Nutter Butter Blondies

A quick and easy sweet tooth fix or treat to take and share. Filled with Nutter Butter Bites and honey roasted peanuts, YUM!

Nutter Butter Blondies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 (8 oz) pkg Nutter Butter Bites
1 cup honey roasted peanuts

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 9″x13″ baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, mix thoroughly. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; mix into creamed mixture. Add Nutter Butter Bites and peanuts, mix until well combined. Spread into prepared pan (hand sprayed with non-stick spray works great!). Bake 25-30 minutes, or until pick inserted in center comes out clean (barely, do not over bake). I lay a piece of foil over after about 15 minutes of baking to keep blondies from browning too much, I want them to stay blonde ;o). Cool completely. Remove from pan, lifting out with foil onto cutting board, peel foil off foil and cut into desired shape and size pieces.

Nutter Butter Chocolate Cake

A quote from a favorite movie at our house comes to mind, “Pile it high and deep Mrs. M” (What About Bob). In the scene Bob Wiley was talking about salad, here I am talking Nutter Butter Chocolate Cake! If you are a chocolate & peanut butter fan, please make this cake!

Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and beat with electric mixer for at least 2 minutes. Add boiling water and mix until well incorporated. Batter will be thin.

Caramel Filled Peanut Butter Brownies

My name is Kristen and I am a chocoholic. Today I needed something chocolate (well, everyday I need something chocolate), so this is it. Inspired by a recipe Caramel-Filled Brownies, this is my twist. I think you want one…

Caramel Filled Peanut Butter Brownies

1 pkg (18.25 oz) dark chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup evaporated milk, divided
1 pkg (8 oz) Nabisco Nutter Butter Bites, coarsely chopped, divided
1 pkg (8 oz) Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Minis
1 pkg (14oz) caramels, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 350°. With pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into cake mix until crumbly. Add 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and mix well to make brownie dough. Mix in half of the chopped Nutter Butter Bites (about 1 heaping cup). Press 2/3 of the dough into a sprayed 9″x13″ pan to make brownies base. Bake for 12 minutes, or until set, cool on wire rack about 10 minutes.

Melt caramels and remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk together in microwave or in saucepan over low heat, stir until smooth. Set aside, to cool slightly.

Evenly sprinkle remaining chopped Nutter Butter Bites and Reeses Minis over baked brownie base. Pour melted caramel all over the top of Nutter Butters and Reeses Minis. Drop remaining brownie dough in little globs evenly over caramel. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool completely. Refrigerate a bit for easier cutting. Store at room temperature.
