"This recipe was a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy. I used the candy bars, m&m's and caramel apple dip I had left over and they were delicious!"

"I decided against adding the caramel topping and additional toppings when I realized that they add up to nearly TWO ADDITIONAL CUPS of nuts, candy and pretzels! Even served plain, this blondie was WAY TOO SWEET for my liking."

"These did not set up well. I baked them extra, but were still really gooey. Also, they were so sweet I didn't add the extra toppings after baking."
