These Witch’s Brew Brownies are the perfect way to use up all of your leftover candy!
Yay! November is finally here! Yes, I’m one of those people who has the house decorated and has already started Christmas shopping. I can’t help it, I love this time of year! The downside of the beginning of November is that I’m still trying to get rid of the candy from last month’s festivities. OMG, So. Much. Candy. Wednesday I was home with my daughter. She was bored, I was bored (laundry and cleaning is boring guys!) and I decided we were going to do a little magic and make the last of that candy disappear.
Do your kids watch Little Charmers? My daughter is obsessed with it and I’ve gotta admit it is a cute show. It’s on Nick Jr. and it is about three little charmers-in-training who are best friends and love to do magic…even if they aren’t always good at it. Hazel is the main character and her magic rarely goes as planned. They even call it being “Hazeled” :). Poor kid! I know how she feels. In the end through the power of friendship they always manage to fix whatever mess she’s made though, and the show has a really positive message that anything is possible when you work together have true friends like the Little Charmers!
Since Little Charmers is her favorite thing, my little girl and I set out to make some Witch’s Brew Brownies. It’s pretty simple, just make a batch of brownies and fill them with leftover candy, and some edible eyes, because no brew is complete without some eye of newt. My daughter loved that :). She got out her Little Charmers wand, worked some magic, and did a little taste testing, you know, to make sure only the best candy went into her spell. Then we popped everything in the oven and sat down to watch an episode of Little Charmers while we waited for them to cook and cool. After our Little Charmer themed afternoon and listening to my daughter talk about the show all day I know what is going to be at the top of my list for her, and every other little kid on my list this Christmas!
When the show was over and the brownies were cool I served them up. Yep, they tasted just as good as they look. She and I had one, ok maybe two, and saved the rest to share with my husband and son. Needless to say there was no whining about the candy being gone since it meant brownies! We had such a fun day and my house is now also candy free. I feel like can get serious about my Christmas shopping for now.
Of course the problem with Christmas shopping early is I can’t wait to give everyone their gifts. This happened the next day. She was so excited about her Hazel doll, just look at that sweet face. There’s still plenty more Little Charmer dolls to get her for Christmas, this early gift was totally worth it just to see that look.
