About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Here's the Dish: Peanut Butter and Heath Bar Blondies

For Thanksgiving, my job was to bring dessert. I baked the traditional pies that everyone loves ~ well, almost everyone, that is. There are a few family members who aren't crazy about pie. To please them, I baked these decadent brownies. Can I just tell you ~ they were sublime!! Everyone loved them, pie lovers and non-lovers alike. The below recipe makes a big pan of them, so you'll have enough for everyone and extras to keep for yourself ;)
Peanut Butter and Heath Bar Blondies
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup peanut butter chips
3 tablespoons heavy cream
3 coarsely chopped Heath bars (the full size bars)
1/2 cup finely chopped unsalted peanuts
Preheat oven to 325*F
Grease and flour a 18 x 12 x 1-inch jelly roll pan.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and the peanut butter until fluffy.
Add the sugar and beat until smooth.
Add the eggs and the vanilla extract and mix well.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt and beat until well incorporated.
Spread the batter evenly into prepared pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into center of pan comes out with moist crumbs attached.
Cool to room temperature
To prepare the topping:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the peanut butter chips and the cream, stirring until smooth. Drizzle the peanut butter mixture decoratively over the cooled blondies. Sprinkle the Heath Bars and the peanuts on top. Allow to cool to room temperature, or overnight, before cutting and serving.
