Fluffernutter Fudge Brownies

I recently learned something new about my desserts…

Fluffernutter Fudge Brownies - brownies with fudge and Reese's is the way to go when a chocolate craving hits www.insidebrucrewlife.com
They can be used just like money in certain situations.
My oldest son has been using desserts in trades to get more/better lunches at school.
At lunch time, he gives anyone who wants a “taste” of the sweets…
then whoever will trade him the best lunch item, gets the goodies.
fluffernutter fudge brownies, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Pieces, fudge brownies
So far he has gotten pizza, garlic bread, and a plate of french fries.
I haven’t decided whether to be upset that he is trading away his lunch that I lovingly made,
or happy because so many of his friends are wanting my sweets…
For now I am going with happy because everyone likes good reviews of the things they make.
It is just like getting comments on this blog from someone who made your recipe and loved it.
Which by the way, I LOVE to hear from you guys when that happens.
Totally makes my day…just sayin:-)

If you are looking for a fast and easy brownie to take to any picnics or family gatherings,
these Fluffernutter Fudge Brownies have your name written all over them.
Chocolate brownies made from a box…or get jiggy and make one from scratch if you like….whatev.
I’m kind of a box mix girl for now.  But only because of convenience.
Then whip up an easy fudge from chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk
and fill it with whatever candy floats your boat.
My boat is always floating with marshmallows and Reese’s candies.
Something about that peanut butter and marshmallow stuff that just gets me every single time.
Last week I made a pan of these for our church picnic…
and the only thing that came home from the picnic was a plate of crumbs.
Love it when that happens.
Of course my son wasn’t too happy because then he didn’t have anything to barter with on Monday.
He actually had to eat his own lunch that day.
I guess he forgot about the cookies in the freezer.  Ooops!

Fluffernutter Fudge Brownies

Chocolate brownies topped with a marshmallow, peanut butter cup fudge...grab a cup of milk because you are going to need it.

Ingredients

1 box brownie mix (13×9 pan size)
1 cup snack sized Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped (about 12)
1 cup miniature Reese's Pieces
2 cups marshmallows
2 cups chocolate chips
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  1. Prepare brownies according to the 2 egg directions on the back of the box. Bake about 25 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. In a saucepan combine the chocolate chips and milk. Heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool 2 minutes. Stir the marshmallows, peanut butter cups, and pieces in by hand gently. Spoon on top of the brownies and spread out. Work quickly with the fudge because it will set up very quickly. Let cool until set. Cut into 24 squares. Store in a tightly sealed container.

Any of these Reese’s treats would make good picnic food too:

    No way. I just posted a fluffernutter smoothie! In 3+ years of recipes, I have NEVER posted something with that title and the very first post I clicked on from my reader was yours – it was meant to be. Your brownies look scrumptious!

    These look and sound super!!
    I’ll make my own brownies and use your top. I even have condensed milk in the freezer ready to be used (I make myself)
    BTW – I like your son. Clever boy :)

    Jocelyn, it’s only because your son gets to sample all of your treats that he’s able to trade away at school. I know if you were to send some of these my way, I wouldn’t trade even a crumb for $1,000! Well maybe $1,000 but I’d split the proceeds with you and beg you to send me more. I’ll be featuring these at Thursday’s Treasures this week, and the party will be starting at 8pm (new time) Wed night! Can’t wait to see what you bring this week. Pinned.

    Instead of cut up snack sized (foil wrapped) reeses® miniature cups, you can subsititute (unwrapped) reeses® mini peanut butter cups, without cutting them. I’m sure they will work just fine. In any recipe that calls for peanut butter cups.

    I made these for my nephew’s birthday treat yesterday and everyone enjoyed them. I had the larger reese’s pieces because I’ve not seen the mini. Next time I’ll need to look harder because I think they would be better, as it was hard to cut the fudge layer neatly with the larger ones. But taste was great.

    I read your blog post to my son and he totally agreed that swapping out the good stuff at lunch is a standard process at this lunch table in middle school. Sounds like I should up my game next year so I can make sure he is on the winning end :-)

      I am so glad to hear that everyone liked the brownies. Thank you so much for sharing with me. I buy the small Reese’s in the baking aisle at Walmart or Target…they are usually by the chocolate chips.
