Witch’s Brew Brownies

Witch's Brew Brownies

Now that Halloween is over and my house is chock-full of candy from my daughter’s trick-or-treating loot, I set out to use up some of the surplus. 

I’ve made brownies in the past using applesauce but have never even contemplated using prunes. The prunes deliver a superbly moist consistency that is unmatched! And no need to worry about them tasting like “a brownie made with prunes,” the flavor is fabulous. Trust me, if you have a few people in your house that are shy of dried plums, shhh… no one will ever know!
