These are peanut butter milky way blondie cups. They are a blondie base, with peanut butter and bits of Milky Way bar mixed in, and cooked in a mini muffin pan. I stuck a slices of Milky Way on top after they baked, just because I had extras, and I thought it would be cute. I’m sure you could bake these in a rectangular pan and cut them up like regular blondies if you wanted to. But the cups are so much cuter!
I made these for a coworker’s birthday. We had a big show that day, and I knew this would make a lot and be easy for the crew to eat on the go. They were very popular. I barely got a couple for myself!!
The original recipe says to bake these in a regular muffin pan, but they are really rich, so I highly recommend making them in a mini muffin pan. If you make them in the mini pan, shorten the baking time (I think mine took 12 minutes, but every oven is different - check them after 10 minutes). Otherwise, these were super easy, and so good. Make them. Make them soon!
Peanut Butter Milky Way Blondie Cups
Source: The Sweets Life
Makes about 70 mini cups
10 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup Milky Way fun-sized candy bars, coarsely chopped (about 10 ten fun-sized bars), plus more for garnish if desired
- Preheat oven to 325. Line a muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
- Add butter and sugar to a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter is melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for for 5 minutes. Stir in the peanut butter until melted and set aside for another 5 minutes to cool.
- Whisk in the eggs and the vanilla extract with the peanut butter mixture. In a separate bowl, mix together salt, flour and baking powder. Add dry ingredients all at once to the wet ingredients, stirring just until incorporated. Mix in chopped candy.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffing pan, filling each cup about ¾ of the way full. Bake for 10-15 minutes for mini cups, until a toothpick comes out clean. Be careful not to overbake - err on the side of underbaking. Remove blondie cups and cool completely on a wire rack.
