Candy Corn M&M’s and Pretzel Blondies!

National Candy Corn Day!! Candy Corn M&M's and Pretzel Blondies!

It is National Candy Corn Day, very convenient as the Halloween Candy is starting to be on sale!  I saw this little treat at The Little Kitchen and could not resist!!  I thought I would add some pretzels instead of the suggested pecans- I love adding salty to sweets!  A few sun-dried cherries would also be delicious!

  • Candy Corn M&M's and Pretzel Blondie Mise en Place

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pretzels
  • 3/4 cup M&M white chocolate candy corn candies, chopped


Sprinkle some crushed M&M's and Pretzels on top before you bake!

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Take an 8×10-inch baking pan and cover in foil and spray with baking spray.
  • Mix brown sugar and egg until it is well mixed, add vanilla and melted butter stirring until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients, flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Slowly add flour mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until all is incorporated. 
  • Gently fold in pretzels and M&Ms (Reserve a tablespoon of each).
  • Add batter to the pan, it will be thicker than a brownie or cake- you will have to spread the batter in the pan.  Sprinkle some crushed M&M’s and pretzels over the top.
  • Bake for about 25-28 minutes until the top is golden blonde!
  • Allow to cool for about 10 minutes and remove gently from pan.
  • Makes 16-20 blondie squares.

    Happy Halloween!! Candy Corn M&M's and Pretzel Blondies
