These Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Blondies are loaded with nuts from the crunchy peanut butter and sprinkled with chocolate chips throughout. The perfect PB & chocolate combination.
When I think of comfort food desserts, my mind instantly goes to brownies. They are easy to make in one pan, don’t take too many ingredients, and can be easily customized to everyone
So for my first #Choctoberfest2019 dessert, I knew it had to be blondies. Different from regular chocolate brownies, blondies have a sweet dough that lets the additional ingredients be the star. Also, using Imperial Brown Sugar leaves that sweet brown sugar taste.
How to make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Blondies:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
To a mixer or mixing bowl, add the peanut butter and stir to loosen it up. Add the eggs and melted butter.
Now add the salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Next, add the brown sugar. Then slowly fold the flour a 1/2 cup at a time.
Finally, add the chocolate chips. Stir to combine everything together.
Add the peanut butter brownie dough that’s loaded with chocolate chips into a 9×13 glass pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake for 35 minutes.
Let the blondies cool and then cut into 12 pieces and serve. And here you are…..

Have you ever had candy made out of saltine crackers? If not, you absolutely don’t know what you’re missing out on. Cracker Candy is the perfect combination of salty toffee, crispy crackers, and sweet chocolate. Top with your families favorite toppings for a treat that will please everyone.
I was so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Imperial Sugar for Choctoberfest! My little guy even got into the action layering the crackers onto the sheet pan. Imperial Sugar is the perfect ingredient for all the goodies we plan on making this holiday season. Create some lifelong memories when you bake with love and Imperial Sugar.
While holiday cookie baking can be fun, I have to admit again that I am not a really good baker. So easy recipes like this Cracker Candy, or better known as Christmas Crack, are a welcome addition to the holidays. It’s a recipe I know even I can throw together in a pinch.
There are also so many different ways to make it that guests won’t get sick of seeing it at all the holiday functions you attend with them.
Variations of Cracker Candy:
- White chocolate, dried cranberries and pecan pieces.
- Peanut butter chips, mini chocolate chips, and salted peanuts.
- Dark chocolate chips (halved with milk chocolate chips), crushed peppermint candies.
How to make Cracker Candy:
Start by covering a cookie sheet with tin foil then spray with oil. Now layer crackers evenly over the whole sheet.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a medium saucepan melt 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) then add 1 cup of packed Imperial Brown Sugar. Slowly bring to a boil for 4-5 minutes.
Pour over the crackers and put directly into the oven. Cook for 5 minutes.
Take the crackers out of the oven. Sprinkle the chocolate chips in a thin layer over the top of the crackers.
Once they are all melted put back into the oven for 2 minutes.
Add whatever toppings you like. I added nuts to all the crackers but shredded coconut to only half since not everyone in the house likes it.
Put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to harden the chocolate. Once the chocolate has hardened crack into pieces.
Tips for making Cracker Candy:
- Be patient and gentle as you spread the chocolate chips on the crackers. It does take a little time.
- You may have to crack some of the crackers in half to fill out the edges. The toffee mixture will fill in all the cracks.
And here you are….
