Leftover Easter Candy Blondies
I believe it is safe to say that after Christmas, Easter has the best holiday themed candy. From the giant chocolate bunnies, Cadbury crème eggs, and even all the regular candy gets egg shaped and filled with peanut butter. It’s a delicious spring dream! But once all the egg hunts are over and you wind up with a house full of Easter candy, what do you do with it?
Be honest, you are not going to give it away or throw it out. And only the strongest can say they have one piece a day. So I decided to take all that candy and put it in a Blondie recipe. That way you can have a few bites a night of all your favorite candy or cut up all the Blondies and give them to people. I do something very similar to this at Halloween as well. This recipe is a semi homemade recipe in the fact that I use a box mix. I could have easily made the Blondies from scratch but when I was doing my usual Trader Joes shopping I saw they had a box mix and after all the cooking you have to do at Easter anyways, this just cuts the time in half!
Recipe: Leftover Easter Candy Blondies
Oven Temp: 350F
Servings: 12 blondies
1 box Trader Joes Blondie Mix
1/2 cup Melted Butter (1 stick)
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cookies and Cream Chocolate Easter Bunny
2 Cadbury Crème Eggs (sliced in ½)
½ bag M&M’s Peanut Butter Eggs
A lot Colorful Sprinkles
Turn your oven on to 350F. Grab your favorite square baking tray and spray it with non stick baking spray.
In a large bowl take your box mix, vanilla, melted butter and eggs and mix together well.
On a cutting board grab all your chocolate Easter candy and cut it up into bite sized pieces. I chopped up my Easter bunny but kept my M&M eggs whole. I sliced my Crème Eggs in half, if you cut them any smaller they get too messy and you can’t taste the crème.
Add your candy, minus the crème eggs, to your Blondie mix. Mix it really well to make sure that the candy is incorporated throughout so it will not sink to the bottom.
Take you mix and pour it into your baking tin. Make sure you spread the batter out evenly. Then add your crème eggs to the top of the batter, crème side down.
As it is Easter and who doesn’t like a bit of extra color, throw some of your sprinkles on there. Or maybe some Peeps if you have them.
Set the blondies in the oven for 30 mins. When you check it at 30 mins make sure that the middle is fully cooked and solid. Let it cool down for about 30 mins to make sure all the chocolate in it is set and not a runny mess.
And there you have it, delicious easy Leftover Easter Candy Blondies. Happy Easter
