I can't believe it's almost Christmas! I mean I CAN believe it… but at the same time it feels like the holiday season just started! The next couple of days are going to be so awesome… starting with making some really delicious treats for my family to enjoy. Thank you to Vons for sponsoring this post.

Yesterday Pete and I headed over to Vons to finish our Christmas dessert shopping.

The girls and I have a long list of treats we plan to bake so we quickly bought everything we needed at Vons . Then bright and early this morning the festivities started with our national “baking day”! The first treat we baked was Pete's favorite Peanut Butter Brownies.

These have been a favorite for years and they have both Betty Crocker™ and Hershey’s® products, including their brownie mix and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. These ingredients are what make these so awesome!

We learned years ago that the ease and love are baked right in when you use Betty Crocker™ and Hershey’s® for your holiday delights.


These are the ingredients we used.

  • Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (at least 12 cups)
  • Betty Crocker Whipped Frosting (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water

  6. Cool and then add frosting if desired.

That's it! These are so easy to make.

They also make excellent gifts because they travel really well. They are pretty sturdy and stay really moist if kept in a plastic bag.
