Moist mouth watering bars topped with rich peanut butter frosting .These yummy treats disappear in my home. If you like, reserve a few of the chocolate chips to sprinkle on top for decoration.

  • In a large bowl, cream together 3/4 cup of butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and yolk one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and 6 tablespoons peanut butter. Blend in the sifted ingredients and stir in the chocolate chips. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool completely before frosting.

  • To make the frosting, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of butter and 1 cup peanut butter together in a medium bowl. Mix in the confectioners sugar until smooth, then gradually stir in milk until a spreadable consistency is reached. Cut, serve and enjoy!

There are excellent. I did not make the frosting though I thought it would be too sweet for my taste. The bars themselves are very good and have a nice texture. I will make these again. Read More

Every Monday night I bring a cake or something sweet for Monday Night Football. I was in the mood for a brownie, but decided blondies would be a more unexpected treat. Found this recipe and gave it a shot - very easy to put together. When I served it, the entire batch was gone within minutes and people clamored for more. Three people asked for the recipe - and they NEVER bake.... Read More

A very good recipe if you're a peanut butter cup fan. Add a little more white sugar and peanut butter if you don't plan on frosting them. Have plenty of cold milk on hand! Read More

I have tried other Blondie recipes and my family and I have always been disapppointed in them until now.I read the other reviews before trying the recipe and was a little hesitant at first. There was no need to be they came out wonderfully. These are moist and delicious and have a great peanut butter flavor.Perhaps the ones who said they were dry and tasteless overcooked them? These are a truly decadent cookie.I will be making them again. Read More
