Candy Corn Pumpkin Peanut Blondies

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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