Candy Corn Creme Blondies


Candy Corn Creme Blondies by The Sweet Chick
Apparently, I didn't get rid of all my Halloween candy.  I found a bag of Hershey's Candy Corn Creme bars in the back of the pantry and I still had a bag of Candy Corn M&M's that I hadn't opened.  The kids already had enough candy, so I needed to use these in some kind of dessert.  Blondies came to mind, because I have never made them, not have I ever eaten them.  Shocking isn't it.  I'm a chocaholic so I tend to migrate towards chocolaty desserts.  These Candy Corn Creme Blondies may change that.























I wasn't quite sure how these would turn out.  I threw some marshmallows in for some extra creaminess.

I also added some extra M&M's to the top for looks, but then it really didn't matter when I took it out of the oven.  They had all disappeared.  They did take a bit longer than expected to cook and I thought I had burnt them.  The edges looked like they would be hard, but they actually fell apart as you ate them and had a scrumptious caramel flavor.  The middle of the bars are soft and chewy.  Holy sugar rush though.  I think I felt cavities forming just by taking a bite. But nothing a nice glass of milk or a cup of coffee wouldn't cure.

Did this dessert turn out the way that I wanted?  Nope.  Did it look ruined and hideous? Yup.  Does it taste super sweet?  Absolutely.  Could I eat just one piece?  No way, Jose.  I don't know what it is about these bars, but they are like crack.  The butter and sugar melted together to form a beautiful caramel that blended so well with the white chocolate and candy corn flavors.  I normally don't like things super sweet, but these are the exceptions.  The kids loved them, hubby loved them, and the neighbors loved them.  So I guess they weren't ruined after all.  I am going to have to make some more.

    1. There's always next year or you could probably still find some on clearance at some stores.
