  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces
  • 1 cup mini peanut butter cups


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch pan with baking spray, and line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the blondies out. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, whisk the melted butter with white and brown sugar until combined.
  • Whisk in the peanut butter, the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Whisk until fully combined.
  • Using a spatula fold in the flour, baking powder, and salt. The batter will be very thick. Fold in Reese’s Pieces and mini peanut butter cups.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. If you have more Reese's pieces on hand sprinkle some on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, then test the blondies with a toothpick. Insert it into the center of the pan ad if it comes out with wet batter, bake longer, checking every 3 minutes. If there are only a few moist crumbs, the blondies are done. Do NOT overbake as they will taste a little dry if you do!
  • Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, lift them out of the pan, cut into bars and serve.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
