Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies

Is the leftover Halloween candy staring you down? It’s time to take control and do something with that candy. May I suggest a pan of Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies? And if you can’t find enough Rolos in your Halloween candy stash, go to the store and buy some. These blondies are worth the extra trip to the store. And if you are embarrassed that you are buying candy so soon after Halloween, wear your Halloween costume. No one will know it’s you:)

These blondies are easy to whip up. I love one pan treats! Especially when peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel are involved. I didn’t chop up the Rolos because I wanted big hunks of chocolate and caramel in my blondies. If you prefer a smaller burst of chocolate and caramel, feel free to chop up the Rolo candies before mixing them into the peanut butter blondie batter. Either way, they will be good.

The peanut butter blondies are thick, soft, and loaded with chewy chocolate caramel candy. Good thing the recipe makes a large pan because you are going to want more than one of these Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies.

Looking for other ways to use up your Halloween candy? Here are a few recipes to help you out:

Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies

Yield: 16 large blondies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

Peanut butter blondies dotted with Rolo candies.


1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Rolo candies, unwrapped


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch pan and set aside.

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter, until creamy and combined. Set mixture aside to cool.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

4. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the peanut butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared dry ingredients, and stir until batter is smooth. Stir in the Rolos.

5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, spreading the batter evenly to the edges of the pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden and the edges are slightly browned. Remove blondies from oven and place them on a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve.

Note-you can chop up the Rolos if you want, but I like biting into a big hunk of chocolate caramel candy.

    Love blondies and would love to help you eat a few of these…PB baked into them is the best. As I recall Josh can’t have it so you’re the lucky girl with these :)

    Chocolate, caramel, peanut butter? YUMMMM!!! What a great combination in a blondie!

  3. Kristine — November 2, 2012 @ 6:36 am

    Looks scrumptious but the peanut butter could literally kill me. Yes, I’m one of those with the Epi-pen. Wonder if there is a way too make these without peanut butter. And yes, I’m allergic to all nuts so the other substitutes that I know of won’t work either.

    Fantastic :) I really enjoy making (and eating) bars. They come together so quickly. I actually saved a couple hersheys with almonds to throw into a batch of bars! Rolos must be just awesome

  5. You have to stop the peanut butter kick, your killing me here! :) You keep posting all these yummy PB recipes that I have to break down and make one or two or three!!! Have a great weekend!!

  10. HeatherChristo — November 2, 2012 @ 11:18 am

    Awesome maria! I don’t have Rolo’s left, but maybe I will chop up some of the kids other stuff to stick in there. YUM!

  11. Lucy Lean — November 2, 2012 @ 11:41 am

    I love the notion of popping on the Hallowe’en costume as a disguise in November!

  12. Aimee @ ShugarySweets — November 2, 2012 @ 1:50 pm

    Oh my, you had me at Rolo. These look awesome!!!

  13. kelley {mountain mama cooks} — November 2, 2012 @ 2:00 pm

    I’m on candy overload and can’t trade candy for these- it would only make my sugar consumption worse! I will, however, save the recipe to use later on when I’m in need of a sugar fix!

  14. Rachael {SimplyFreshCooking} — November 2, 2012 @ 2:06 pm

    Totally perfect sweet treat. I’m not going to stop thinking about these until I make them. Looks like I’m going to have to pull out the ol’ costume and head to the store! LOL

  15. I love blondies. These look amazing with the peanut butter and the caramel. I don’t think we got any rolos this year :( But adding in some Snickers sounds good too!

  16. Brian @ A Thought For Food — November 2, 2012 @ 2:26 pm

    Thankfully we didn’t buy any candy for Halloween (we turned our lights off and tried to ignore the kids outside… just kidding, we love them. But, seriously, we ignored them).
    This blondie recipe looks killer!

  17. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes — November 2, 2012 @ 2:43 pm

    LOVE rolos…and just happen to have a bunch in my cupboard right now :)

  18. Joanne — November 2, 2012 @ 3:04 pm

    The ooey gooey caramel in these sounds just perfect with the naturally caramelly blondie flavor!

  19. Lori @ RecipeGirl — November 2, 2012 @ 4:12 pm

    I dream about Rolos… these are yummy!

  20. Kiran @ — November 2, 2012 @ 5:13 pm

    All I can think about now, is peanut butter. Mmmm…

  21. Katie @ Blonde Ambition — November 2, 2012 @ 5:19 pm

    I think I enjoy the baked goods after Halloween more than I enjoy Halloween!

  31. susan — November 5, 2012 @ 1:03 pm

    Rolos have always been my favorite – these would be dangerous!

  32. Peanut butter BLONDIES? Yum. It’s a little unfortunate I don’t have leftover candy to use up. I’d actually have to buy some, which seems like a shame, this close to Halloween!

  33. Shannon — November 7, 2012 @ 10:50 pm

    I didn’t have Rolos, but I had a bunch of Reese’s peanut butter cups leftover from Halloween. I chopped them up and used them instead of Rolos. The Blondies are moist and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe–and way to use up my Halloween leftovers!

    I would like to make these for a bigger crowd. Can I just double up the measurements ? What would be the best baking dish to use? Could i use one of those aluminum baking containers ?

    I can’t wait to make these. These are my husband’s favorite candies. But he hates PB. How do you think I can omit the pb from this recipe successfully?
    No need to chop up rolos, just get the mini rolos! And for those who don’t like caramel (gasp) subsitute the rolos with the reese’s pb cups minis. I don’t mean “fun size” either that you get at halloween. I’m talking about the bags of the minis.

  39. Kristen Daukas — December 30, 2012 @ 12:10 pm

    Oh my… and lucky me.. I just happened to find a bag of rolo’s stashed away in the Rooster’s drawers so I have ALL the ingredients!! These babies are getting made today!
