Peanut butter and chocolate are close contenders in my world of sweet treats. There are times where I can get such a craving for peanut butter that a spoon is the only thing I need to cure all foreseeable troubles.  But then there are those times where a nice little serving of creamy, dreamy chocolate is just the thing to make me swoon.  Though I have to say (I’m sorry, dear chocolate) peanut butter usually pulls ahead in my book.  These blondies feature my wonderful weakness and they are wonderfully wicked.

Peanut Butter Blondies

Ingredients
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
3/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F.  Spray an 8-inch square baking pan.

Stir together butter and peanut butter until well blended.

Stir in brown sugars.  Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir in chocolate chips.
