Need a treat, but think you don’t have time for homemade? Think again! Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies take (at most) only 45 minutes start to finish!
Favorite things often have a partner. Like chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, gin and tonic. My favorite flavor combination, hands down, until the end of time is (likely to no one’s surprise!) Peanut Butter and Chocolate. I blame Reese’s, of course – “Two great tastes that taste great together.” So true, Reese’s, so true. I can hardly resist anything that is PB+C. Over the years, though, I’ve gradually moved to darker chocolate, and salty peanut butter, as opposed to sweet, so many of my recipes reflect that. These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies are no exception – I use Bittersweet Chocolate and all-natural (but salted!) Peanut Butter. But the best part is how little time you will need to spend making them.
It’s really just a quick mix, starting with melted butter. No electic mixer, just a spoon or a spatula, a prepared pan, and a few minutes time. You could even portion the dough out into cookies, but really, with PB+C at stake here, why wait? I found this recipe on 365 days of Crockpot and Pressure Cooking, and the only change I made was to increase the amount of Peanut Butter, because, why not?
So if you, like me, are a slave to Peanut Butter and Chocolate, you’ll need to try these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies – they truly meet the need head-on and with very little time or effort. But first, I’d be curious to hear what your favorite food combinations are – savory or sweet – let me know! What are your “two great tastes…”? I’m especially game for a few I’ve never even heard of! Enjoy!
