Carmel Corn Blondies Recipe – This blondies recipe is a spook-tackular addition to your Halloween table or fall party.
I’ve always loved Halloween.
When I was little, my mother would sew the most elaborate costumes. She would spend weeks stitching, and in some cases, hand painting parts of our costumes for one glorious night of spooky fun. One year she made my brother a meticulously detailed E.T. costume, down to the last wrinkle and glowing finger.
Once we were dressed in our homemade garb, she would give us an approving smile with a twinkle in her eye. She was as proud of our costumes as we were.
Then we would set off through the neighborhood, gathering goodies from all our friends. Although I enjoyed the traditional wrapped candies, I always secretly hoped that one of our neighbors would give us homemade carmel corn, the end-all of Halloween treats, as far as I was concerned.
Carmel Corn is still one of my favorite fall treats, and this year I decided to put it on a pedestal.
Literally. An edible pedestal made from a blondies recipe.
This Carmel Corn Blondies Recipe has it all. Tender butterscotch blondies with crisp edges are adorned with a towering mound of salty sweet carmel corn. Corn Blondies look impressive on platters or cake stands and make great edible gifts.
The blondies recipe is made in muffin tins, so that as they bake the sides rise and get crispy. Then as they cool, the centers sink, creating a well to hold the carmel corn.
The carmel corn tops are made from my easy microwave carmel corn recipe. You simply pour the ingredients in a large paper grocery bag, shake, and nuke.
While the carmel corn was still warm I pressed it into palm-sized mounds and placed them on the blondie bases. Finally I made a light “sugar glue” to secure any loose corn and fuse the mounds to the blondies.
This Carmel Corn Blondies Recipe is fun to make and even more fun to eat!
