One-Bowl Leftover Halloween Candy Blondies

November 2, 2017

Need ideas for how to use leftover Halloween candy? This One-Bowl Blondies recipe is your answer! | One Hungry Mama


Some say that the hardest part of Halloween is figuring out a fantastically creative costume. But all the parents know the real hardest part is figuring out how to use up all that leftover Halloween candy! My One-Bowl Blondies recipe to the rescue.



You can, of course adapt this recipe to skip the Halloween candy and have naked blondies or to use chocolate chips (the same amount 1/2 to 1/4 cup). But right now, this calls for Snickers, Twix, M&M’s and whatever else is left. Because as delicious as those are, these blondies are even more delicious!


One-Bowl Blondies


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more butter (unmelted) for greasing the pan
  • 1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, just out of the refrigerator
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup leftover Halloween candy, most of it chopped up (optional; you can substitute regular-sized or mini chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 35o degrees. Grease an 8x8" baking pan with butter and set aside. Add melted/cooled butter to a large mixing bowl along with the sugar. Whisk until combined.
  2. Add the egg to the bowl and whisk until well incorporated. Mix in the vanilla.
  3. Add the dry ingredients -- flour, salt and baking powder -- to the wet and using a silicone spatula or wooden spoon, mix until batter forms, being careful not to over mix.
  4. Fold in the chopped candy (I like mine less chocolatey, so only use a 1/4 cup, but you can use as much as a 1/2 cup) and transfer batter to prepped baking pan. Top with leftover whole pieces of candy and pop in the oven for 24 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting and serving!
