Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies

Because Peanut Butter (REESE’S) Brownies are life! I am a BIG peanut butter lover and these Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies hit the spot. I like to think I did my family a favor by "getting rid" of the leftover Halloween candy, but I think I just made it worse... in the BEST, DELICIOUS way ever! I was able to use up our Halloween candy by stuffing them in these brownies. All you need is chopped up candy (that would pair well with chocolate) and YUM!

I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. 

Treat yourself and Happy Friday!

Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies

Ingredients:

IMG_0150.JPG
  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Halloween candy (I used Reeses PB Cups), chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter and dark chocolate chunks in a medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, pour into a large mixing bowl, and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  3. While the chocolate mixture is cooling, take your leftover Halloween candy and chop it up. Set aside.
  4. Combine the granulated sugar and light brown sugar into the cooled chocolate/butter mixture.
  5. Slowly whisk in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  6. In a prepared 9x9 baking pan, add chopped halloween candies. Pour brownie mix on top and evenly smooth out batter to cover all edges of the pan.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.

 Enjoy!
