E T Brownies

Recipe by Lennie

Remember E.T.? He loved Reese's Pieces. Most kids love these brownies. "Big" kids too! I got this recipe from The Toronto Star newspaper back when the movie came out and I still make them. (My family likes peanut butter.)

A delicious recipe, just a little less fudgy than I would have liked. These make cakey brownies, which are delicious with their candy (I used M & M's instead of Reese's Pieces) and chocolate chips. I added a basic chocolate buttercream frosting once these were sufficiently cooled. One thing - all of my M&M's sunk to the bottom of the brownies! :) I'll have to experiment to see how to remedy this problem. All in all, a delicious treat!
