Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies are spectacular. Who doesn’t love those amazing Reese’s peanut butter cups? Well try adding them to a delicious shortbread dough and you have A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! My husband found little mini Reese’s peanut butter cups that come in a package unwrapped. They are so easy to use in recipes. No fussing with removing the wrappers or muffin papers, so I chopped them up super fast. But if you have leftover Halloween or Christmas candy, those will work perfectly fine too. I cut each of those little, tiny Reese’s cups in quarters, but the regular size peanut butter cups will need to be cut in eighths or more!

I was busy the month of December baking, baking and more baking for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. I did it in two stages. The first couple of weeks were spent baking goodies for John’s work place and our neighbors. The next week or so I baked goodies for our church office, staff, elders and Sunday school class friends. These jewels were part of that second batch of baking.

I used one of my favorite shortbread doughs tried every kind of combination including: Peppermint, Heath Toffee Bars, Chocolate & Vanilla Chips, White Chocolate and Cranberries, Hershey’s NuggetSnickers, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. All were so delicious. I even had one guy tell me how he enjoyed the different flavors from the same basic dough. I baked a few different cookies to add to all the shortbread style blondies and everyone loved our cookie baskets this year.

If you’re looking for a dynamite and delicious bar-type cookie for your next potluck or party, then you’ve got to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies. They’re relatively easy to make if you purchase the unwrapped Reese’s cups. The smells of chocolate and peanut butter will delight your heart! Prepare to be WOWed. 🙂
