So, apparently my kids have been sheltered and deprived and basically their lives just weren’t even worth living.

Blondies. They had no idea what a blondie was or why it was so magical.

You see, I have a thing for brownies. They’re fudgy and decadent and, most importantly, they’re chocolate. Especially when you stuff them with Nutella and the Internets go crazy and Pinterest calls them one of the top ten most pinned recipes of 2013. <—— That happened with this recipe.ย I’ll never stop talking about it.

I have a really bad habit of passing up the blondies for the brownies. But, then I heard talk that Mark Bittman’s blondie recipe from How To Cook Everything is basically the best thing ever and I had to try it. So, we’ve been eating blondies around the clock here in more ways than you can imagine.

Prepare to be bombarded with blondies recipes. First up, are these seasonally appropriate and outrageously gooey and delicious caramel apple blondies!

I took the perfect blondie base, added a hit of cinnamon, and loaded it up with the mini Caramel Apple Milky Way bars. I have a feeling these little candies will be hard to find after Halloween, so stock up now! If you can’t find them, just go for the regular Milky Way bars and try again next year with the caramel apple flavor. You can get them from Amazon too!

I think my favorite part of these blondies is how soft, chewy, and gooey they are! Also, hello, they’re so easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer. They’re made in one bowl with just a few ingredients that you totally have in your cabinet right now (except for maybe the candy bars, of course) and did I mention how soft and chewy they are?

Caramel Apple Blondies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup mini Caramel Apple Milky Way candy bars, unwrapped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together the melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Stir in the egg until well combined.
Add the flour, cinnamon, and salt to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Gently stir in half of the candy bars. The batter will be thick and sticky.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Press the remaining candy pieces all over the top.
Bake for 20 minutes. The center should be barely set.
Cool before cutting.
