These easy Witch’s Brew Brownies are a fun way to use up that last little bit of leftover Halloween candy. I used a boxed brownie mix to save time but feel free to use your favorite homemade brownie recipe if you prefer! The goal here is to make a delicious chocolate-y brownie packed with a layer of leftover candy and a few edible eyes because…well…Halloween!

We love going all out for Halloween with Mummy Dogs for dinner, and then Candy Bar Cookies Bars, Halloween Magic Bars, or Halloween Dessert Pizza for dessert. If you’re having a Halloween party make sure to check out of some our other Easy Halloween Recipes.

These ooey, gooey, chocolate brownies are an easy recipe for using up all of that leftover Halloween candy.

The kids look forward to these brownies after Halloween every year and they love seeing who can make the chocolaty-ist brownies by packing it with all of the favorite candies. I’m partial to Reese’s cups and anything with caramel but the sky is the limit 🙂

What You’ll Need

  • Brownie mix – You’ll need the ingredients listed on back of box ( eggs, oil, and water usually) and you’ll follow the baking instructions as well.
  • Leftover Halloween candy – Any candy will work! I think chocolate based candy is best, things that Jolly Ranchers, and gummy bears, don’t mix as well with ooey gooey brownies, but you can add anything you like!
  • Edible Eyes – We love these little candy eyes and they are the perfect addition to any recipe instantly transforming it into Halloween! You can usually find them at Walmart, Target, and Michaels (or any craft store) in the baking section.

How to Make Halloween Brownies

Make the brownies. Mix the brownies up according to the package instructions. Pour the brownie mix into a greased pan and top with half of your candy. The candy tends to sink as the brownies cook so I save the other half of the candy until the last 5 minutes of baking.

Bake. Bake the brownies according to the instructions on the back of the package. 5 minutes before the brownies are finished baking pull the brownies out of the oven and add the rest of the candy to the top of the brownies, pressing it down into the brownies lightly. Finish baking.

Add the eyes. When the brownies came out of the oven add the edible eyes and let them cool a bit before serving.
