Halloween Candy Fudge Brownies
If you enjoy Halloween candy, brownies, fudge and eating 2 (or 3) desserts in one, than these Halloween Candy Fudge Brownies are perfect for you.
They’re such a fun and easy dessert to make for Halloween or to make after Halloween when you’re up to your devil horns in leftover Halloween candy.
Candy Stuffed Brownies
This recipe begins with a batch of my favourite brownie recipe. I’ve used this recipe for almost every brownie recipe on this blog.
To stuff the brownies with the Halloween candy, you have two options. The first option is to chop the candy and fold it into the brownie batter. The second option is to pour half of the brownie batter into the baking pan, then place the whole fun-sized candy bars on top before covering it with more batter.
I went with the second option because I wanted the candy bars to remain whole when I sliced the brownies so you could get a perfect view of the candy bar fillings.
Halloween Candy Fudge
This was gonna be a simple brownie recipe, but I realized it’s been so long since I’ve made one of my famous Fudge Brownie Recipes. So at the very last minute, I decided to top these brownies with a simple chocolate fudge.
This fudge is completely fool-proof. Only 2 ingredients are required: semisweet chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Simply melt those 2 ingredients together and spread it over the brownie.
Just like the brownies itself, you can either chop some candy bars and add it to the fudge or you could press the candy bars into the top of the fudge. Again, I chose the second option because it’s more visually appealing.
Once all of the layers have set, lift them out of the pan and slice them into squares with a hot knife. Chilled brownies + hot knife = clean, beautiful squares! Although I cut these while cold, I prefer to enjoy them at room temperature, that way the fudge, brownies and candy bars melt in your mouth with each bite!
Super delicious, super easy and super fun. Go ahead and snatch a bag of your kids halloween candy to make these decadent fudge brownies. Trust me, they’ll be glad you did!

Let’s get baking!
- 6 oz dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Halloween Candy Bars, Frozen
- 1 and 1/4 cup (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Halloween Candy, chopped (I used mini chocolate bars, M&M’s, Reese’s Cups etc.)
For the Candy Brownies:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (325°F for dark pans) (180°C). Line a 9x9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving about 2-inches hanging over the sides and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- Place chopped chocolate and cubed butter in a large bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir constantly until the butter and chocolate are both melted and combined, about 3-4 minutes.
- Remove bowl from heat and immediately add both sugars, whisk until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.
- Add eggs, egg yolk and vanilla and slowly whisk until combined. Do not overmix. Add flour, cocoa, and salt and stir with a rubber spatula until well blended.
- Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and place a few bars of mini candy bars in an even layer. Sprinkle some M&M’s over the brownies. There’s no specific amount just place enough candy bars to cover the surface. Pour the rest of the batter on top to cover the Oreos and cookie dough.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
For the Candy Fudge:
- Add the condensed milk and chocolate chips to a large heat-proof bowl and melt over a saucepan of simmering water stirring constantly until fully melted and smooth.
- If you want, you could fold in about 1 and 1/2 cups of chopped candy bars. Or you could pour the plain fudge on top of the brownies, then do what you did with the brownies and press some candy bars on top, cutting some of them in half.
- Cover pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to set, 2 hours or overnight.
- Once everything is set, lift the brownies out of the pan and use a hot knife to cut into even squares. Enjoy!
- Store leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
