Mini Reese’s Pieces Brownies

Mini Reese’s Pieces Brownies

I don’t make brownies too often, but when I do I always make sure to do two things: under-bake them a bit and make sure the butter used in the recipe has set out on the shelf all day. Just cooking them for 1 to 3 minutes less and using VERY soft (not melted) butter can take a dry cake-like  textured brownie and turn it into a moist and fudgy brownie. These were no exception, as the original brownie recipe I use calls for baking for 40 minutes and using slightly softened butter. Of course, the other thing that makes these brownies so special is the fact that instead of using nuts, I added an entire bag of miniature Reese’s Pieces. The peanut butter crunch adds the perfect touch to these moist and fudgy delights.
