Lotsa Candy Bar Blondies (Big Batch Recipe)

Share with your friends!

Have some candy bars that are begging to be used? Make a batch of super simple blondies to share. It’s a perfect way to use up leftover Halloween, Christmas and Easter candy.

     Soft and delicious blondies studded with tons of chopped up candy bars.  You can use your favorites, or whatever you have on hand. Use all one kind of candy bar, or mix it up.  No matter what, the blondies are sure to be a hit.

This makes a nice big half sheet pan full, so there will be plenty to share. But don’t worry, they won’t stay around long!

   I am so sorry!  I don’t know how I let this happen.  I went a full week and the closest thing I posted to a dessert was some healthy muffins and a little homemade jam.

    What was I thinking?  I wasn’t obviously!  I will try to do better next time.

    In all honesty, I have been trying to clean up my act a bit and not post quite so many sugar laden recipes.  I mean they are good, don’t get me wrong.

     The problem with posting multiple desserts in a week is you have to eat said desserts.

    Of course I don’t take too much issue with extra desserts, but there is a limit and my jeans say we are there.  Don’t worry, it’s not like we are going to have a total ban on sweets.

    Just a proposed slow down.  Maybe.  For a while.  But it is fall soon and I love pumpkin and apple treats and after that it’s Christmas… so lets not hold our collective breath or anything.

    As a peace offering for the supposed slow down that I may or may not follow through on, I am giving you a big batch recipe that is super easy to make. No fancy equipment, no complicated instructions, just yummy treats in a matter of minutes.

     You could pretty easily cut this recipe down if you want, but it is sized perfectly for taking to share with coworkers.  Which is what I happened to do.  I took the tray in when I arrived and got a text from my boss later saying they didn’t last 45 minutes.

    There were only about a dozen people around that day due to vacations and whatnot, so I’ll let you do the math. (I think they like them!)  They would also be perfect for team treats or potlucks.

    You can certainly use chocolate chips or even better, chunks, if you don’t have candy bars.  But I like the fun variance of using leftover candies.  Some bites have a bit of caramel, some have a little peanut and each bit is deliciously unique.

      If you have extra candy bars lying around after Halloween, Christmas or Easter, you can chop them up, freeze them and pull them out through out the year for delicious baked goods.

    (I know… extra candy?! Apparently that’s a thing. Who knew?)  If nothing else, you can make good use of the after holiday clearance candy!

      If you like blondies and the ease with which they come together, you should also check out my cookies and cream blondies. They come together with just a spatula and mixing bowl and are topped with chunks of Oreo.

       If you like the candy topped version, you may also like salted caramel and M&M blondies. They are butter based instead of oil, but they still come together in a flash!

These do sound so delish! Extra candy? Really? I've never heard of that! LOL At least not if it's chocolate. Perhaps there are other candies, the yucky kind, that could be left over. But never chocolate. But you could stock up after Easter and Halloween when the goodies go on sale. Then you could make these fun cookies all the time. I think I'm going to make a point of that. I love that they are bar style, no muss, no fuss, just delish! YUM!

I know, extra candy bars seems like a fairy tale. But I made what I had left from a conference into bars so as to not just mindlessly eat it all myself! It would be a great way to use clearance candy or a good excuse to buy clearance candy if nothing else!
