Why do I love Lazy Buckeye Brownies Recipe?
- I love lazy buckeye brownies because they are so easy to make!
- It only takes a few ingredients and about thirty minutes of your time.
- The result is an indulgent treat that’s full of nutty sweet flavor from the peanut butter and melty chocolate chips.
What type of pan is best to use for baking?
You should make these lazy buckeye brownies in a 9×13 baking dish. That is the perfect size to keep them from being too thick, so they bake evenly.
How much baking time is needed to make the brownies?
They are done in about 20-25 minutes. After they have baked, you’ll need to add the peanut butter layer and chocolate layer, then let them cool.
What is the optimal temperature for baking the brownies?
You’ll need to follow the directions on the box of brownies. Typically, most brownies bake at 350 degrees or 375 degrees. But be sure to follow the directions when baking them.
What type of chocolate is typically used in this recipe?
We recommend making this buckeye brownies recipe with melted chocolate chips. However, you can use any of your favorite chocolate. Just chop it up and melt it.
How much butter is needed for this recipe?
You’ll need 2 full sticks of butter. Be sure you start with softened butter. If you use cold butter, it won’t mix well with the peanut butter and powdered sugar and can lead to a lumpy peanut butter layer.
Are there any special techniques needed to prepare the brownies?
Be sure to allow plenty of time for the buckeye brownies plenty of time to cool and set up. If you cut them too soon, they will fall apart

Are there any tips to make sure the brownies come out moist?
Follow the directions on the brownie box exactly. Also, never overbake the brownies, or they will become dry. It’s also important to know that you shouldn’t overmix the brownie batter, either.
Is there a way to keep the brownies from sticking to the pan?
Typically, brownies have enough oil in them that they don’t stick to the pan. However, you can grease the pan with shortening or use non-stick cooking spray to make sure they don’t stick.
What type of topping can be used for added flavor?
Sprinkle with chopped candy bars, M&Ms, sprinkles, crushed cookies, or anything else you think sounds good. Nuts and dried fruits are also great ideas.
Can this recipe be adapted to make a larger batch?
It’s fine to make as many brownies mixes as you wish. You will need to make multiple batches for feeding a crowd.
