Trick or Treat Brownie Recipe

Ever notice how those fun-size candy bars that we purchase long before Halloween (in case the stores run out early) disappear long before Halloween? And then we purchase more to make sure not to run out, only to find that we have dozens left after Halloween that absolutely must be eaten? The following Trick or Treat Brownies will insure that there are no leftover candy bars, because they will be inhaled by all of the visiting ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and you, of course. Actually these brownies are so good, you’ll find yourself making them several times; they use up that ubiquitous zucchini, and even though these are not health food, they have a little nutrition and fiber where normally there wouldn’t be, which is a hidden bonus. The zucchini makes the brownies so moist, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been adding it all along.
These brownies take very little time to make because they start with an easy homemade Mom’s Brownie Mix, (although I haven’t tested it personally, store-bought brownie mix is very similar- except that it contains preservatives and several things most of us can’t pronounce - and will most likely work in a pinch) and have very few ingredients.

Almost any fun-size candy bars will work, as well as M&M’s, which I use to fill in around the bars; Kit-Kat bars, however, don’t taste as good as other bars in these brownies because those crunchy layers end up tasting like cardboard when baked, so just eat those Kit-Kats while you are placing the other candy bars on top of the brownies.
