Variations, Tips + Storing Info
Ways to mix it up these Reeses Pieces Bars:
- Add in chopped peanut butter cups
- Peanut butter chips alongside the Reeses Pieces and chocolate chips
- Add crushed and whole Reeses pieces to the batter to let flavor spread out more
Each box is 4 oz, so if you need ¾ cup, or 6 oz, you need a box and a half, but honestly 2 boxes would work just fine, you would just have a good amount of peanut butter in the blondie.
I don’t think I specified whether you should use crunchy or creamy peanut butter. I would personally use creamy to get that creamy and chewy blondie texture. If crunchy is all that you have on hand it would work too. It would just be a little bit of a strange texture.
STORE at room temperature in an air-tight container. They should last for about a week, any longer and they could go stale, or fall apart and become mushy gross.
FREEZE in an airtight container for 3-5 months.
You should make sure to use melted butter, and if you really want to make sure that these are moist and chewy you can add an additional egg yolk to the batter
