Peanut Butter Blondies with Peanut Butter Cups

Filed under: Uncategorized — Emily @ 12:22 am

Much thanks to bakingblonde for helping me come up with an idea for blondies with some awesome mix-ins. I used her basic blondie recipe with some adaptations and they were awesome!

These were seriously some of the best things I have ever put in my mouth! The perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate:

Peanut Butter Blondies with Peanut Butter Cup

6 Tbs. melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder (optional, but creates a lighter texture)

1/3 cup peanut butter (I used smooth, but you could use crunchy)

1/2-1 cup peanut butter cups (I used the miniature ones from Trader Joe’s)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line an 8×8 pan with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.

Mix the brown sugar with the melted butter and beat until smooth. Beat in egg and then vanilla. Then mix in peanut butter. Add salt, flour and baking powder. By hand, mix in peanut butter cups (I put mine in the freezer for a few minutes so they wouldn’t melt while I tried to chop them).

Pour into prepared pan and use a greased spatula to evenly spread mixture in pan and level the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set in the middle. Cook on rack before cutting.

Another suggestion—drizzle the top with chocolate!

  5. What I love most is that your brownies are thick and not wimpy thin! This is a brownie I’d love to sink my teeth into 🙂
