Peanuttiest Blondies (TWD)

November 2, 2010 – Comments (18)

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe for Peanuttiest Blondies is for all of you peanut butter fanatics.  If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know that I’m not a big fan of peanut butter desserts.  Still, I’ve been keeping an open mind (and palate) and trying out these recipes.

Nicole of Bakeologie is our hostess this week, and you can find the complete recipe at her blog.  Here are my recipe notes:

– I didn’t have a 9×9 pan, so instead used an 8×8 square pan, which resulted with some very thick bars.

– I hand chopped milk chocolate in lieu of the chocolate chips.   Trader Joe’s delicious Pound Plus Milk Chocolate came in handy here.

– There were no salted peanuts in my pantry, so instead added some more chopped milk chocolate.   Leftover Halloween candy could be another great substitution.

– Using the smaller pan,  my blondies required an additional 10-15 minutes to the recommended baking time.  

My hubs took the blondies to his workplace, and these treats were devoured in minutes.    The consensus at my hubs work –  a resounding YUM!   

I reserved a couple of pieces for myself.  Dorie shares that these blondies are oustanding with ice cream, so I did as she recommended.   Thick and chewy, these blondies are way tastier than your average peanut butter cookie.

    Mine are still gooey, even after an extra long bake.

    With all of that chocolate in there, it’s not a surprise they were gone so quickly. Yum…ice cream!

    Way to go! I do have a difficult time bake treats I don’t like, lucky for me I like everything but raisins. Ice cream looks like the perfect addition. Have a great day.

  7. Eliana says:

    Hmmm – that big scoop of vanilla ice cream looks like the perfect accompaniment Linda :)

  10. Beautiful photos – they look incredible with that ice cream! :)

    These certainly do look great! I love how you cut them into thinner bars rather than the traditional square.

  12. tia says:

    yours look thinner – and elegant-er :)

    Glad you tried these even though you don’t care for peanut butter. They look scrumptious nestled in there with the ice cream. Thanks for baking with me!

    Your blodies are gorgeous! You’re right that this is the recipe where you can add whatever treats are on hand.

  16. i like how thick they are–and i’m eating mine with ice cream tonight, for sure! i’ve been wondering about the TJ’s pound plus stuff…going to give it a try when my current stash runs low.

    • Linda says:

      Hi Steph – TJ’s Pound Plus chocolate bars are a fantastic bargain, and work perfectly in desserts like this one.

      When I make desserts where chocolate is the star, I prefer using the higher quality (i.e. more expensive) chocolates over the TJ’s brand. Just my two cents…

      Let me know what you think!
