Peanut Butter Cup Blonde Brownie Recipe

February 05, 2012

When I saw this recipe from a past issue of Cooking Light magazine for Peanut Butter Cup Brownies, I knew that I had to make them. I have a weakness for anything peanut butter, but the fact that they are only 153 calories, 20 grams of carbohydrates and 7 grams of fat, I let this one slide. These brownies are so easy to make and make for parties (Super Bowl), Valentines and a great afternoon snack for the kids or dessert, of course. I used the new Reese’s cup minis, which worked perfectly. Enjoy!
