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.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Butter a 13x9 pan and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat, melt together the 4 squares of chocolate and the butter.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. (You could also do this in the microwave.) In a mixing bowl, beat together eggs and sugar.
  6. Add vanilla and pour in chocolate mixture; blend thoroughly.
  7. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  8. Gradually add to chocolate mixture, beating well.
  9. Stir in chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces.
  10. Spoon batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until dry on top and almost firm to the touch.
  11. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before cutting into squares.

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!

I never knew E.T. loved reese's piece's, but after these brownie's I can see why. It's a good thing they make a 13x9 because they go real quick!!!

Mmmmmmm! I melted the choc & butter in the (900W) micro. for 2 min 30 sec on 70%, stopping to stir twice. I used M&Ms instead of choc. chips and used unsweetened Ghirardelli choc so they are rich and extremely good! Baked for 35 min. Thanks so much for the recipe Lennie!! :)
