Peanut Butter Blondies

I haven’t baked in awhile. It’s been noticed by people. Kind of to the extent to where a bucket was put out for baking donations.

So this weekend I wasn’t entirely certain what I would want to make. Instead I focused on a ton of other things. We were able to check out Fitzgerald’s in Charlotte for a review on CLT Foodies. The food was teriffic. Plus I love an opportunity to find new food fun in Charlotte. 

Which was even better when we hit up Vivace in Charlotte for a birthday dinner! Sadly I didn’t take any pictures of that dinner. In between lunch and dinner we chilled. Aka I read a book, laid in the hammock, and took a nap. Basically a perfect day.

We also celebrated the weekend with Fate of the Furious and Waffle House. Oh, and I planted some flowers. Well, the boyfriend planted the flowers. I pulled weeds. Team effort!

But more importantly, what you’re here for, the blondies! I made blondies.

They were really easy!

Here’s what you need:

2 cups brown sugar

2/3 cup butter (softened)

3 eggs (whisked)

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup peanut butter M&M’s (chopped)

1/2 cup chocolate chips

8 Reese’s cups (regular size)

Here’s what you do:

  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. 
  • Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. 
  • Add in eggs and vanilla and stir until combined. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the baking powder and salt with the flour. 
  • Pour into the butter mixture and stir in the rest of the flour. 
  • Fold in chocolate chips and M&M’s.
  • Grease a 13×9 pan
  • Press 1/2 the dough into the pan with flour on your hands. 
  • Cut the reeses into small pieces and lay them on top of the dough. 
  • Place the remaining cookie dough on top of the reeses. I added extra m&ms on top!
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned. (I did 35 minutes) The dough should be soft in the center.
  • Enjoy!
