Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Blondies

I have had this recipe in my files to try since October. They are dense and delicious!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Blondies


10 tablespoon (1 1/4 sticks) butter, melted and cooled
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup Reese's Pieces we used mini Reese's pieces
15 miniature peanut butter cups, cut in half We used full sized, quartered

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter bottom and sides of a 9-inch cake pan Beth used a 9 x 9 square pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, beat butter, both sugars and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until combined. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat in vanilla and eggs until smooth. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture, mixing just until a thick dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips, Reese's Pieces and peanut butter cups. Press dough into prepared pan.

Bake until brown on top but still soft in center, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes. Run a sharp knife around edges of pan; transfer cake to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before cutting into wedges and serving.
