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.

How to Make Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies

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.
