Halloween is just around the corner. In our home, we’ve decorated with spooky Halloween decor and accents to create our own version of a haunted house. The kids are getting their costumes ready and I’m stocked up on candy for the neighbourhood trick-or-treaters. Normally, I end up buying way too much candy and always have lots leftover. Today, I’m sharing an easy recipe to use up your Halloween chocolate!
The solution is Halloween Brownies. I’m taking a basic brownie recipe from scratch and giving them a little milk chocolate kick. It doesn’t matter what kind of chocolate bars you use. Just unwrap what you have and throw them into the mix.
Start with some butter and unsweetened baking chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat.
Stir it constantly until it melts. Be careful to not overcook it since chocolate burns easily.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar together until light and whipped. Add your cooled chocolate and some flour and stir until combined to make a luscious and rich batter.
Let the kids help with the next part if you like. Place your assorted Halloween chocolate into the brownie mixture and push down slightly with the back of a spoon. It’s going to bake (and melt) inside the brownie batter in the oven.
Each piece will be a surprise as to what flavour of chocolate will be inside.
They are rich, fudgey and chewy. This is one of my favourite brownie recipes that I make over and over again for my family.
I used 15 mini chocolate bars in this recipe. If you have a lot leftover, maybe make a few batches or add a few more bars into the batter. Talk about decadent!
No Halloween chocolate will go to waste in my home this year! What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?
- ⅔ cup salted butter
- 5 oz unsweetened baking chocolate cut into chunks
- 1 ¾ cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 15 mini Halloween chocolate bars
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch square pan and set aside.
- Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan on low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes
- In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, eggs and vanilla on medium-high speed for 5 minutes. Pour in chocolate mixture and beat on low until combined. Beat in flour just until mixed. Pour mixture into pan.
- Place chocolate bars evenly into the brownie mixture. Gently press down with the back of a spoon to embed.
- Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.
