To candy corn or not to candy corn? That is the question. At least, it is in my house.

Candy corn has always been a subject of debate in my family. Glorious or dreadful? Nostalgic or aged? Some of us love it while the others can't stand the sight of the classic yellow, white, and orange candy.

I decided to prove my siblings—and all the others out there who don’t believe in the yumminess that is candy corn—wrong. So here it is: my redemption candy corn blondies. Shout out to Averie Cooks for the recipe that mine is based off of.
