Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies

1 stick butter, melted
2 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Reese's Fast Break Bars
1/3 cup Reese's Pieces 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 8 X 8” baking dish.

Gather your peanut butter and chocolate.  Chop the mini candy bars into 4-5 pieces and the peanut butter cups in to about 4. You will want about 1 cup total.  Any more than that and it will be too much.  Set aside. 

Melt butter in small glass bowl in microwave.  In medium bowl add butter, egg, sugars, and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add cocoa powder and mix well, breaking up chocolate clumps.  You can use a whisk if you like, I used a rubber spatula.  Add flour and mix just until combined. 


Spread 1/2 to 2/3 of the batter into the pan.   Smooth.  Top with cut up peanut butter and chocolate goodies. Dump remaining batter on top and smooth over the candy to cover.  You need to make sure any caramel part is covered with batter. Sprinkle Reese's Pieces on top and gently press in. 


Bake for 25-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  (Be careful not to poke a candy bar or it will skew your results!) Cool completely before cutting.
