So I know you’re at your wits end with all of that Halloween candy lying around. You’re at that point where you’re thinking “whelp, time to turn on the mouth vacuum and finish this all off.”
Am I right?
Or maybe you’re sitting there, smeared with chocolate and surrounded by wrappers as you read this. That’s cool too.
So I just knew that I had to get this recipe to you. You can use up all of those not-so-fun-sized tiny candy bars and either gift the whole darn blondie to that rotten neighbor who gave it all to your kid (thus stealing your sleep and sanity for the last week) or top it with ice cream and eat it yourself. I’d opt for the latter but that’s just me.
I’ll warn you, this Candy Explosion Skillet Blondie is amazing. Seriously, attack it with a spoon straight from the skillet, amazing.
I used a basic blondie recipe, but reduced the butter and sugar slightly, because I’m adding enough chocolate candies to knock you dead. Use the candies that are chocolate based (I used Peanut M&M’s, Mr. Goodbar, Snickers, Milkey Way, Junior Caramels, and Reese’s) and don’t contain mint (or else you’ll get specks of odd minty pockets in there).
After it’s finished baking, top the Candy Explosion Skillet Blondie with a pile of chopped up Kit-Kat bars, which will melt into the top of the blondie and give an extra chocolatey crunch layer to the whole shebang.
Of course, if you don’t have a skillet (mine is 8″), feel free to bake the blondie in an 8×8″ square pan and cut it into bars after it’s baked.
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/8 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 - 1 1/2 cups chopped up chocolate candy bars*
- 1/3 cup chopped up Kit-Kat candy bars
- ~Prehead your oven to 350 degrees F and spray an 8" skillet with nonstick spray.
- ~In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together.
- ~In another mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, melted butter and egg. Stir until completely mixed together. Then, add the vanilla.
- ~Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and begin mixing. Before the dough completely comes together (when you still have patches of dry ingredients), add the chopped up candy bars (NOT the Kit-Kat's) and fold them into the dough. When it is all just combined, turn it out into the prepared skillet. Use your fingers or a spatula to spread out the dough in an even layer.
- ~Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean (don't over-bake). Pull the blondie out of the oven and place on a wire rack. Spread the chopped up Kit-Kat bars over the top of the hot blondie. Let the blondie cool before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
