Easy Blondie Recipe
Halloween seems to be the unofficial start to the holiday baking season, and this Blondies recipe is a great way to use up some of the Halloween candy your kids will collect.
Using candy bars for baking (or making s’mores!) is a fun way to incentivize kids not to eat all of their candy. Have some fun in the kitchen and make several batches with different candy combinations, then vote on your favorite.
With so many candy bar blondies in your house, it’ll give you the chance to share them with your friends and neighbors. (Or you can eat them all yourself – no judging here!)
Here’s how to make them –
How to Make Blondies with Candy Bars
These blondies are so easy to make – you don’t even need a mixer!
- brown sugar
- egg & egg yolk
- vanilla extract
- all purpose flour
- baking soda
- candy bars
Prep – Before you get started, you’ll want to preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. You’ll also want to line your baking pan with parchment paper or spray it with cooking spray.
Butter Mixture – To make the batter, you’ll first start by mixing the regular and brown sugar together with the butter. Continue stirring it until the mixture is nice and smooth.
Wet Ingredients – Next, add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla to the bowl and mix it until everything has combined together.
Dry Ingredients – Next, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt into the bowl and stir it until it has just been combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Candy Bars – Cut (don’t crush) the candy bars into small bite-sized pieces. Then fold about 3/4 of them into the dough until they’re evenly distributed.
Cook – Spread the blondie dough evenly into the baking pan. Then sprinkle the remaining candy bar pieces over the top. Finally, bake the blondies for about 25 minutes. The edges should be a golden-brown color.
Serve – Let the candy bar blondies cool first. Then cut them into squares and serve!
Mix-Ins – You don’t have to just use candy bars in this blondie recipe. You can use other candies, chocolate chips white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, or nuts as well!
Brown Sugar – You can use either light brown sugar or dark brown sugar in this recipe. Dark brown sugar will make your blondies sweeter and more moist.
Storage – Leftover blondies stored in an airtight container in the fridge will last 5-7 days. Brownies covered in aluminum foil and left at room temperature will last 3-5 days.

I also think they’re fun to look at, with all the different candy pieces in them. They’re fun to make all year round too! If you don’t have Halloween candy, you can use pretty much any kind of chocolate you’ve got, and they will still turn out great. Enjoy!
