Use up leftover candy from Halloween, Christmas or Easter and make Candy-Stuffed Brownies. The brownie base is reduced in sugar and fat and it uses healthy coconut oil to accommodate the candy stuffing. Delish!
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Melt together unsweetened chocolate and coconut oil. I do that on the stove top but you can also use the microwave.
Stir in sugar, vanilla, eggs, salt, optional coffee/espresso powder, and flour. Stir after each addition.
Pour half of the batter into prepared pan, place candy bars on top and pour remaining batter into pan. Sprinkle with smarties or chocolate chips etc. and bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only crumbs but no batter attached.
Cool before cutting into squares. Store in an air-tight container.
