Turns out I couldn’t come up with a dessert to outdo the blondies from last year’s Superbowl party. So, I decided to take that recipe and give it a new twist.
With that, Reeses Super-Peanut Butter Blondies were born. Butter? Check. Peanut butter? Check. Reese’s Peanut Butter cups? Check. Call me crazy, but I think we might have a winner here.
And, I decided to throw in a little step by step action to help get you through this one. Although, the pictures could be slightly unnecessary as the recipe is pretty simple.
Reeses Super-Peanut Butter Blondies
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
2 cups mini Reeses peanut butter cups, chopped (I used about 15 cups)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a sauce pan, add butter and peanut butter.
Over medium heat, melt the butter and peanut butter and let the butter slightly brown. I realize this will be difficult to do since it has peanut butter in it. I let mine cook for about 3 minutes, until bubbles form.
Once the butter has browned, add sugar and butter to a mixing bowl. Cream together.
Cream together. Add in eggs, one at a time beating after each addition. Once eggs are blended in, add flour, salt, and vanilla. Combine.
While mixture is beating, pulse reese’s and almonds in a food processor until crumbs have formed. Add this mixture to the batter. Stir together.
Do yourself a favor and do not try the batter at this point. If you are anything like me, the baking process will completely stop and you will possibly make yourself sick off of blondie batter. Not a pretty sight.
If you have somehow resisted the urge to sample, pour batter into a greased 8×8 pyrex. Use a spatula to get the batter out of the bowl as it will be very sticky.
Smooth the top with a spatula and bake for about 28 minutes.
Waiting those 28 minutes is going to be very hard. Sadly, I have to wait 24 hours before I can eat these because they are going to the Superbowl party…. tomorrow.
This is a great recipe for the people who can’t be bothered looking at their food while watching the game. But, I will say I think the flavor of these is going to completely distract them, especially if they are peanut butter lovers like me. Lets be real, who isn’t a peanut butter lover?
Have a fantastic Superbowl weekend!
