Brownie Sunday made with extra candy.

Leftover Candy Bars

Making a Brownie Sunday is a great way to use up extra candy we normally have around the house after a holiday.  To make this brownie, I simply chopped a cup of chocolate bars and added them to my favorite brownie mix,  Ghirardelli.  

Add Chocolate Sauce

To make a chocolate sauce, I even used a large leftover Hershey bar and melted it down for a delicious sauce.  I melted the Hershey bar in the microwave.  After melting the Hershey bar for a few seconds in the microwave, I stirred it until the chocolate was very smooth.  

Load It Up With Your Favorite Toppings

Next, I added this chocolate topping to a warm slice of brownie filled with candy.  I topped it with ice cream, homemade whipped cream, and pecans. Try adding some sprinkles or additional chopped candy bars.
