Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes

Guest Post by Heather at KidsActivitiesBlog.com

Is that bowl of Halloween candy staring at you today?  Did your kids bring home more candy than they could possibly eat? Get creative and try this recipe for Snickers Blondies…you’ll use up some of those tasty Snickers candy bars!

Bringing kids into the kitchen creates the perfect time to bond & learn together.  Younger children can help chop the Snickers, measure & sift the dry ingredients, & help spread the batter in the pan.  Older children can follow this simple recipe themselves & create their own special dessert!

And the best part about cooking with your kids?  It seems to open the door for conversation…especially with older kids…when your hands are busy together, tweens & teens seem to open up.  I think that’s my favorite thing about bringing kids of all ages into the kitchen.  From big to little, there are so many warm fuzzy moments!

Ingredients

1 cup flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, room temperature
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
6 Fun Size Snickers Bars (chopped into 4 pieces each)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease an 8×8 baking pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, & kosher salt. In a large mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter, & vanilla extract.  Once these ingredients are well blended, add the egg & mix until everything is combined. Add the flour mixture very slowly and mix until barely combined.  Using a spatula or large spoon, continue mixing ingredients until completely mixed.  Fold Snickers pieces into the batter. Spread the batter into baking pan.  Don’t worry if it seems like there’s not much batter…it all works out! Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely, then turn baking pan upside down onto a cutting board.  Cut Blondies into squares & enjoy!

If your family doesn’t like Snickers, just about any chocolaty candy will work.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are some of my favorites to throw in!  And if you really want to be good, give them away as treats to a neighbor or your child’s teacher.  You’ll make someone’s day, & the candy stash will have grown smaller!
