Chocolate And Peanut Butter Filled Peanut Butter Blondies

Chocolate And Peanut Butter Filled Peanut Butter Blondies (Adapted from Hershey's)

12 tablespoons peanut butter
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons vanilla soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix in egg, milk and vanilla until well combined.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Mix into creamed peanut butter until combined.

Place half of the mixture into a 9" baking dish coated with nonstick spray. Scatter bittersweet and peanut butter chips over the top. Drop small dollops of the remaining batter over the mixture to cover the top.

Bake until lightly browned and set - about 20 to 30 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting.

  1. Those look great. If you don't mind me asking how do you get such a clean cut. Your brownie/bar type recipes certainly come out looking better than mine. Do you line the pan with parchment first? It seems that whenever I try to remove brownies from the pan (cut into pieces wih a knife and then remove with the help of a spatula) -- never is clean cut and often get squooshed a bit when removing. Does your brownie recipes flip out like a cake is supposed to.

    Love your blog and your pictures are incredible.


  2. Anon - I would usually line the pan with foil and just lift out the brownies - this makes cutting and getting them out of the pan so easy!

  3. Hi -

    I've just discovered your blog and I'm not even sure if you'll be checking posts that are this old, but...if you do, can I just use regular milk instead of the soy milk? And would it be the same amount? I'm in Kenya so getting soy milk would be a bit of a challenge :)

    I think that your blog looks great - I'll enjoy the recipes you post.


  4. Hello Anon in Kenya!

    You can certainly use regular milk and use the same amount in the recipe!

  5. Hello, love your page. I'm from England and we can't get peanut butter chips here. What would you suggest as an alternative? Blobs of peanut butter? Thanks, Emily

  6. Anon in England - Since the texture of peanut butter is nothing like the chips, I would probably not make that substition. Maybe just add more chocolate chips?

  7. Thanks for the tip! I made them last night and they are very good... my first attempt at one of your recipes and I look forward to trying out more. Emily

  8. Emily - Glad you liked them!
