Do you all like peanut butter? I happen to love peanut butter — what’s not to love? And now that we know E is allergic to walnuts (but strangely not peanuts), I feel an odd urge to give her peanut butter even more often — kind of like…forget you walnuts, we’re having PEANUT butter.

Yeah…I have issues.

Update: Turns out N is allergic to tree nuts and peanuts. So…now we don’t have any of it. 

Scattered on marble countertop are blondies, Reese's pieces, and peanut butter cup minis.

I teamed up with Reese’s for a fun REESE’S® Baking Bracket Challenge. In the spirit of college basketball tournaments, the challenge was to create a game day recipe which was placed in a bracket in competition with other great recipes.

These rich and decadent blondies include mini REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups as well as Reese’s Pieces for twice the peanut butter love.

This blondies recipe has quickly become a new favorite. They are moist, rich, and flavorful. Everything you want in a brownie’s buttery brown sugary sister. Next time I make them, I’m going to throw a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top of the hot blondie. Because…well…why not.

Even if you don’t have vanilla ice cream in your freezer (I never keep it in my freezer because if I did, I’d be eating it on a daily basis), blondies are phenomenal with a tall glass of ice cold milk or a steaming hot cup of coffee.
