Blondies are some of my favorite treats to create. So many fun options to play around with! I got a call from my father in law a couple weeks ago telling me I had to create something with candy corn and peanuts….he had been snacking on that combo and raved about it! He didn’t have to twist my arm, sounded like a great combo. Needless to say these turned out soooo good! The candy corn melts and gets gooey and fabulous. Can’t wait for you to try these out! Enjoy 🙂

How To Make Blondies

Start by beating the wet ingredients then slowly stir in the dry.

What Is The Difference of a Blondie and Brownie?

Blondies and brownies have a few things in common.  Both have eggs, flour, sugar and butter in their list of ingredients. They also both have a fudgy texture and are generally cut into bars.

They can can have “add ins” to the ingredients list, such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, candies etc.

The whole texture of blondies and brownies falls somewhere in between a cookie and a cake.

The color Differences

When you look at a tray of the two bars, blondies are lighter in color than brownies.

    I never thought about baking with candy corn. Does it just melt into the batter while cooking?
