It's Time: Make Leftover Candy Bar Brownies

By: Jamie Lisanti

Now that Halloween is over, it's time to start thinking about all of the ways to use your leftover candy. (For the record, we've been known to stash extra candy just to have as leftovers come November.) You could pass it out to coworkers or stockpile it to bring to movies, but we recommend revamping it, perhaps as  Leftover Candy Bar Brownies. First, make a simple brownie batter, then add your favorite chopped chocolate candy — peanut butter, nougat, mint or caramel are all fair game. A gleaming layer of velveteen, thick chocolate ganache takes these over the top. Spread a thick layer of it over the top of the brownies, sprinkle with additional leftover chopped candies, like chocolate-covered peanuts or pretzels, and then revel in the candy-coated baked goodness. Happy  Day-After Halloween!
