With all that Halloween candy to use up we came up with some fun surprise brownies. The kids had a blast adding in the candy bars. It was even more fun to see what kind of candy bar you ended up with in your piece of brownie. Tasty treat with a scoop of ice cream.
Don’t forget how important it is to get kids interested and in the kitchen. They learn how to cook and be independent. It is a memory they will never forget. Recipes and baking are a great way to learn fractions and math. Foodies are born in the kitchen, I grew up always helping in the kitchen and so will my kids.
- 1 box or recipe for 9×13″ pan brownie mix, prepared and ready to pour
- multiple fun size candy bars or larger ones but into bite size pieces (the more variety the better)
Prepare a 9×13″ baking dish by lightly greasing.
Pour 2/3 of the batter into the baking dish.
Follow by pressing different candy bar pieces into the brownie mix. The kids love this part so get some helpers.
Pour the remaining batter even over the candy bars being sure to at least cover each candy. Spread with a spatula if needed to cover all bars.
Bake as directed on box or recipe.
Cool completely and serve everyone their very own surprise brownie. You can serve them warm with ice cream as well, but the candy is extra gooey.
