Leftover candy from Halloween or other celebration? Chop it up and throw it into a buttery, chewy blondie!
1 and 1/4cupall-purpose flour
3/4cuplight brown sugarlightly packed
1 and 1/2 to 2cupsassorted candychopped
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line an 8" baking pan with foil, leaving an overhang over the sides. Spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg until smooth.
Slowly add flour mixture and stir together until just combined. Fold in chopped candy bars. The batter will be quite thick, but this is ok. Spread evenly into baking pan with a spatula. The layer of batter will look very thin, but it will puff up substantially during baking.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Allow to cool completely before lifting foil out of pan and cutting into squares. Blondies will stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 5 days.
*I used Milky Way, Milky Way Midnight, 3 Musketeers, Snickers, and Twix. Feel free to use any combination of candy you like, or use chocolate chips or nuts instead.
