For better or for worse, we are getting to the end of another semester. This means finals, darties and possibly cleaning out your room before the year comes to a close.
If you are anything like me, then you steal candy from most campus events and save all holiday candy, and have accumulated quite the candy stash. In the event that you do not feel like eating the candy by itself, I have just the solution for you.
This brownie recipe is the perfect dumping ground for any leftover, preferably chocolate candies. It is extremely simple and you can use any brownie recipe or a boxed mix.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
Handful or so of your favorite chocolate candies (leftover Valentines Day or Easter candies work really well!)
*You can also substitute any sort of boxed mix or brownie recipe of your choice
