I know this may sound strange, but for the most part, we are not candy people. Don’t get me wrong. We like candy. We just don’t eat a lot of it.
I for one, am more of a baked goods kind of person. And my husband’s favorite is Sour Patch Kids, which I don’t really like. So we rarely have candy in the house. Except those lovely holidays that for some reason make it mandatory to have lots of candy around. I think I may change that soon.
Anyway, last Easter we ended up with a whole bag a Cadbury Mini Eggs, and we knew we were not going to eat them. So, I made these blondies and we all decided that this was a tradition that we could stick with.
They’re the perfect chewy, caramelly blondies and the milk chocolate in the eggs make them just . . . mmmm.
Definitely a simple way to make a fun treat for Easter or just for fun!
