Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blondies Recipe

I posted a candy corn picture on Instagram and several people mentioned that they loved candy corn with peanuts. I was intrigued, so I tried it. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I am not a huge candy corn fan and the combo sounded odd. I took one bite and wasn’t blown away, so I took another bite. The combo tasted a little better. By my third bite, I was sold. I liked the candy corn peanut combo. The peanuts balance out the super sweet candy corn.

I didn’t want to sit and the entire bowl of candy corn and peanuts, so I made Peanut Butter Candy Corn Blondies. You know, so I could eat an entire pan of blondies instead:)

The peanut butter blondies are loaded with peanut flavor thanks to creamy peanut butter, salted peanuts, and peanut butter chips. I added in white chocolate for fun and topped the blondies with sweet candy corn!

Note-wait to place the candy corn on top of the blondies during the last 5 minutes of baking or you will have a melted candy corn mess.

  1. I love blondies and have since I was a kid. Peanut butter blondies and especially with candy corn are perfect for this time of year. I love how they aren’t overcooked and stodgy. 🙂

  2. Scrumptious. Delectable. Delicious. Wow. When you asked people what their favorite Halloween candy is….I’m always surprised when so many people say “Candy Corn” but this recipe tells me why!

  3. This sounds really good! I make a candy mix (a co-worker introduced me to it) consisting of equal amounts of candy corn, dry roasted peanuts, and plain M&Ms–we all love it!! When I saw your blog today, I knew it would be delicious and I hope to make it soon. Blondies are also a favorite of mine.

  4. Okay so I heard this combo was awesome BUT I seriously dislike candy corn!! Although, I’m willing to give it a shot if it’s made into blondies like this! Wish you could send me some 🙂

  5. Candy corn goes so well with peanuts and peanut butter. Of course, anything tastes great in a Blondie!

  6. blondies and candy corn in one dessert sounds incredible!! And maybe will prevent me from eating an entire bag of candy corn and feeling sick

  7. I’m wondering if I could freeze these….have you tried it? I don’t know how the candy corn would do!

    1. The candy corn might get too hard?? If you let them defrost a little they might be fine! Let me know if you try it!

  8. I’m going to have to try these. Ive been eaty my favorites  all summer but  thats ok going  to the store to buy me sommer corn 🙂 

  9. Target sells mini candy corn and they would perfect for this! I’ll be making it this week with the mini’s!

  10. Hi,
    If I wanted to bake this in a half sheet pan do you have suggestions on quantity of items and adjusted bake time? I’ve read to convert you 1.5 the recipe, but just didn’t know if you have tried it. Baking on Fri am for a weekend party and want to make sure we have plenty, thank you so much!!

    1. I haven’t tried it, sorry! Let me know if you try it. I would check them early because they will be in a thinner pan.
