Don’t throw away all those candy bars; you can turn them into rich and delicious cheesecake brownies! In the latest Halloween edition of the Taste of Home magazine there is a recipe that calls for your favorite candy bar not only in the cheesecake layer, but the brownies too. I had lots of candy bars so I couldn’t wait to make these. They’re simple to make, they use staple ingredients and they bake up in about half an hour. These are rich and delicious, so enjoy!
