Chocolate Peanut Butter blondies

It was a typical winter night and I was craving for something sweet, so I searched online for a basic blondie bar and then added peanut butter, chocolate chips and made it my own!

I loved them and my co-workers are loving it too. I made a HUGE batch of these. It makes for almost 24 bars (depending on how big you cut them). Here’s how I did it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off (you could also do 1 cup of oats for a more “bar” feeling OR make it Gfree by using King Arthur AP Gfree flour)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I added way more)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I added more because PEANUTS)
I added way more chocolate chips and peanut butter because I like to live on the edge, my dog Moe really enjoyed the smells, but disapproved at not getting any.

How to:

  1. Melt all of the butter (this time I zapped it in the microwave, but I have done it the stove top as well)
  2. Combine all of the sugars, vanilla and butter into a big bowl and with an electric mixer, mix everything together (if you want to go all “old-school” or kids are hyper of “bored, they can do this too).
  3. Mix in slowly. In batches, the flour. Do not be like me, who added a full cup all in one. I learned my lesson. Learn from Jose and add it maybe in 1/2 cups. Mix in with the low setting in your hand-held mixer, not at level 5 (like I did). Not good.
  4. Mix in the peanut butter and chocolate to your hearts content. I won’t judge. Throw it in there. Now mixing? I used my mixer and then used my fancy spatula with cute.
  5. BAKING IT: I used 2 8 inch pans lined with parchment paper. I baked it for 25-30 mins. Since I added more chocolate chips and peanut butter than stated, it took 35 mins. My sacrifice was rewarded.
  6. I served it with some ice cream and chocolate sauce on top. I put some whipped cream to because I couldn’t stop myself. (Again living on the edge).

I LOVED this. I may or may not be eating one right now (I am). They are exactly what I needed to satisfy my sweet tooth in this wintery day.

Cute spatula is cute.
End product
Moe disapproving that he couldn’t get any. He also smelled the whip cream. Don’t worry, he had his own treat!

They were a really strong peanut butter flavor (again, I added more than 1/2 cup) and they reminded me of the blondies I would get in Puerto Rico with my mom when I was in high school. Comment below what you think of these chocolate peanut butter blondies!
