Yes, I realize it’s only a few days after Halloween… but I’m already sick to death of fighting about candy.
I can no longer fight with myself OR the kids and their incessant requests for “One more piece”. Let’s not even mention finding hidden empty wrappers in their rooms (or mine?).
Perhaps I’m jumping the gun a tad, but when it comes to Halloween candy: I’m OVER it.
I just can’t bring myself to throw it away though… after all, it is chocolate.
If you’re in the same boat, don’t fret. There’s hope yet. You can make Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies!
A pan of these chocolate fudgy treats will bring anyone to their knees! Want to know how to make your own?
1 box of brownie mix (any brand will do)
A rather large pile of any and all chocolate related Halloween candy that you can steal away from the kids – chopped into smallish sized pieces
A large cookie sheet or foil
A treadmill for after you eat the entire pan… Kidding!
Assemble and bake the brownie mix according to the package. When the brownies are finished baking, pull them out of the oven and immediately distribute all of the chopped up candy bars, etc. on top of them. Once the candy is on, quickly put the cookie sheet over the top of the pan to seal in the heat from the just baked brownies. If you do not have a cookie sheet, use a double layer of foil and seal tightly. Do NOT put the pan back into the oven. Turn the oven off. I repeat, turn. it. off.
Let the brownies sit on the counter covered for at least 15-20 minutes until the candy has completely melted. Take the cookie sheet/foil off the pan and with a knife, gently swirl the melted gooey goodness all over the brownies to create a sort of candy “icing”.
You are then left with two choices: Let them cool like a wuss… or devour them in their pure and perfect warmness state. I vote for the latter!
