dress up boxed brownie mix!

Twix Brownies

A brownie and a Twix candy bar fell in love and and gave birth to these aptly names Twix Brownies with a shortbread crust, fudgy brownie, caramel topping and chocolate coating.

Twix Brownies

They may not be the prettiest brownies I have ever made but they make up for it in the taste department. It’s a Twix-brownie love child! Boxed brownie mix plays dress up with a homemade shortbread crust, caramel topping, and chocolate coating. Impress your friends and family this Memorial weekend with these – they will never know you used a boxed brownie mix.

I do highly recommend serving these at room temperature or slightly warm (or outside at your BBQ) as it is easier to bite through the chocolate topping when it’s not cold. As you can see from the pictures, cutting the brownies cold, even with a sharp knife, resulted in cracks.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Peeps S’mores Pie

Before I begin I must get something off my chest. I missed World Nutella Day yesterday. I haven’t missed a single one since I started this little blog o’ mine. It’s disturbing because I’ve noticed many other food holidays pass my by, such as National Peanut Butter Day – now that’s shameful! This whole move-thing really threw me off my game. But I digress…

This recipe has been a long time coming. I first made during my cousin’s bachelorette party weekend it back in May of 2013. She loves Reese’s so I mixed some into the brownie batter before it baked in a graham cracker crust, followed by a broiling of marshmallows. It turned out super gooey and was quite a challenge to eat but we still managed to kill it off, and of course I neglected to snap a photograph before the destruction.

This time around I decided to mix it up a bit and replace the regular marshmallows (yawn), with Valentine’s Day themed marshmallow Peeps! Because evidently Peeps are for more than just Easter. Specifically I used the Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts and one red marshmallow heart, because I thought it would look cute. Turns out I would’ve been better off using just the vanilla crème because the red one did not puff up at the same rate, but it was still fun!

Check out all the PEEPS® Valentine’s offerings:

  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks (3 ct)
  • Chocolate Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Bears (6 ct)
  • Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate (3 ct)
  • Marshmallow Hearts (2 and 6 ct)
  • Chocolate (milk or dark) Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts (individually wrapped)
  • Strawberry Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
  • Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
  • Sugar-Free Marshmallow Hearts (3ct)

Pumpkin Spice Brownies

Last fall I saw a few bloggers post about two-ingredient pumpkin brownies, which only requires a box of brownie mix and a can of pumpkin. I was skeptical but finally decided to try it out this year except I added in a couple more ingredients such as cinnamon, frosting and pumpkin spice M&M’s I found at Target.

Be warned, if you do not like dense fudgy brownies these are not for you. But if you do then stick around and stay awhile! As you can see from the pictures of these brownies, they are so fudgy that they actually look like fudge. I also think that the additions made them taste a little more like pumpkin than they would have otherwise. They really are a great way to make a slightly healthier Halloween treat!

Speaking of Halloween, while snapping photos of these brownies on my porch I spied a huge spider in the top corner of my porch, resting on an approximately 3-foot wide web spanning from the roof to the handrail. Commence freak out! His/her abdomen was about the size of a nickel. Add a head and legs and you’ll understand why I quickly snapped these photos and ran inside.

No I did not attempt to kill it, because when it comes to bugs, I don’t like feeling when I kill them and when they are that big that’s exactly what will happen. Besides, the spider was basically floating in the air on the web so it would’ve been hard to squash without catching it first. Who has a flame thrower I can borrow? I don’t think my kitchen torch will cut it.

In the meantime, thanks for the Halloween decorations?
