Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

It doesn't get much better than a peanut butter and chocolate combination. Cookies, cakes, pies or brownies - I love them all! These blondies are so easy to make and I can almost guarantee that these will be your new favorite dessert (at least for this week)! Creamy peanut butter and melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate chips make these cake like blondies pretty much perfection . I will say, that my husband and I think they are best served warm. Make it an extra special treat and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
