Day 92: Kit Kat Brownies

Okay, Halloween is tomorrow. I have three boys going trick-or-treating. If each boy collects 1 standard sized pillow case full of candy, yet we only allow them to keep one zip lock bag to actually eat, How much candy will be left???

ANSWER: Enough for mom to steal some to bake with!

Can you tell we have been working on math story problems lately?

But seriously, what better way to use some of that Halloween candy? Let your creativity flow. The baking options are endless when you have pillow cases full of supplies.

I decided to try meshing two of my favorites: Kit Kat bars and brownies.

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup dark cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Crushed Kit Kat Bars


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Stir together melted butter and sugars.
Stir in eggs and vanilla extract.
Mix in flour, dark cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
Pour into a greased brownie pan (11x7)
Press crushed Kit Kat Bars on top of brownie batter

Bake for 20-30 minutes until knife inserted midway from the edge of the pan comes out clean.
Let cool, slice and enjoy!

These were a BIG HIT with the boys.

Have a wonderful and Happy Halloween!!!

Below are some of the boys favorite costumes.

Dane was Britney Spears last year.

Noah was Bacon.
This year, Ian is The Flash.
