Candy Corn Swirled Blondies

I know, I know....Candy Corn Swirled Blondies-don't X out just yet. Hear me out. I hate Candy Corn-ok maybe not hate, but I turn my nose at anything related to it. Sure they make cute Halloween decorations but taste wise-ehh. Never been fond of them.
However they are the ultimate Halloween Candy, what Peeps are to Easter, except more people like Candy Corn (barely). Getting the idea from the Rachel Ray Magazine (she made Candy Corn Nachos-bleh) I decided to take the melting down idea and swirl it on top of Blondies. 
At first thought, and chatting this over with my madre (who was opposed to the idea) I thought, well hey, even if they don't turn out well my crazy Candy Corn obsessed (and I mean OBSESSED) cousin will eat these.
I am impressed with my self-I found a way to make Candy Corn edible for haters like me. I don't know if it is the combo of the blondies & melted Candy Corn but these were awesome. I ate 2 of these, and my aunt, who scoffed at the Candy Corn on these kept sneaking bites. Of course the cousins loved them.

This is a great recipe for the kiddos, the Candy Corn lovers out there, Halloween(duh!)or if you have a whole bunch of Candy Corn that needs to be eaten/made use of.

Source: Rachel Ray Magazine & whippedtheblog.com
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
for the topping
1/2 cup Candy Corn
2 Tablespoons butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x9 pan with parchament paper (my fav here but its pricey) .
2. In a bowl mix together flour, soda and salt-set aside. 
3. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a saucepan/pot. Once melted mix in brown sugar until dissolved. 
4. Quickly whisk in egg & vanilla extract. 
5. Stir in flour mixture until just combined and pour into prepared pan. 
6. Bake for about 30 minutes until middle is set.
7. Take blondies out of oven and put on a cooling wrack for 30 minutes before cutting. 

For the Candy Corn Topping
1. 20 minutes into the blondie cooking, melt the butter over medium low heat in a small pan. Once melted add the candy corn and stir until candy corn is melted. 
2. Once the blondies are out of the oven and on the wrack, use a spoon/spatula to pour the melted mixture over the blondies. 

-You can use foil to line the pan, but some of the blondies may stick to the bottom which is why I prefer parchment paper
