Reece’s Peanut Butter Blondies

Reece’s Peanut Butter Blondies

Blondies are rich, sweet dessert bar. It resembles a traditional chocolate brownie but is made with flour, brown sugar, eggs, baking powder, baking soda and butter. Blondies are said to date back all the way to the 1800s when using chocolate in baking was not a norm. I believe that blondies are best baked chunky, which is why I have loaded these with Reece’s Pieces and mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. Here is my recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Blondies.

For these blondies, I used soft light brown sugar. This type of brown sugar is difficult to find in South Africa; however, it is possible! Natura Sugars has a soft light brown sugar that is moist, has a beautiful fudgy flavour, and is completely natural. Their unrefined sugars are cultivated in Mauritius, so they are 100% non-GM! I was so happy to find this sugar in Clicks, as it means that I can make all of those incredible American recipes that need this type of brown sugar for the flavour and texture.

This recipe is really easy to make as it is not fussy or delicate at all. It also doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare; however, it is advisable to mix the butter and the sugars for those few minutes instead of rushing it. Right at the end, fold the peanut butter candy in the batter until it is combined. You can add any type of candy in the blondies, and you can also add as much as you want!

I really love how soft and chewy these blondies are. Although no peanut butter is added into the batter, the Reece’s candy adds enough of a delicious peanut butter flavour. These would also be amazing with different types of chocolate chips (I love the ones from Woolworths).

      Thank you! There is no real peanut butter in it so the flavour only comes from the Reece’s candy. I think you’d still like it! x
