Calling all peanut butter lovers! These delicious blondies are LOADED with peanut butter butter flavor and studded with sweet Reese’s Pieces – one of my absolute favorite candies. The Reese’s Pieces add a nice crunch to these soft and chewy blondies. I love a good texture contrast in my baked goods – especially one from Reese’s Pieces.
I hope you enjoy these. They’ve become a staple in my kitchen!Print
