Soft, chewy blondies studded with peanut butter filled chocolate morsels are the perfect addition
to your holiday dessert tray!
I've got cookies on the brain. No, seriously...I do! It's time for my annual cookie baking frenzy and I've been busy lining up all the recipes I want to make this year. Along with my traditional favorites, I'm creating some new recipes too.
Each holiday season my mom and I get together and bake dozens of cookies to give to friends and family. We each bring a few of our favorite recipes, then share all the cookies that we bake. My kids help too, but now that they are getting older it's not as much fun for them as it used to be. Of course they love to sample the cookie dough and the finished products though!
I recently bought a few packages of Nestle Toll House DelightFulls Filled Morsels and developed some new recipes to test out. Have you tried these morsels yet? They are ahhhmazing! Available in four different varieties, the flavor combos are endless!
Slightly larger than a regular morsel, these morsels allow you to put a special twist on traditional recipes like a cookie or a brownie. The DelightFulls filled morsels hold their shape when they bake, and can be used whole, cut in half, or coarsely chopped for a surprising delight of flavor and color in a baked good (not to mention popping them in your mouth right out of the bag!)
I chose the Milk Chocolate Morsels with Peanut Butter Filled DelightFulls for this blondie bar recipe, and I must say they turned out fantastic! A soft, chewy bar studded with the chocolate and peanut butter morsels is absolutely heavenly. I know these bars will be the perfect addition to my cookie platter this year!
