These kind of speak for themselves, am I right? I think I *may* have just blown your diets to pieces. Sorry.

Actually…I’m not really sorry. If I can’t avoid sugar than neither can you! 😉

I’ve been on a magic bar kick lately. I made monster magic bars, cookies ‘n cream magic bars, almond white chocolate magic bars, and I have a few more save to share with you. They are just SO easy to make and so sinfully good! The possibilities are endless.

These babies…well. The crust is a brownie. You know that whole “make a crust out of cake mix” idea? With one stick of butter and an egg? I did it with brownies.

{You’re welcome.}

Then I chopped up some peanut butter cups and added peanut butter chips and chocolate chips along with my favorite drink, sweetened condensed milk.

These brownies are a mouthful. They are a meal. Skip lunch and eat two of these bad boys. Take that Weight Watchers!

Could there be a better magic bar? I’m not sure…

Brownie Peanut Butter Magic Bars


  • 1 box Brownie Mix (19.5 ounces)
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 8 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Beat brownie mix, butter, and egg in a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until combined. (Mixture will be thick.) Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped peanut butter cups, peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips over the brownie crust. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the candy.
  4. Bake 28-30 minutes, until edges of brownies begin to brown. Let cool completely before slicing into bars. (Little goes a log way - these babies are rich! Cut small bars for best consumption.)

  1. I love these! This is my 3rd time making them and today I am making 2 batches. I want to freeze a batch. Is that ok?

    • Yes! I always freeze bars. Just make sure they’re in a tightly sealed container and in a single layer – the SCM may make them stick together if you stack them. A few Quart or a Gallon sized ziploc is perfect for this!

  3. These are AWESOME.  Seriously.  So wrong and so irresistible.  I only have one thing to add….   when spreading the brownie “dough” – use a piece of saran wrap!  Put the dough in the dish in clumps and cover with a sheet of plastic wrap.  Then you can use your hands without making a mess (so much easier and faster than trying to do it with a spatula) and the cling wrap just peels right off.  Done and done.  WE LOVE THESE DARN THINGS.  Thank you!
