The "Rite" Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

A buffet lunch plate including a one of the delicious brownies~ he only took one because he didn't know how good they are!!

1 pound butter (2 sticks)
1 pound + 1 package (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
6 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
7 large eggs
2 tbsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup oat flour
1 cup rice flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Kosher salt
3 cups chopped nuts (I used pecans)
12 Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped roughly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 pan with non-stick spray.

Melt together butter, 1 pound chocolate chips, and unsweetened chocolate in microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring after each one. After melted, set aside to cool.

Stir together eggs, vanilla and sugar. Stir in warm chocolate mixture.

Stir together flours, baking powder and salt; Add to chocolate mixture and mix well. Add nuts and remaining chocolate chips to batter; fold in gently.

Bake for 20 minutes; take out and rap pan against oven shelf to allow air to escape from between pan and dough; rotate pan for even baking. Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes more. Take pan out of oven and sprinkle with peanut butter cups. Return to oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until tester just comes out clean. Do not over bake. Cool thoroughly and cut into squares. These are very thick and very rich~ cut into small squares & people will think they don't need as much!!
