Serves: 20-25 blondies
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped Milk Way candy bars (mini or regular sized)
  • ½ cup chopped salted peanuts
  • sea salt, for sprinkling (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line and/or grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk together the flour and cocoa powder and set aside. In the bowl of your mixer, beat together the brown sugar and eggs until well combined, about 3 minutes, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add in the butter, peanut butter, honey and vanilla and beat until combined, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add in the flour mixture and beat until just moistened. Fold in the chopped Milky Ways and peanuts.
  3. The batter will be thick, so use greased hands or a greased wooden spoon to spread the batter into your prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with sea salt, if you like. Bake for 30 minutes, then cover with foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes or so, until set (this keeps the top from browning too much). Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. These will keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week.
