Reeses peanut butter blondies for Easter

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 3 eggs (whisked)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup flour, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter M&M's (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4-5 Reeses peanut butter eggs

Instructions

  1. 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 1 cup of flour. Pour into the butter mixture and stir in the rest of the flour. Fold in chocolate chips and M&M's.
  2. Grease a 13x9 pan and lightly dust with flour or line with foil. 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. You can add extra M&M's on top if you'd like. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned. Oven temps will vary. Test with a tooth pick. The dough should be soft in the center.
  3. Allow bars to cool and then enjoy with a cold glass of milk!

Reeses peanut butter blondies Easter dessert

Make sure to not over cook these. They will harden up some once they cool. You want them to be soft in the middle with a little crisp on the outside. MMM…so good!

Enjoy!

Happy baking! XO -Jamielyn

    I love your recipes! Just tried the blondie one, but confused w/the 2.5 cups in the recipe list and then the 1 cup in the directions. I used 2.5 cups and ended up w/blondie bread. Which isn’t a bad thing….

      The directions say add 1 cup of flour and then in the next step it says add the rest…..

        Hi Becky! You will be adding 2 1/2 cups of flour total, sorry for the confusion!

    • Jamielyn replied on May 14th, 2014 at 1:16 am

      Hi Judy! Sorry for the confusion. It is 2.5 cups but it should be more of a brownie texture! Blondie bread would be yummy though! :)
