Candy Bar Brownies

8 Nov

Hi again!

I made brownies!!

Candy Bar Brownies!!!

I don’t know about you, but we are drowning in left-over Halloween candy at our house.

I decided today was a good time to consolidate it all.  It’s easier to keep track of what you have, if it’s all in one place…..don’t you think?

So, while the kids were at school;  I separated the candy stuff from the chocolate stuff.  Now there are 2 LARGE bowls of treats, instead of secret stashes hidden in every room, nook, and cranny.  (Although, I’m pretty sure they each have a few favorites tucked away somewhere.)

Anyway, as I was putting the overflowing chocolate-filled bowl into the fridge; inspiration hit me.

Enter….candy bar brownies!!

I took 2 handfuls of mini and funsize Snickers, Milky Way, 3 Musketeers and Twix bars, and chopped them up.

I baked a brownie layer for a few minutes, and then spread the candy bars all over the top.

Baked them for another few minutes, and then added mini-marshmallows.

Back in the oven for one last time, to let the marshmallows get golden and puffy.

Gave them a chocolate drizzle……..and WOW!


Candy Bar Brownies

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups of chocolate candy bars, chopped thin
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mini-marshmallows
  • chocolate syrup, for drizzle (optional)

–  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.

–  In a medium bowl, mix cake mix, butter and egg until combined.  It will be thick.

–  Press into the bottom of prepared pan.

–  Bake 12 minutes, until the brownies are soft set.

–  Evenly spread chopped candy bars onto the semi-baked brownies.  Bake 6 minutes.

–  Remove from oven, and sprinkle marshmallows over the top of the candy bar layer.

–  Bake an additional 6 minutes (until the marshmallows are puffy and turning golden), remove from oven.

–  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

–  Cool completely before cutting.

I have to say, I love the Snickers bars in these……the peanuts totally stand out.

You can play around with all kinds of chocolate bars to create different flavored brownies.  They are a great way to use up your candy stash, so let me know how yours turn out! 🙂


Love, Lara
