Start by beating the wet ingredients then slowly stir in the dry.
How To Make Blondies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
Place softened butter, brown sugar, pumpkin, egg and vanilla into a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Stir in flour, salt, candy corn pieces and peanuts. Transfer to lined baking dish.
Bake for 25-28 minutes, until baked through. Remove and let cool for 20 minutes.
To prepare icing, whisk powdered sugar and cream until smooth. Drizzle over warm bars.
Time for the honey roasted peanuts!
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.
….and the colorful candy corn pieces.
Transfer to your baking dish.
Top with another layer of candy corn then bake for 28-30 minutes.
Cut into squares and drizzle with my sweet icing! Nom Nom Nom 🙂
