This morning, you probably found yourself in one of the following scenarios: a) Your children visited every house within a 5 mile radius last night and you now have more candy than they can possibly eat; b) You overestimated how many trick-or-treaters would come to your door, and now you have more candy than you can possibly eat; or c) A combination of both A and B.
Sensing a theme here? The best way to make a dent in that giant pile of candy is to repurpose it into something even better, like homemade candy fudge or loaded cookie bars, and then share it with everyone you know (coworkers, friends, extended family, etc).

At this point, you're probably sick of Candy Corn, but if you still have one or two bags lingering around the house, reutilize it in this easy chocolate bark. Feel free to customize this recipe by adding the chopped candy of your choice.

This is no ordinary brownie; think giant brownie baked as a tart, spread with smooth peanut butter & chocolate hazelnut ganache, and finished with crunchy candy. Slice and eat like a pie, or cut into regular brownie portions for a portable dessert.
