Is there ANYTHING better than peanut butter + chocolate??!
No. No there is not.
Which is why I made you fudgy, decadent, peanut-buttery blondies mixed with crunchy, creamy mini eggs! This is what dreams are made of.
The candy selection this time of year is just UNPARALLELED. Like, even better than Halloween in my opinion! And it’s a horrible, wonderful, terrible, beautiful thing. Hello, Reese’s Eggs. And Robin’s Eggs. And we just can’t get enough of those Cadbury Mini Eggs! Have you tried the dark chocolate ones? Those are definitely my favorite, but the colors! They’re kiiiiind of ugly. The milk chocolate ones are much prettier 😉
These peanut butter blondies are so insanely addicting and disappeared at our house right quick. They come together super fast & you only need one bowl! Just mix all those ingredients together, bake, and devour. I love easy recipes! Because that means you get to eat the fruits of your labor all the faster.
This is the perfect baking project if you have some mini eggs laying around the kitchen that you don’t know what to do with! You know, other than shoveling them into your mouth. Or eating them smushed onto a spoonful of peanut butter. Or sprinkling them on top of your bowl of popcorn.
- ¼ c unsalted butter, melted
- ½ c creamy peanut butter
- 1 c light brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 t vanilla
- 1 c all-purpose flour
- ½ t fine sea salt
- ½ t baking powder
- 1 c cadbury mini eggs (can sub chocolate chips or m&ms!)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a large bowl, mix together the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar with an electric hand mixer until combined. Add in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Then add in the flour, salt, baking powder, and mix until just combined. Fold in the mini eggs.
- Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray and spread the blondie batter into the dish.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden brown & a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. You want them to be just set in the middle but not overdone! We still want some gooey fudginess 🙂 Let cool before cutting into squares.
