How To Make Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies?

Are you stuck with piles of leftover Halloween candy and wondering what to do with them? Look no further than these delicious Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies! 

Start by lining an 8″ x 8″ baking dish with parchment paper and preheating your oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until a fluffy and pale yellow mixture forms. 

Whisk in the cocoa powder until fully incorporated before stirring in the melted butter and vanilla. Add the flour and salt, stirring until completely combined with no lumps. Finally, fold in the chopped leftover Halloween candies. 

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and level it out with a spatula. Bake for 18-20 minutes, let cool, and then cut into squares. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how deliciously decadent the combination of leftover candies and brownies is!

Storing Your Brownies:

Storing these tasty treats is quite straightforward. Once cooled, place them in an airtight container at room temperature. They should stay fresh for up to 3-4 days. If you want to extend their shelf life, refrigerating them is a viable option. 

However, remember to allow them to reach room temperature before serving, as this allows the flavors to fully develop.

Can You Freeze Your Brownies?

If you’ve made a larger batch and want to save some for later, freezing is a fantastic option. Wrap individual brownies in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. 

They can be frozen for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to indulge, just thaw them at room temperature for a few hours.

Variations to the Recipe:

The beauty of Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies is their versatility. You can use any type of candy you have on hand. Think Snickers, M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, or even gummy candies. The possibilities are endless! 

You could also add a swirl of caramel or peanut butter to the batter for added decadence. If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding a dash of chili powder or espresso powder to enhance the chocolate flavor.

Tips and Tricks

When making these brownies, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind. 

First, don’t overmix your batter. This can lead to tough brownies. 

Second, it’s better to underbake than overbake. Brownies continue to cook as they cool, so taking them out when they’re slightly underdone will result in a fudgier texture. 

Lastly, if you’re using chocolate-based candies, freeze them for about 30 minutes before chopping. This will prevent them from melting too much when baking.

Fun Brownie Recipes:

Leftover Halloween Candy Brownies are an easy and delicious way to use up your post-Halloween candy stash. Not only are they fun to make, but they also provide a unique twist to the traditional brownie. Whether you’re sharing them with friends or keeping them all to yourself, these brownies are sure to be a hit!
