Chewy Pumpkin Blondies with White Chocolate, Toffee Bits and Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses.

Pumpkin Spice Blondies with Pumpkin Hershey Kisses and Toffee Bits

Please tell me you’re not sick of pumpkin yet. PLEASE. Just be nice, this is my last pumpkin recipe.

This week.

I’m sorry. Actually no.

I’m not going to apologize for my insane love of pumpkin. I’m going to embrace it. And make more.

Well, not today anyways. While you all are enjoying these Pumpkin Blondies, I actually broke out the peppermint. I know. Can you believe it?

These are the problems of food bloggers. We are much like the retail stores…we start early in sharing holiday themed recipes, and just when you’re looking for mittens in December, we’ve moved on to Easter stuff and swimsuits.

It’s wrong. I know. But  it’s my job and I wouldn’t change it!

Pumpkin Spice Blondies with Pumpkin Hershey Kisses and Toffee Bits

So, let’s talk about this insanely delicious pumpkin blondies. Your first question I’m sure is “why is there a lump on each blondie.” It’s awkward and weird. Much like myself (no true story, I’m kinda an awkward person).

That “LUMP” is actually a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss. You get to the center of your Blondie and encounter the kiss, I’m telling you it’s awesome.

If it’s too awkward looking you can totally chop up the Hershey Kisses…but somehow that seemed harmful. I know, I’m weird.

Chewy Pumpkin Blondies with White Chocolate, Toffee Bits and Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses.


For the blondies:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  1. Line a 9inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat brown sugar with melted butter and pumpkin until smooth. Beat in egg yolk, salt and flour. Fold in white chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan. Press in the Hershey Kisses.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove and cool completely before adding glaze.

    Wow these desserts look awesome! We are doing lots of desserts with pumpkin too! The nice thing about it is the pumpkin isn’t too sweet!

  4. As much as I am so ready for mint, I still have pumpkin recipes to share. Hopefully everyone else is still wanting pumpkin even though I have moved on. I like brownies and blondies…it is hard to choose a favorite…it all depends on my mood and the day. Love the pumpkin kiss center!

  5. I still have half a bag of pumpkin kisses left, so I may need to try these! I haven’t even opened a can of pumpkin yet, and here you are diving into peppermint. I’m a bad blogger haha

  8. I think you’re safe to keep on with it for a good long while! I remember last year seeing pumpkin until well after Thanksgiving and into Dec! Funny, pumpkin used to mean a Thanksgiving food, something to eat in Nov. Now, it means something to start baking with in like July 🙂 Pinned!

  13. OK…I was going to make another batch of pumpkin pie bars, when I see these and totally have a change of plans. But where in the heck do you get pumpkin pie spice Hershey’s Kisses? I don’t think I’ve been living under a rock, but I have never run across them. Any ideas of what to use in their place if I can’t find them?

  14. Keep the pumpkin recipes coming, please! I can’t get enough!
