Frequently Asked Questions:

            Why is this recipe special?

The Buckeye Brownies is an easy recipe to make. They taste great and are filled with flavor. The brownies are super indulgent and take only a few ingredients and less than an hour of your time.

            What size of baking dish should we use?

I would suggest a 9×13 baking pan. This will make the perfect size and will prevent the brownies from being too thick.

            Do these need to be refrigerated?

The Buckeye Brownies can sit on the counter for a few hours at a time, but, like most desserts, are always better when refrigerated. This prevents the ganache and peanut butter filling from being runny or too soft.
