News 9's Sassy Mama is sharing her recipe for peanut butter pretzel blondies.


  1. 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  2. 3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  3. 1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  4. 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  5. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. 2 1/2 cups mini pretzels, divided
  10. 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, divided
  11. 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  12. Cooking spray


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, creating a “sling” for easy removal from the pan.

2. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until the butter is fully incorporated.

3. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and salt, and mix until well combined.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients, adding 1/2 cup at a time, and mix until the flour is fully incorporated.

5. Stir in the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and pretzels until evenly distributed in the batter.

6. Pour the blondie batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly.

7. Sprinkle broken pretzels and a teaspoon of chips on top for added texture and flavor.

8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the blondies comes out clean.

9. Allow the blondies to cool completely, then cut them into squares.
