Peanut Butter Cup Blondies


Honestly, I am stuffed to the gills right now and the last thing I feel like talking about are these peanut butter cup blondies.

But...I'll do it for you.

After a workday filled with food - breakfast pizza, plus a huge pumpkin whoopie pie courtesy of Elly's this afternoon, I frankly don't give a rat's you know what about another dessert right now.  Did I just say that out loud?

Write that down.

I know there are many of you out there that are wondering what to make for your kid's birthday party this weekend, for tailgating on Saturday or a food day at work tomorrow.  We'll here you have it folks.  Make these.  They will not disappoint.

Plus, they are easy.  You know I wouldn't give you anything too difficult.

Peanut Butter Cup Blondies
Adapted from this recipe
2 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 brown sugar
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. butter, melted and cooled
3 T. milk
1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
4 peanut butter cups, chopped
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips

Beat eggs and sugars together until smooth and creamy.  Add in peanut butter, butter and milk, mix well.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt, gently adding to mixture until just combined.  Fold in peanut butter cups and dark chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread batter into a greased 8x8 square pan/baking dish.  Bake for 25 minute or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool and cut into bars.

Serve with a glass of ice cold milk to wash down the evidence.

Let's see...what do I have coming up?  Stay tuned for these treats.
