You’ll be amazed by the combo of flavors in these Candy Corn Peanut Bars!
Candy corn is one of those treats that people either love, or…don’t. In our house, we love everything candy corn. It’s simple, it’s sweet and it can be added to a ton of other food items to give it that burst of sugary flavor. I like to think of candy corn as the “secret star” of these dessert bars.
When you take your first bite, your taste buds will immediately notice the peanut butter chips. (How could they not…they’re amazing!) Then as you chew, you’ll slowly start to taste the peanuts as well. Last but not least, the candy corn will bring this candy corn dessert home. It’s seriously the perfect taste to end this treat!
While these are super fun for a harvest party, they’re also perfect for any fall occasion, tailgating and even a quick and simple after-school snack. And truth be told, it’s a great recipe to use up some of that leftover candy corn that your kiddos may have gotten trick or treating!
- 2 Cups Dry Roasted Peanuts
- 1 Bag Peanut Butter Chips
- 4 Tbsp. Butter
- 14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 ½ Cups Candy Corn
- 10 oz. Mini Marshmallows
In a 9×13 pan, sprinkle 1 ½ cups of peanuts and ½ cup of candy corn.
In a small saucepan melt the peanut butter chips and butter, and remove from heat.
Stir in sweetened condensed milk until combined.
Pour the marshmallows in a large bowl and mix in the melted peanut butter mixture.
Spread this over the top of the nuts and candy corn in the pan.
Sprinkle the rest of the peanuts and candy corn on top and press into the bars.
Refrigerate for about an hour.
Have fun making up these delicious dessert bars because you’ll want to start including them in your dessert menu rotation as soon as possible!
