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.
- 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.
