Today marks the 100th recipe on Kitchen Gidget! Although this blog has had a slow start over the past 2 years, I am thoroughly excited for 2016 and the things to come! But today, I wanted to look back and revive this recipe for Peanut Butter Chip Blondies that I originally posted in 2013… The photo from back then seriously makes me cringe, but these blondies are the best I’ve ever had and deserving of a makeover.

They are so good that most of the time we double the recipe. An 8×8 pan just doesn’t cut it when half of the bars are always devoured within 5 minutes of coming out of the oven! Blondies are often paired with chips – milk chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch – but the peanut butter and brown sugar combination is positively magical. Fresh and warm from the oven while the peanut butter chips are still gooey is my favorite way to eat them.

    I made these today, they are very good! The bottom part turned out more like cake though, so I'm not sure what I did wrong. I made it in a 9x13 pan, so I doubled the recipe including 4 eggs total. Maybe that is the difference? They are still yummy but I was hoping for a more chewy type bar if that makes sense? I could have over mixed it too.... I'm sure it was operator error, haha! I'll try again, but if you have any advice, let me know. My kids and husband will still love them! Thanks! Shannon

    To keep things chewy instead of cakey, measure the flour carefully by spooning it into the cup and then leveling off. Don't overmix. Hope that helps next time!

    So fast, so easy, so yummy! I had an idea to brown the butter, which I think probably made the caramel flavor even more pronounced. Love this recipe!

    Hi! These look yummy! How long do you bake them if you double the recipe and bake in a 9x13 pan?

    To double start at 25 minutes and check from there. They can overcook quickly. They are soo goood!
