Every October, comes the night when you dress up as your favorite characters: Spider-Man, Catwoman, and even Guy Fieri or some other food celebrity. You probably also buy and consume lots of candy. Snickers, M&M’s, and Hershey’s are among the candies that Americans eat most. If on November 1st, you find a little too much candy left over in your pumpkin-shaped baskets, you can use it to make dessert.  But what if the trick-or-treaters descend en masse and there's barley an M&M left over? Better buy some extra, just in case.

These easy, tasty bars are like a cross between chocolate chip cookies and brownies. You get a bit of the caramel-brown-butter flavor that many love about chocolate chip cookies, but with the thick and moist texture of brownies. The peanut M&M's add a colorful touch, but you can also use regular ones (or just chocolate chips). — Allison Beck
