Just in case you didn’t have enough candy this weekend and/or didn’t fall into a sugar coma but were hoping to, I’m sharing this recipe for Twix Blondies.
Packed with Twix candy bars, chocolate chips, and caramel bits, these bars are gooey, chocolaty and really, really good. Plus, what better recipe to share than one that can use up some of the extra Halloween candy you might have left over, or if you’re like me and went through all the candy you bought (almost 400 candy bars), then you can raid your children’s candy, I’m sure they won’t mind 😊.
I love Twix candy bars and when you throw them into some cookie dough, well, that’s a game changer if you ask me.
I hope you all had a great weekend and are getting ready to gear up for this holiday season. Not to stress you out or anything, but did you know there are only 7 more Sundays until Christmas. . . YIKES! So you’d better get shopping and baking.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup butter , at room temperature
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 (3.4) ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 bag Twix bites (or 2 cups chopped Twix candy bar)
- 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup Kraft Caramel bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with foil with enough foil to hang over the edges, spray foil lightly.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Add eggs one at a time until well incorporated. Add vanilla and pudding mix. Beat until light and fluffy. Slowly add the flour mixture, mix well.
Add Twix bites, chocolate chips and caramels bits, stir until combined.
Press dough evenly into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 23-25 minutes. You don’t want to over bake these. Bake just until edges begin to turn a light golden brown. The center may still look a little underbaked, but that's ok.
If you use the Twix bites, you can leave them whole or cut them in half, whatever you prefer. I left mine whole and after mixing them in with the mixer, some of them broke into pieces, which was just fine.
