Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

If you know me, you know I hate to bake. I actually despise it because I like things to move quickly in my kitchen. Well, I took on a request from my team to make something with Reece’s in it for National Reece’s Peanut Butter Day on May 18. Yes, it does exist! These were so simple to make I might just take back that statement about despising to bake! Try these…you won’t be disappointed. Happy Eating!
