Snickers Bar Blondies

Snickers Bar Blondies

My folks were in town for Halloween this year. On Halloween afternoon my father asked if we had purchased Halloween candy. We hadn’t because we planned to go to a kid-friendly Halloween party that evening. My father thought it would be a good idea to have candy in case trick or treaters showed up when we returned home. (Dad’s are always right!)

We got the kids dressed while my dad ran out to the store to pick up candy. He came home with a bag of Butterfingers and a bag of Snickers.

We headed off to our party and left the house dark. When we returned home there were a few kids still walking around the neighborhood. Our doorbell rang 4 or 5 times and we distributed candy by the handful, but by bedtime we still had a half a bag of Snickers.

The next day I had the bright idea of putting the Snickers in the food processor and baking with them. The mission was to make blondie that wasn’t too sweet and then cover it in snickers. The mission was accomplished with the help of my little astronaut. Now for the recipe…

Snickers Bar Blondie Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minsĀ  Cooking Time: 20 to 25 mins

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
6 snack sized snickers bars

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter. Place Snickers bars in a food processor and chop until it looks like pebbles. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add brown sugar to melted butter and wait for it to cool down a bit. Slowly stir in egg and vanilla. Combine sugar mixture with flour mixture a little at a time until well mixed. Transfer to a greased 9 inch square pan using a spatula to spread evenly to all sides. It will look like there’s not enough batter. Srpinkle Snickers pebbles on top and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting into squares.

Note: If you like more fudgey blondies make the recipe with 1 cup of flour (instead of 1 1/4) and 1 cup brown sugar (instead of 3/4).

    Are they "fudgey" like texture – like a brownie – or more like a cake — they look delicious – I am a huge blondie fan and definitely will try these?

    Ooh, I'm impressed by how simple and yet how yummy these look! Like Jenny I'd be interested in hearing more about their texture.

    They are sort of in between. If you like fudgey do 1 cup of flour (instead of 1 1/4) and 1 cup brown sugar (instead of 3/4) and they will be sweeter and more fudgey.
