Chocolate And Peanut Butter Filled Peanut Butter Blondies
The bars are like two giant soft peanut butter cookies with a chunky sweet layer of bittersweet and peanut butter chips in the center. I worked hard to savor each bite as the intense peanut butter flavor melded with the rich chocolate from the heat in my mouth.
In the instructions I talk about dropping small dollops of batter on top of the chips - if you try the recipe, be sure to give this a go. The top spreads out as they bake, but they remain bumpy on top with some open areas where you can see the chips trying to poke out. They may be a little tough to test for doneness, so underdone is better than overdone here - you can place them in the refrigerator to firm up, if needed, to make cutting easier.
