I don’t know about you guys, but we are on sugar overload at our house. Each week I try and bake homemade goodies for the kids to have in their lunches at school throughout the week and this time of year I find myself wondering what to do with leftover Halloween candy. Do you have a few leftover Halloween candy recipes? Last night I whipped up our favorite Halloween blondies recipes. They are one of the easiest and fastest ways to use up a lot of that leftover Halloween candy. You can make these with your favorite brownie recipe too, but since most of the leftover Halloween candy is chocolate, I decided to go blonde. You can whip these up in about 35 minutes from start to finish.
WHAT CANDY WORKS BEST IN LEFTOVER HALLOWEEN CANDY BLONDIES?
I think my kids are crazy, because on Halloween night they always eat the suckers, nerds and sour patch kids…what?! Who’s kids are these anyway? 😉 Lucky for me, our Halloween leftover candy is usually chocolate. Anything chocolate, caramel and the like works best in these Halloween Candy Blondies. Candies like Nestle Crunch Bars, Milky Way, Snickers, Almond Joy and Kit Kat Bars etc. Chop them up into bite size pieces to mix into your batter. I used three snack size packages of M and M’s to sprinkle over the top to add some fun color to these Halloween blondies.
- 2 Cups + 4 TBS All Purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1½ Cups Brown Sugar, packed
- ⅔ Cup Softened
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 cups of Chopped Chocolate Candy Pieces
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch pan.
- Beat brown sugar, butter, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until creamy; beat in eggs. Whisk 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl.
- Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture until batter is just combined; fold in candy-coated milk chocolate pieces, peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered crispy peanut butter candy, and milk chocolate bars, reserving 1 Cup to spread on top of blondies. Press batter into prepared baking pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
If you can’t even bear the idea of Halloween candy leftover recipes right now, here’s a tip…freeze that leftover Halloween candy and make these Halloween blondies in a month. They make a great movie night snack with all of your favorite movie treats baked right in.
I hope you enjoy these gooey and delicious bars! Be sure to have some milk on hand!
