Leftover Candy-Topped Brownies ReciPE

Loads of candy leftover from the fall festivities?

We have had buckets full, and I’ve been slowly but surely finding creative ways to clear it out of the house.

We’ve used the candy for a handful of different math activities – but that hasn’t really used it up or made it go away. However, these brownies? The’re going fast!


We whipped up some boxed brownies (The ones from Sam’s Club are our favs!), popped them in the oven for half of the recommended baking time.


While they were getting started in the oven, we tossed all kinds of different treats into a plastic bag and then beat them up with a rolling pin: candy bars, pretzels, etc.


When the oven timer went off, we pulled out the half-baked brownies and topped them all of our crushed up pieces of candy – sprinkling on a colorful handful of whole M & M’s – then put the brownies back in the oven to finish baking.


When the timer went off the second time, we pulled the brownies out of the oven, let them cool, and then dove in head-first: Whatever you’re picturing, it probably did actually look like that.
