Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blonde Brownies

Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blonde Brownies - peanuts, candy corn, and Reese's pieces inside a peanut butter blonde brownie

Dear Bowl of Fall Goodness,
Why must you be so stinking good together?  I thought I could resist the temptation of mixing candy corn, peanuts, and Reese’s pieces.  That was just silly.  Now that the bowl is empty, all I can think about is going to the store for more ingredients for this life changing snack mix.  I’ll definitely never stop craving this.  I guess that means I need to stock up on bags of candy corn while it’s still available.

Love, the Girl in the Stretch Pants

Dear Lunch Box,
Can you please remind my children to empty you each and every day?  I’m sure you don’t like being full of smelly containers all weekend long.  I know my nose would appreciate the extra help.  Soup containers that have been sitting for three days do not smell good at all.

Love, The Main Dish Washer in the House

Dear Teenage Driver,
I know you are so cool now that you can drive, but can I offer one small piece of advice?  If you leave the mall and get into your vehicle, please leave the parking spot, especially if you see a black mini van waiting for your up close parking spot.  Do not sit there texting and laughing.  And please do not wait until the said black van gives up and drives to the back of the parking lot.  The right thing to do is leave asap so others can utilize those close spots.

Love, The Mom Driver who really wanted your close parking spot (yes, I’m lazy)

Dear BruCrew Readers,
Please, please, please do yourself a favor and buy some candy corn, peanuts, and Reese’s pieces today. I know my first letter said this was a dangerous mix and that is was addicting.  Go ahead and forget about that…you will definitely thank me after you try it.  Your pants might hate me, but I can live with that.   To help you out a little, I have a blonde brownie recipe that uses up the rest of the snack mix.  Yes, it is just as dangerous to eat, but let’s live on the edge a little.  These peanut butter blonde brownies have so much texture from the snack mix and have such a delicious peanut butter flavor, that you just can’t stop munching.  The candy corn gives the perfect amount of chew in each bite too.  You are going to love them…promise.

Love, The Baker Chick who just realized how long its been since posting a Blonde Brownie.

    Dear Girl in the Stretch Pants and Mom Driver,
    The two of you should get together. Parking in the deepest, darkest corner of the parking lot is heart healthy. Safety in numbers, so walk together. Stretch Pants Girl will walk off the excess calories ( thereby making devouring candy corn mix or blondies totally ok) and Mom Driver will walk off her frustration with teenagers who rudely ignore parking lot etiquette.

    I have yet to make a blondie but it’s been on my list FOREVER! These look so yummy – I look forward to candy corn every year.

    And I LOVE your letters! Could I get a copy of the lunch box one for my husband? He STILL does that! I do not love the smell of mold in tubberware. Eww.

    I was just at the store and saw a bag of candy corn mixed with peanuts … couldn’t believe that I haven’t tried it … Reese’s just tips the whole combo over the top! I really didn’t need to know about this … thank you anyway … my pants don’t thank you 😉

    I wanted to make these so badly this morning, but I didn’t have candy corn, mini pieces or peanuts in the house…so I improvised. I raided the Halloween candy (yes I am fully stocked and ready) and pulled out bags of mini pb cups and payday bars, for candy corn I used the marshmallow pumpkins instead. They are barely cooled and I’ve had one already. They are so good!

      I am loving that you improvised on the recipe so you could make it right away! That is the awesome thing with this blondie…it is totally customizable! Thank you so much for sharing and letting me know how much you liked them!

    I just made something very similar to this today. But the candy corn melted when I baked it. It turned into liquid sugar pretty much. How do you keep the candy corn in take?

    • says

      If the candy corn is not covered it will melt. There were a few pieces that were at the top and on the edge that melted more, but it just created a chewy texture in that spot. The dough around the candy corn kept it from all melting into liquid. How long did you bake yours?

      • Rochelle says

        You mean covered by the dough? Yeah, I folded it in all of the pieces. I it baked in a 9 x 13 pan on 350 for about 20 mins. It didn’t turn out anything like I thought it would. So now I’m a little afraid of baking with candy corn again because I don’t want to ruin the entire final product.
