Reese’s Pieces Blondies
Reese’s Pieces Blondies are my favorite chewy blonde brownie recipe. This easy dessert recipe has the perfect compliment of peanut butter and chocolate packed into these scrumptious blondie bars!
This Reese’s Pieces Blondies recipe is a recipe that I’ve been holding on to for a while now. Yes, I’ve been holding out on you, I have to admit it! Please don’t hate me too much. You will love me again once you try these blondies.
This recipe is one I have had written down in my book of recipes for years and years. I have no idea where it originally came from but it has been my “go to” dessert for a while now. Anywhere I take these bad boys I get compliments galore and everyone raves about them. So, it’s time. It’s time for me to spread the deliciousness to all of my faithful Wishes and Dishes readers.
The original recipe says to add chocolate chips but I added Reese’s Pieces one time and have never looked back. They are best this way, in my opinion! You can add any kind of baking chips in these, as well. That’s what I love about them – how versatile they are.
I have made them with milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, and a mixture of those, as well. You name it and I’ve made them that way.
Being more of a fan of “vanilla” over chocolate (gasp!), I prefer these immensely to the chocolate version of brownies. My other favorite are my Butterscotch Blondies. I love blondies in any way, shape or form, but these are my all-time favorite.
They can be mixed up in a jiffy, taste awesome, and are perfect for occasions when company drops by unexpectedly and you need to whip something up in a hurry. I know you will love them as much as I do!

Cookie Butter White Chocolate Blondies
White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M&M Blondies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
- 2 and ¼ cups light brown sugar, packed
- 2 and ½ cups flour
- 2 and ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 large eggs
- 1 and ¼ cups Reese's Pieces (more or less depending on how much you prefer)
- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Set aside.
- Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Add in brown sugar and vanilla, mix together to blend well. Take off heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
- Mix in eggs (you can do this all in that same saucepan) with the melted butter and brown sugar, one at a time. Beat well after adding each egg (I use just a wooden spoon, sometimes a whisk).
- Slowly add in dry ingredients, mixing as you add. Stir in Reese's Pieces. Batter may seem thick, but that's OK.
- Spread batter in a WELL GREASED (so that the Reese's don't stick) 13 x 9 glass pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Check for doneness by sticking a knife or toothpick into the middle to see if it comes out clean. Do not let them get overdone as they will lose their softness. (Some ovens may take longer than 25 minutes, some shorter. So just keep an eye on them. I like mine a little gooey on the inside.)
- Store in an airtight container and they will stay fresh for a couple of days.
YUM!! I am drooling just looking at these. Thank you for posting this gem, I will be adding it to my list of goodies to make 😀
Thanks, Christina! They really are a gem, I must say 🙂
These sound so delicious! I actually prefer blondies to brownies and I LOVE Reese’s pieces!!
Blondies are WAY better 😉 I’m glad you agree!
Oooh such a great recipe! Yay reeses pieces!
Thanks, Kayle! Reeses Pieces are my fave 🙂
I love any dessert that incorporates Reese’s Pieces and these are definitely no exception! These look delish!
They make anything better!
peanut butter reese’s pieces blondies were my first recipe ever on my website! I need to try reese’s pieces in a regular blondie now. they are one of my favorite candies. 🙂 And so much fun to bake with!
I just looked up that recipe on your page! The addition of peanut butter must be sooo good!
Hoooow in the world did you hold onto this for so long without sharing it and screaming about it from the rooftops? HELLO, Reese’s Pieces own my heart. I LOVE THEM. And anything with “blondie” in the title has won me over for liiiife.
I was hesitant to share it because I wanted the recipe all to myself! haha!
I love, love, love blondies and Reese’s Pieces. I have made a bunch of things with Reese’s Pieces but never blondies! I’ll have to give these a try! They look scrumptious.
Thanks for commenting, Laura! I hope you give these a try!
Love blondies! They look so good, I can eat the whole batch 🙂
Thanks, Danny! I can too…and almost did 🙂
I agree with your choice to make blondies rather than brownies! They are the best! Like a big chocolate chip cookie.
Exactly! I’m glad you agree 🙂
Reese’s Pieces are definitely better than chocolate chips! I wouldn’t make these any other way either =)
Thanks, Peggy! I’m glad you feel the same 🙂
I am officially stalking your recipes, they all look so tasty 🙂
This is definitely my favourite for now 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog and loving yours!

Thank you so much!! Stalk away! 😉
They are in the oven as I bake them. The batter tasted pretty good, if that says anything!
I made a half recipe and put in 8 by 8 dish. Will let you know how they turn out.
In the oven as I write this! ***
The batter is amazing!
Just made these. Didn’t turn out at all like the recipe. I followed the recipe to a T. You might want to add to add the Reese’s after sometime after it has baked, instead of just pouring them into the batter. Mine got all stuck to the bottom of the pan. I’m disappointed because I was making these for a friends birthday. Guess I’ll be stopping at whole foods.
I’m so sorry Jess! I’ve actually made these more than any other of my recipes and I’ve never had a problem! I’ve also had many people tell me they made them and they turned out. Did you grease the pan? They shouldn’t stick to the bottom if you grease the pan well. Again, sorry they didn’t turn out.
Yes, I did grease the pan. :(. Maybe I’ll try addig the Reese pieces later next time! The blondie part was good though!
Again, Jess – so sorry!! Or maybe if you coat the Reeses with flour to prevent them from sinking?
I have a question, when should I add the vanilla? And do I add everything into the saucepan? Oh and one more question, should I be using a hand mixer or just a spoon to mix it. Sorry for all the questions but I’m a beginner cook/baker 🙂
Hey girl! I updated the directions and answered all of your questions in them 🙂 Thank you SO much for noticing that I left out the adding of the vanilla. Everything is fixed now! I hope you like them and please ask all of the questions you want to. I appreciate it!
