How did last night go? We’re talking Halloween not Sunday Night Football (though the Cowboys did win). But as far as Halloween candy goes, how did you, we mean, YOUR kids do? If you have any leftover candy and a few staple pantry ingredients, you’ve got dessert for tonight with this recipe. Of course, we are assuming you have leftover candy…
Leftover Halloween Candy Blondies Recipe
Adapted from/photo courtesy www.justataste.com
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup assorted Halloween candy, roughly chopped
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing it to hang over the sides. Coat the paper with cooking spray.
In a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, whisk together melted butter with sugar and light brown sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Remove bowl from stand mixer and stir in flour, baking powder and salt, just until incorporated. Stir in ½ cup of the assorted Halloween candy.
Pour batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top, then sprinkle remaining ½ cup of Halloween candy over top of batter.
Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let pan cool completely, then remove blondies using the parchment paper overhang. Cut into 16 squares and serve.
