Peanut Butter Candy Corn Cookie Bars

The fall recipes continue, and this time, not with pumpkin or apple, but candy corn! I've seen recipes recently of homemade Butterfingers being made by melting and combining peanut butter and candy corn. Who would have thought? So, even though Peanut Butter Candy Corn Cookie Bars may seem like an odd combo, candy corn and peanut butter do pair well together, as proven by Butterfingers. 

This is a somewhat healthy recipe, being whole wheat and refined sugar-free. I used natural peanut butter, pure raw honey and pure maple syrup to make these bars sweet, but still nice and peanut butter-y, too.

The bars are a cinch to whip together. They only require one bowl, a handful of regular baking ingredients, and of course, candy corn. When they first come out of the oven, they will be somewhat puffy, but they will sink down after cooling down a bit.
