The abundance of candy before and after Halloween isn’t necessarily a problem, but it can make a life of moderation problematic. Fun size candy bars creep up everywhere: in the break room at work, in little bowls at reception desks, and in various stashes at home—out of sight, out of mind, right?

This dessert is essentially candy bars bound with brownie batter, a baked confection. Cut them into tiny squares, like truffles. A combination of Twix, Snickers, and Milky Way bars in these is especially nice. Every bite offers a variety of textures, from crunchy nuts to sticky caramel to smooth-melting milk chocolate.
