Recipe for Malt Ball Blondies

It seems that whichever Halloween candy mix you buy, there is always at least one variety of candy in that mix that nobody in the family eats, and (if the mix actually makes it to Halloween)the trick-or-treaters don’t choose. This year, the mix I bought had several favorites which got eaten quickly (actually before Halloween), but the malt balls just sat there in the bowl. After opening them, coarsely chopping them in the food processor, and adding them to a favorite blondie recipe, I learned that certain candies are better when added to a recipe rather than just eaten plain. Malt Balls are so good in these Malt Ball Blondies, I know I’ll be purchasing large packages of them from now on because these chewy bars will be requested often.
I shared these bars with some friends I work with and received raves and requests for the recipe. If you have malt balls at home, you’ll want to make these bars, because not only are they yummy, they are quick and easy (no mixer is even needed). If you don’t have malt balls at home, you will still want to make these bars; you’ll just have to buy a big package of them next time you’re at the grocery store.

32 Bars

3/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 sticks
2 cups brown sugar

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups chocolate covered malt balls, coarsely chopped (reserve 1/2 cup for garnish)

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Spray a 9 x 13" glass shallow baking dish with non-stick spray.

  3. Place the butter and brown sugar in a microwaveable container; microwave on high power for 2 minutes. Stir; microwave an additional 2 minutes. Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved.

  4. Measure the flour, baking powder, and salt into a fine strainer over the butter mixture.

  5. Shake through and stir.

  6. Add the eggs and vanilla; stir until smooth.

  7. Stir in 2 1/2 cups of the coarsely chopped malt balls and spread evenly into the prepared pan.

  8. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  9. Meanwhile mix the chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a small microwave-safe bowl.
  10. Microwave one minute; stir, microwave 30 seconds to a minute and stir until melted.

  11. As soon as the bars are done, drizzle the chocolate mixture over the bars; sprinkle with the reserved malt balls.

  12. Cool thoroughly before cutting into 32 squares or bars.
