Last week, I shared the Big Game Brownies that Reagan and I worked together to create, and while they were super delicious to eat, she wanted to bake a much girlier and festive version to go along with Valentine’s Day. I can’t say that I blame her! While we’ve got these Candy Stuffed Brownies decorated for the upcoming romantic holiday, you could easily transform these to fit any occasion!
We stocked up on the Pillsbury brownie mixes and frosting from Walmart a couple of weeks back so I didn’t have to go shopping again. We were able to just dig right in and get to baking! Want to save on Pillsbury baking mixes and frostings? Go HERE to learn more.
Pillsbury Brownie Mix, plus required ingredients from the package
assorted candies ( I used peanut butter cups and chocolate candy pieces)
Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Vanilla frosting
1. Prepare the brownie mix according to the directions on the back of the package. Set the prepared batter to the side.
2. Unwrap the peanut butter cups. I used about 16 cups for our brownies because I wanted it packed full; use more or less depending on how you’d like your brownies to taste.
3. Chop the peanut butter cups to create large chunks.
4. Pour half of the prepared batter into an 8×8 pan, making sure to spread it out evenly across the bottom of the pan.
5. Sprinkle the peanut butter cup chunks and the chocolate candy pieces across the batter.
Doesn’t it look yummy? Drool.
6. Pour the remaining batter on top of the candy pieces. Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely once they have cooked all the way through.
7. Once the brownies are cooled, spread the frosting across the top and embellish with the sprinkles and additional chocolate candy pieces.
Reagan is so thrilled with the results that she’s already discussing making more for her teacher for Valentine’s Day. I love her sweet and giving heart! You can find more ways to mix up a moment with Pillsbury by visiting their Pinterest boards.
