REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER BLONDIES

Reese's Peanut Butter Blondies - Butter With a Side of Bread

My husband’s favorite candy bars are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so I’m always looking for fun ways to use them in desserts. Reese’s Pieces are just the perfect colors for fall, so I whipped up these blondies to celebrate the fabulous fall weather we’ve been having lately! These blondies are so soft and delicious – they definitely didn’t last very long at my house!

REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER BLONDIES

  • 10 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces (I used all 1 1/2 cups of the mini ones)
  • 15-20 miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, cut in half

Grease a 9×13 pan and line with parchment paper. Lightly spray the parchment paper as well.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugars and peanut butter together with an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt until well combined. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until thick dough forms. Fold in the Reese’s pieces and miniature peanut butter cups and then press the dough into the prepared pan.  Bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes. These cut beautifully when cooled, but they taste really good straight out of the oven too!  Enjoy!
