What is a Blondie?

These blondies started from a box of Pillsbury Purely Simple Sugar Cookie Mix.

But before we talk about the recipe, maybe it’s time to get back to the basics.

Blondies are the vanilla lover’s answer to brownies. Actually, scratch that. Blondies are for everyone.

If you take the texture of a fudgy brownie and the vanilla infused flavor of a perfect chocolate chip cookie dough, you get blondies.

Soft, sweet bars that are the perfect canvas to dress up with all kinds of flavors.

Love pecans? There’s a blondies recipe for that. Love Cake Batter? There’s a blondie for that. You get the idea.

Today’s blondies recipe is for all you Snickerdoodle lovers out there! I added cinnamon to the Pillsbury sugar cookie mix, sprinkled a cinnamon sugar topping over the blondies and, to make it Halloween ready, added some stripes of vanilla frosting and candy eyes on top!

Ingredient Notes

  • Pillsbury Purely Simple Sugar Cookie Mix – There’s no sugar cookie mix quite like it! While I’m a huge fan of sugar cookies from scratch, you can’t beat the convenience of this mix.
  • Cinnamon – This simple spice turns a regular batch of blondies into treats that mimic the flavor of Snickerdoodles. I put cinnamon in the blondie batter AND mixed it with sugar for the topping.
  • Unsalted butter – I love using unsalted butter in my blondies to control the amount of salt in the recipe. If needed, feel free to use salted butter. Melt the butter before adding it to the cookie mix.
  • Candy eyes – I find candy eyeballs at Target, craft stores or online! They add such a fun touch to these blondies bites but, of course, the blondies will taste great without them too.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Blondie Batter

Pour the cookie mix into a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, melted butter and cinnamon an beat to combine.

STEP 2. Bake

Pour the batter into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Combine more cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and then sprinkle it on top of the batter.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the blondies comes out clean (about 22 – 25 minutes). While the blondies are cooling, prepare the frosting.

STEP 3. Make the frosting

Beat the powdered sugar with butter, vanilla and milk until smooth, fluffy and creamy.

STEP 4. Decorate

To make these into mummy bites for Halloween:

Use a round cookie cutter to cut the blondies into bite sized circles. Then, use a frosting bag to pipe overlapping white stripes onto the blondie bites. Add two candy eyes to the top of each one to complete the look!

For regular snickerdoodle blondie bares:

Use a knife or rubber spatula to spread the frosting all over the cooled blondies. Cut into desired squares once cooled and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • A number 48 frosting tip is my preferred way to make the mummy stripes. Alternate the smooth side with the more textured size to give these bites dimension and a more convincing mummy-like appearance!
  • Store Snickerdoodles Blondies in an airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe FAQ

Can you use another sugar cookie mix?

Yes! While I happen to love the texture and taste of this one, any sugar cookie mix can serve as a base to these blondies!

Where can I buy candy eyes?

I found mine at Target. I’ve also had luck purchasing them at craft stores like Michael’s or Joanne Fabrics, or there’s always Amazon!

Can you freeze Blondies?

Blondies and blondie bites freeze wonderfully! I’d recommend freezing them before adding the frosting and candy eyes for best results. They’ll keep in the freezer for about 2 months.

  1. My snickerdoodle loving son will be home for fall break this weekend. Perfect timing—he’d love these!!! And so would I 🙂

  2. Oh Aimee, this made me laugh because I love Halloween – it’s actually one of my favorite holidays. BUT I totally feel you on the costumes 100%. Last year I convinced my daughter to use her dance costume and my son to wear his baseball uniform, but this year they’re not having it! ACK. On the bright side, I love these blondies. Snickerdoodle anything! #mottoforlife 

  3. I’ll admit that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because it gives my husband and I an excuse to dress up in goofy costumes.  But I totally get your stress about the costumes – I’m not a sewer, either!  These snickerdoodle bites are perfect for anytime of the year!

  4. I swear the little eyes need to be a part of every holiday! I’ve been eyeing these mixes in the baking aisle. I will have to try it!

  5. How cute! I love these. Feel free to send some my way next time you make them. I’ll gladly take any of your leftovers 🙂

  6. These are fantastic! So cute! I love blondies… never thought about baking them and then cutting them out but I really like the circular shape. I’m inspired! Pinned

  7. These are adorable. Those eyes peeking out of the box? Ridiculously cute. 

    Now about Halloween….or Hallooweener around here because we have Dachshunds who we dress up in costumes. We love dressing up! I hit up the thrift stores in the summer. You should see the velvet coat I got my husband as he is going to be Prince Charming. And the 3 girls are going to be Snow Whites with dad the prince. Can’t wait!! 

  8. Okay, I’m with you on Halloween. I really don’t like opening my door and seeing scary people on the other side. It goes against all my self-preservation instincts. And these scary people want to take my candy away from me. What gives?!
    These are the cutest darn blondie bites I’ve ever seen. Who knew a mummy could be cute? You nailed it!
