Peanut Butter Blondies with Peanut Butter M&Ms

I have a serious sweet tooth. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to indulge that sweet tooth as much as I would’ve liked this Halloween. But this dessert more than makes up for it: Peanut butter blondies with peanut butter M&Ms. Need I say more? No, no I don’t. So here it goes—a quick and easy treat that erases the age-old question: Cookie or candy? It’s an AND world, people, and this recipe is proof.

½ cups unsalted butter
2 cups brown sugar
½ cups creamy peanut butter
2-½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-½ cup Peanut Butter M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar, stirring until smooth. When it is smooth, remove from heat and add the peanut butter. Allow to cool while combining the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the eggs to the brown sugar and peanut butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the mixed dry ingredients and stir until combined. It will be a thick, smooth batter. Pour into the prepared baking dish and top with peanut butter M&Ms, pressing them down into the batter. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow them to cool in the pan before cutting into bars.
