Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blondie Recipe

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blondies — Enough Said

If you haven't yet gobbled up every last peanut butter cup from your Halloween candy stash, listen up. Normally we wouldn't bother fussing with perfection — eaten out of hand, Reese's iconic candy is near-unbeatable — but, here it's worth making an exception.

First, chop them up into little nuggets of peanut butter-chocolate bliss. (Be kind to yourself and chop one extra for snacking.) Next, fold the whole lot into salty, butter-rich blondie batter, and let it all marry under the oven's heat.

Let them cool, then slice the slab of blondies into bite-size pieces. Chewy, tender, and salty-sweet, these darlings won't last long; you've been warned.

Reese Peanut Butter Cup Blondie Recipe


  1. 16 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more, room temperature, for pan
  2. 1 cup (8 ounces) packed light brown sugar
  3. 1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) granulated sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups (10 ounces) all-purpose flour
  7. 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  8. 8 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with butter; line pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars until smooth. Whisk in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and salt; stir just until moistened. Fold in about 3/4 of the chopped peanut butter cups.
  3. Transfer batter to prepared pan and smooth top. Arrange the remaining peanut butter cups on top of dough.
  4. Bake until top of blondies are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Set pan on a wire rack and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang, lift cake from pan and transfer to a cutting board; cut into 16 squares. To store, keep in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 2 days.

I noticed there is no baking soda or baking powder listed. Is that correct? I hope so because I just put the pan in the oven. Please say yes!

I must make these and mail them immediately to my niece at University...these look like the perfect study break food, and PB cups are her absolute fave. Do you think these blondies will survive being mailed across country and still be fairly fresh, if I send them Priority?

3 things: 1. chrstne -- your comment is the best. i feel ya on that. 2. party -- your bars do look better than the originals! 3. finnlover (and others who don't want to or can't buy pb cups) -- you can make your own pb cups at home with three ingredients: peanut butter, powdered sugar, and chocolate chips/chunks. start by mixing the pb and powdered sugar together. at first, the mixture will be sticky. keep mixing until it gets un-sticky. you may have to keep adding powdered sugar until the consistency is right. then, shape the mixture into tsp-sized balls. melt the chocolate and dip the balls in one-by-one, put them on a foil-covered cookie sheet, and freeze them. there you go -- homemade (and probably healthier) pb cups.

Ha, when I saw that it was from Everyday Food, I thought "The ones I saw on Everyday Food were blondies with Reese's Pieces on top, weren't they?"...then I saw that you subbed in Reese's PB cups. They look delicious!!

Oh you're evil Party. These look so good there's no way I'm going to be able to resist making them, then eating all of them. I ran out over my lunch break and bought some Reese's cups, and Heath Bars as well. I'm going to do half-and-half since my husband doesn't like peanut butter. Of course, he'll eat one and I'll eat the rest!
