White Chocolate Candy Corn Blondies

Sorry the sisters haven't posted in about 94753965 or so years. I guess busy would be the word. Anyways, Halloween is right around the corner and I figured you could use some candy corn love. I honestly don't like candy corn, I just like the look of it. BUT.. I loved these blondies. I didn't think the candy corn taste was very strong. With that being said, you should give these a shot, whether you are a candy corn lover or not! Here's what you'll need
Butter, brown sugar, an egg, vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt, candy corn, and white chocolate chips. In a large bowl, combine the egg and brown sugar
Add melted butter and vanilla
Mix well; Add the remaining ingredients
Fold in, being careful not to overbeat. Here's the finished dough
Now take a spoon and try it out.. just to make sure it's edible :)
Press into a greased 8x8 baking dish
Bake until barely golden. Cool, slice, serve!
The candy corn almost melts, soo good. Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Cake Batter Ice Cream

Of course, another pumpkin dessert. I'm sorry guys, I just can't help it. It's still kind of warm, but time for fall, so what suites this weather better than pumpkin ice cream? I started off with a basic cake batter ice cream recipe, added pumpkin, and tweaked some other ingredients too. This ice cream ended up being really light and fluffy and the cake batter flavor isn't super strong or overpowering. Everybody loved it at the soup party! AND, this goes perfect with the Caramel Apple Cake:
Here's what you'll need for the ice cream
Milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla, yellow cake mix, pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk and sugar
Whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add spices, pumpkin, and heavy cream
Mix together until well combined. Then whisk in the cake mix and vanilla
Pour finished mixture into the ice cream maker
 Prepare ice cream as the ice cream maker directs
Scoop ice cream into bowls and serve
