Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies

Kelli Thomas Recipe

By Kelli Thomas kelli1

Yum. The rich taste of peanut butter with Reese's Pieces candies. I dare you to try to eat only one.

We are a household of peanut butter lovers. Entire jars of peanut butter have been known to go missing in a week and my 3 year old refers to the jar of Jif as "my peanut butter." My husband puts peanut butter on his pancakes- no joke. Needless to say, these bars never last very long. These bars would also be good with chocolate chips in place of the candies as well.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 13 x 9 pan. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until combined. Add the eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter.
2
Stir the flour in by hand. Then fold in the Reese's Pieces. (Note: the original recipe calls for a 12 oz bag of mini Reese's Pieces, but I cannot find those at the store, so I just use regular Reese's Pieces).
3
Spoon into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
