Candy Bar Brownies

“Hello?  Is there anybody in there?  Just nod if you can hear me…”  (Singing Pink Floyd’s [or the cover by Scissor Sisters], Comortably Numb)

First, I must apologize for being a horrible blogger.  I know I haven’t been blogging as much as I want to.  It’s not that I am an extremely busy person, it’s just that life gets in the way.

Halloween has come and gone.  Parrish was a black Angry Bird and Ava was the Little Mermaid, their costumes are the last things my dad bought for them.

Don’t they look so excited?!

And so of course they got a TON of candy that they are not allowed to eat.  So what is a mom to do?  I can’t eat the candy to myself or can I?!  Of course I can’t eat all the candy, but I can eat the majority of it.  I did decide to bake with some of it and that is how Kit Kat and Reese’s PB Cups ended up on top of this brownie.


Can you see the Kit Kat and PB Cups?
