Made these yesterday for Bob’s group of Young Men from church for their activity. They were delicious! They would make a great Halloween treat with the colorful Reese’s Pieces. It’s an “All You” recipe.
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I didn’t have any mini peanut butter cups so I upped this to 1 cup)
1 cup Reese’s Pieces
15 mini peanut butter cups, cut in half
1 Preheat oven to 350 or 325 if your cake pan is dark like mine. Spray a 9″ round cake pan with cooking spray for baking (the kind with flour in it).
2 Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
3 Beat butter, sugars and peanut butter until combined. Beat in vanilla and eggs until smooth. Add flour mixture, mixing just until thick dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips and candies. Press dough into prepared pan.
4 Bake until brown on top but still soft in center, 40 – 45 minutes. Let cool in pan 20 minutes. Run knife around edges of pan and then remove to cooling rack. Cut into wedges when cooled completely.
