Peanut Butter and Chocolate Egg Blondies

I may be on a peanut butter and chocolate kick.

Can you blame me?

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Egg Blondies

It’s only the best flavor combination out there.

I bought these Cadbury mini chocolate Easter eggs a while back with intentions on making something sweet for the blog. They sat on top of my fridge for over a week while I racked my brain on something awesome to create.

They had to sit on top of the fridge because if they were at eye level, they never would have made it into these blondies.

Then this past weekend I got inspired to use them in these delicious Peanut Butter and Chocolate Egg Blondies, and it’s a good thing I did. I went to reach for them on top of the fridge and realized they had been opened by my husband. He had been secretly sneaking eggs when I wasn’t looking!

The nerve.

Also on top of the fridge was a pack of Peeps.

I had been meaning to make a recipe using them, but alas, I feel that everyone is probably “peeped” out. Plus my kid’s have had their eyes on them since they arrived in our house, so I let them go to town. Obvi- my kids couldn’t wait and tried stealing one mid photo shoot.

These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Egg Blondies are incredibly rich and delicious. Blondies are the lighter (in color) version to their sister – The Brownie. The addition of peanut butter to this almost cookie-like bar pairs perfectly with the sweet chocolate eggs. If you can’t get ahold of the eggs, just use some chocolate morsels or even some M&M’s. Β Either way, these blondies will seriously rock your sweet tooth.

    Approximately how many does this recipe make? I’m baking for a couple of dozen people and am unsure how many batches I should do. Thanks! Looking forwarding to this.

    Those look delicious. And beautiful. And Easter-y. I would like to post this recipe on my facebook page, and also pin it to my board “Recipes I Need to Make”. For facebook, I’ll just (with your permission) put a link to the blog post and also mention I Wash You Dry in the comment section – I won’t put the actual recipe itself on my page. For Pinterest,I know it would link back to you automatically, if I used a photo from your page, but I can mention I Wash You Dry in the comment section of that.

    I know there are lots of issues right now on facebook with people either outright stealing recipes, or unwittingly sharing things that don’t have a link back to the original creator. I’m really worried about doing it right. Thanks!

    When I first started reading this post Shawn, my first thought was – how on earth did you let a bag of Cadbury chocolate eggs go untouched for a whole week!? I’m not sure I’d have the willpower even if they were out of my sight. πŸ˜‰ Well worth saving for these beauties though! PS. I’m glad you linked back up to your Guacamole Deviled Eggs – love that idea!

      It was hard to not think about them up there. So naturally I was totally miffed when I realized my husband was sneaking them! Haha, but it was all for a good cause! Thanks Jess! πŸ™‚
