Peanut Butter Blondies #recipe

What better way to put that leftover Halloween candy to use than to whip it into a homemade dessert? Grab your bulk-purchase favorites and use them as toppers on this quick-fix mix for super moist blondies. I used up my leftover Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on this first batch but would also suggest trying Snickers, Butterfinger or Andes Chocolate Mints for a sweet twist atop this comforting classic.

    I made these for my son’s Halloween party at school. Of course I had to sample them before sending them with him. Tasted delicious along with my coffee this morning!
