As evidenced by the little bit of blur along the plate rim on the bottom left, I am apparently not quite grown up enough to have a set of unchipped plates. If I did act my age, though, I may not have appreciated these Peanuttiest Blondies as much as I did. With hunks of chocolate and peanuts, and lots of peanut butter, they tasted remarkably like a favorite candy bar of mine (which I ate way too many of on Sunday night, by the way). A nice crackly top and chewy on the inside gives them a homebaked feel. I think I’ll wrap one up and take it to the polls with me today.
For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Bakeologie, as it was Nicole’s choice for TWD this week. Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll! I’m interested to see if anyone else had this sinking middle (why? they were not underbaked–wacky, right?).
You are not alone in the chipped plate department. Seems like whenever I get ready to take a picture of a recipe, I realize I have used that one bowl/plate that’s chipped. Oh well…you’re blondie looks fabulous.
Mine had the sinking middle too! I love the chocolate and peanut butter combo but these just didn’t excite me for some reason. My husband loved them though, so I was happy to let him eat most of them :)
LOL on the chipped plate. Plenty of those around here as well, when the boys leave next year my plan is to toss them all out and get new ones. Teen boys are very clumsy as it turns out. Your bars look great…love the shape of them, like one of those Roman beds you see in museums…you know me, I appreciate things like that.
