What do you do when you're sick of eating candy?
Turn it into a new kind of candy and eat more of it.
We're just stepping (lumbering?) out of our post-Halloween sugar haze, and the treat bag pickings are slim. Aeros, Smarties, and those little wrapped rice candies abound. The boyfriend circles our son's candy bag like a chocolate vulture, but we're all kind of over what's left. Desperate times.
This recipe is kind of like chocolate upcycling. First we have the fudgiest brownies, baked in muffin tins and drizzled with a thin black cocoa glaze (you can use regular cocoa--no big deal). Top them with Smarties (kind of like M&Ms to you non-Canadians) but any leftover chocolate will do. Just bake, glaze, and sprinkle your way to a dressed-up treat.
