What to do with leftover Halloween candy? Make a Frankenstein brownie | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

It’s only been a week but we already miss Halloween. We’ve also come to realize that there’s been a lot of carnage from the festivities, from assorted candies to half-empty alcohol bottles in the flurry of parties that happened last weekend.

If you’re not quite over Halloween, make a special treat from those leftover sweets the kids have collected. Jomel Salas of Brownie Bar taught us how to make a Frankenstein Brownie. “I call it that because it has a little bit of everything and is just apt for the season when you can make it,” he tells us.

The recipe can call for a number of variations, depending on your preference. You can make it naughty by including liquor, especially if you’re serving it to grown-ups, or make it healthier by replacing the chocolate with dried fruits and nuts, or opt for coco sugar if you want to check your sugar intake. Jomel also suggests topping the brownies with some gummy bears or combining some Ferrero Rocher balls in the mix for those who have quite the sweet tooth.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s first look at the basic recipe and see how it goes.
