Leftover Halloween Chocolate – Baked into Squares
“Is the idea to make something more tantalizing so that we eat it faster?”, asked Derek as I was making these squares.
I saw this recipe on one of my favourite baking blogs and decided that I’d rather get rid of all the mini chocolate bars in one fell swoop, then have them call my name multiple times a day from their hiding place way at the back of the highest deepest cabinet in our kitchen.
Here they are fresh out of the oven
Here they are ready to eat
The verdict: Just so-so. Too sweet even for my sweet tooth. Perhaps a gooier or nuttier chocolate bar selection might have been better, like Oh Henry or Wunderbar, but of course I only had the nut-free kind…
This recipe made a HUGE pan of squares so about 3/4 of them are wrapped up tight in our basement freezer.
Will I make them again? No.
Will I serve the rest that are packed up in my freezer? Yes. They would be good as part of sweet tray with some less sweet options. Or will do in a pinch when a chocolate craving is just unbearable.
