I look forward to the cavity-inducing sweetness of candy corn recipes all year long. As soon as Labor Day rolls around, I begin seeing that yellow and orange sugary goodness popping up in stores, and then, I get creative.

I wanted to come up with a new candy corn recipe for dessert at our Halloween movie night this year, so I grabbed a box of Hershey’s Cocoa Powder and a bag of candy corn and got creative. The result? Scrumptious candy corn brownies!

I made a basic chocolate brownie from scratch, except that I topped them with candy corns.

As the brownies cook, the candy corns melt and cover the top is sugary, Halloween-y sweetness.
