White Chocolate Reese Cup Topped Brownies

whitechocreesecuptoppedbrownies

This past Labor Day, I was in charge of making the desserts for my mom’s barbecue lunch. First I made mandarin orange cake with pineapple fluffy frosting.  To go along with that light desert, I decided to make something on the richer side. Since everyone in my family loves chocolate, I used one of my favorite brownie recipes as a base. Instead of topping the brownies with frosting, I chopped up an entire bag of white chocolate Reese cups and layered them on top before baking. The results were quite interesting. The white chocolate from the Reese cups melted and spread during the baking process, creating a unique topping almost like a chewy frosting. They were very rich as expected, but almost everyone in my family ended up preferring brownies with good old chocolate frosting. My daughter ate the Reese cups off the top and skipped the brownie part, while my husband remarked that they tasted good but were too much on the sweet side for him.
