Are you interested in creating something incredible with Candy Corn? Perhaps you have an abundance left over at your house, you want to take advantage of the cheap Halloween candy sales, or you just plain LOVE IT.
This recipe summed up in three words? BROWN SUGAR, BUTTER, AND CANDY CORN. Doesn’t that just sound awesome?
Start with a simple blondie recipe, add melted candy corn into the mix, and top with a Candy Corn icing.
Now, I do think that eating Candy Corn by the handful is delicious, but for those that can’t get enough of the stuff, I suggest you make these treats. Take it from my roommate, who cannot keep his hands off of candy corn when we have it in the house. His reaction? “WHOAAA! OH MY GOODNESS THESE ARE AWESOME!”
Candy Corn Blondies
For the bars
1/2 C Butter, melted
1 C Brown Sugar
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/8 Tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 C Flour
1 Tbsp butter, unmelted
1 C Candy Corn
For the Candy Corn Icing
1 C Candy Corn
2 Tbsp Butter
1/2 C Powdered Sugar
Make the bars:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Beat melted butter and sugar, then add the egg. In a small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda, then gradually add that to the sugar mixture.
In a small pot, sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking, let the butter melt completely. Begin to stir in the Candy Corn, mashing the pieces as you go. This will form a chunky paste. Stir this paste in the batter.
Scoop the batter into a greased, square cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.
While your Candy Corn Blondies are cooling, prepare the icing:
In a pot, melt 2 tablespoons of butter thoroughly, then add the Candy Corn. Once you mash the pieces, this mixture will be much thinner than the first that was used in the batter. Once melted, add the powdered sugar and stir, creating a thick, orange icing.
Drizzle the bars, once cooled, with the Candy Corn icing, and top with a few pieces of Candy Corn for decorating.
Brush your teeth afterwards 🙂
