Once Halloween has come and gone most people fall into one of two groups: the “I’m so glad I have so much extra candy left over” and the “what on earth am I going to do with this much left over candy?” groups. Halloween blondies are here for both groups. You don’t need a mixer and you could actually get away with using only one bowl and a spatula to whip these up. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
While yes, you could definitely make these brownies instead of blondies I personally fine that to be just a tad too sweet. The blondie is simple and straightforward. Perfectly light and chewy they really let the candy flavors shine through.
Base recipe inspired from Taste of Home.
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to top
1 1/2 cups chopped up candy/candy bars
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×13″ baking pan with non stick spray.
In a medium bowl mix together the brown sugar and melted butter. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully combined. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until there are no dry pockets of flour. Spread the batter into the baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with additional salt.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
