Let’s be honest, how many of us still have candy corn left over days even weeks after Halloween is long and gone? I know right? With so many other sugary treats to choose from on Halloween, It’s hard to even know where to begin. I can’t even remember the last time I had a candy corn if I am going to be completely honest here. My son, on the other hand, got a little curious when he tried them of the first time a couple of weeks ago. I figured I shouldn’t deprive him of the sugary goodness (truth be told we don’t even give our kids sugar 99% of the time). But why not make it into a treat that is fun and chewy and delicious? And so started my Pinterest search for Candy Corn dessert recipes. I found a few that looked sooo good but seemed too difficult to pull together. Im all about ease. But alas, I found this Candy Corn White Chocolate Blondie recipe and knew it was something I wanted to try and share with the kids. I substituted some of the ingredients for ones that are just better for you overall and Im happy to report the taste was not in the least bit compromised. This “healthier” take on Candy Corn White Chocolate Blondies is a MUST TRY!

What You Need

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup organic coconut sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

 

What You Do

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside
  • In a microwave safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 min- 1min 20 seconds on high power
  • In a separate large bowl add egg, coconut sugar, and vanilla. Wait a few minutes for butter to cool before adding the butter to this mixture. Once you’ve added the butter whisk the mixture until smooth
  • Add the flour and stir until just combined, no need to over mix
  • Lightly stir in the candy corn and white chocolate chips
  • Spread batter into prepared pan smoothing the top lightly with a spatula (as a side note the original recipe warned against having candy corn touching the the sides of the pan on the top surface as they would melt and leave a gooey mess. I followed this as best as I could and didn’t have any issues)
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick is placed at center and comes out clean. As a side note I’d check the blondies at about 20 mins and check doneness at this point. Mine were done at 21 mins and could have burned a bit if left any longer. Wait 1 hour before slicing into squares. Enjoy!
