Candy Bar Blondies
These candy bar blondies are so delicious and indulgent, and loaded with all of your favorite treats!
Leftover Halloween candy has never been a problem at my house, since everyone who lives here has a pretty extreme sweet tooth and would eat candy all day if I let them, but if you do happen to have that problem, these candy bar blondies are for you! Or… if you just like to eat over the top delicious treats, these candy bar blondies are for you. Or if you like super easy (but still totally delicious) desserts, these candy bar blondies are for you. (They’re pretty much for everyone, unless you don’t like chocolate, or cookies, or deliciousness.) They are so easy to make, with only around 15 minutes of hands on time, and loaded with all of your favorite treats!
I mixed Kit Kats, Reese’s cups, Snickers, Twix, Mini M&M’s, and chocolate chips into my blondies, but feel free to use whatever candy you like, as long as it’s about two cups of chocolate total. I like to mix 3/4 of it into the dough, then sprinkle the remaining 1/4 on top to make the blondies extra pretty.
The blondies bake for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted two inches from the edge comes out clean and they are lightly golden brown around the edges. They’ll still be soft gooey and rich in the middle, with just slightly crisp edges. Blondie perfection!
If you let the blondies cool most of the way before cutting them, they’ll be much easier to slice and cut much more evenly. They’re pretty delicious warm, though, so I wouldn’t blame you if you just want to dig right in! They’re fantastic plain, or with a glass of milk, but they’re even more over-the-top delicious with a scoop of ice cream and some chocolate sauce on top. So good!
