Peanut Butter Blondies with Reeses Cups

Why do you never see peanut butter with white chocolate?  I’ve been wondering about this.  I see loads of milk chocolate with peanut butter, but rarely dark chocolate and even more rarely with white chocolate.  So when my friend Nina pointed out to me that there were Reese’s peanut butter cups with white chocolate shells, I was a bit curious!

They were quite a bit tastier than I expected, and to me, the baking possibilities were endless – but I had to do a blondie!

Of course, Beardy Fiance was grimacing – why do I have to make so many peanut butter based products?  Pshaw – I was having none of that!
