Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blondies
Well, also like usual, I made two things because I couldn't decide. I asked some of the guys what they preferred and got equal votes for the two things I was debating, so I made both! I made blackberry bars (Ben fought hard for those), and these Reese's Peanut Butter Blondies. Peanut butter and chocolate is such a perfect combination. For a 95 degree day outside, I preferred the blackberry bars, but these were delicious too! I'm keeping the recipe around for when it starts getting cooler again and peanut butter doesn't seem so heavy for a dessert :-)
So trust me, these are awesome. Make them when you want a quick bar cookie to bring to a potluck!
- ½ cups Butter
- ¼ cups Peanut Butter
- ¾ cups Brown Sugar
- ¼ cups White Sugar
- 2 whole Eggs
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 cups Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Chopped
Once the peanut butter has melted in, add sugars and the butter mixture to a mixing bowl. Cream together.
Add in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Once eggs are blended in, add flour, salt, and vanilla and combine.
Smooth the top with a spatula and bake for about 26 minutes (I started checking around 35 minutes and pulled the pan out of the oven when the center seemed set- wish I remembered how long it ended up taking!).
