Tray of Treats.

Following Halloween night, there's always an abundance of candy leftover. Well, I decided I was going to use the candy for an experiment. After searching for the most tempting and simple recipe, I came across one on Allrecipes. Using only leftover sweets and snacks, I made Blondies.

Starting the process, I quickly realized there was a small problem. The recipe called for a specific amount of each candy and treat, and I had a vastly different amount of leftovers. So, I decided to wing it. I followed the brownie recipe as closely as possible, but I differed from the candy type and amount stated in the recipe. Deciding to try use as much candy as I could, Butterfingers, Mini Reese's Cups, Pretzels, M&M’s, Hershey's Bars, and Kit-Kats went into the mix. But, the overall recipe used was:

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup of All-Purpose Flour

The recipe was extremely easy to follow, and only took about an hour overall. After mixing in all the ingredients, they went into the oven, and baked for about 20 minutes. Throwing in random amounts of candy seemed fun, in theory. But, as the blonde baked, the amount of candy in the brownie was daunting.

The ending result was an extremely sweet, and slightly salty treat. Had I not been heavy-handed with the candy, the balance in the blonde would have been better. Nonetheless, the brownie was amazing! It's a great way to utilize leftover candy, and it makes for a sweet treat. So for any brownie or candy enthusiast, this is definitely a dessert to try.
