Halloween Blondies

This recipe was inspired by one of Andy's and my coworker Katie's favorite candies—Reese's Pieces. I love blondies because they're so easy to make and go well with a variety of flavors. For these, I used a combination of Reese's Pieces, peanut butter morsels, and chocolate morsels (there were several partial packages in the pantry). The colors are reminiscent of Halloween, hence the name. These are a snap to make. The batter is very thick, so I think clean hands are the best tools for spreading it in the pan. Enjoy!

Halloween Blondies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 package Reese's Pieces
1/2 package peanut butter morsels
1/2 package chocolate morsels
Vegetable cooking spray

1. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
2. Combine flour and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until thoroughly blended. Stir in Reese's Pieces and next 2 ingredients.
3. Line a 13- x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Coat with cooking spray. Spread batter into pan.
4. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until done. Cool in pan, and cut into squares.
