Leftover Halloween candy. You know you’ve got it. Whether you trick-or-treated your heart out, “borrowed” from your kid’s loot or bought the bulk bags, chances are there are a few stray Snickers, orphaned Whoppers or partnerless Peanut Butter Cups laying around.

Now you have an excuse to do more than just tear open those wrappers and indulge this Halloween season.

Spatula in glass bowl containing chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped Kit Kat Bars, and M&M's

This easy recipe for Leftover Halloween Candy Blondies stars a soft and chewy cookie-like base studded with a holiday’s worth of surplus sweets. Any candy with the capacity to melt will be a perfect fit wedged inside and atop these squares.

I am all about the peanut butter cups (bonus points if you DIY your own, but with my secret filling!) and the Snickers, which we all know are best when frozen.

Square baking pan lined with parchment paper containing blondie batter studded with candy

So forget about that provocative cat costume, ditch that Game of Thrones garb and start hoarding every chocolate-coated, nougat-stuffed, fun-sized indulgence you can get your sticky little hands on.

Leftover Halloween Candy Blondies

  • 1
    (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2
  • 1
    packed light brown sugar
  • 2
    large eggs
  • 1 1/2
    pure vanilla extract
  • 2
    all-purpose flour
  • 1
    baking powder
  • 1 1/2
  • 1
    assorted Halloween candy, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing it to hang over the sides. Coat the paper with cooking spray.

In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk together the melted butter with the sugar and light brown sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined.

Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and stir in the flour, baking powder and salt just until incorporated. Stir in 1/2 cup of the assorted Halloween candy.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top, then sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Halloween candy over the top of the batter.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let the pan cool completely then remove the blondies using the parchment paper overhang, cut into 16 squares and serve.
