Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

17 Sep

My husband and I both love Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. I thought it was really good! Strangely enough, he didn’t think they were anything special. Next time I make them, I will leave out the extra chocolate chips in the batter. I would like to taste more of the blondie + the peanut butter cups. The chocolate chips added to the batter in my opinion are a little overboard in the chocolate department….if you can believe that 🙂

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk or semisweet chocolate chips

  3. In a separate medium bowl, stir to combine the peanut butter, butter, milk, vanilla and eggs. 
  4. Add peanut butter mixture to dry ingredients, and gently stir until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips until combined (do not over mix).
  5. Pour batter in prepared baking dish.  Arrange peanut butter cups over batter.
