If you are craving a PAYDAY Candy Bar then you will love my Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blondie Bars. Great way to use up leftover Halloween candy.
When I was a kid I was allergic to dairy so I never really acquired a sweet tooth. My dad, knowing I was allergic would sometimes bring home a Planters Peanut Bar for me as a treat. You know the one that tastes like peanut brittle. I guess that is why I am always more of a fan of the sweet and salty blend instead of just chocolate.
Don’t get me wrong I like to bake sweets but I just don’t eat too much. I usually try my creations to make sure it is good and what I was trying to achieve. My other favorite candy bar is the Pay Day; nougat surround by caramel, covered in roasted peanuts. See, sweet and salty!
The inspiration for my Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blondie Bars was the PayDay candy bar but also the snack mix using roasted peanuts and candy corn. I love that mix and it is amazing how it tastes just like a PayDay candy. These blondies have all the same flavors in a bar form. Perfect for your upcoming Halloween party or fall bonfires.
Pre-heat your oven to 350°F. Cream together butter, sugars, and peanut butter. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy. Sift together your dry ingredients and slowly add to the mixing bowl. Mix in white chocolate chips, peanuts, and candy corn just until combined. Do not over-mix. Spread the mixture into a 9×13 greased baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely and cut into 24 squares.
