Candy Bar Brownies

Unbelievably easy and delicious!

I couldn't believe it when my friend told me how good these are!  After all, it's only two main ingredients...a boxed brownie mix and candy bars! 

The candy bars are placed between two layers of brownie batter.  It melts a little into the brownie, but still stays intact enough to recognize the candy.

They taste of rich, chocolate brownie and then the toffee almond candy comes through and takes it to a whole different level of deliciousness!  "Magical" is the word my granddaughter uses to describe these, too...that's one of her favorite words for Grammy's cooking.  Gotta love that kid!

Oh, you don't have to use a box mix either, it works great with your favorite homemade brownie recipe.  But, if you need a quick dessert, just use the box mix, I won't tell anyone.


1 Family-size box brownie mix (for 9x13" pan) OR your favorite homemade recipe (plus whatever ingredients are on the box directions)
2 (6.8oz.) Giant-size Hershey's Symphony candy bar, or any large similar bar. (Symphony is the best, according to my hubby.  But, I'm willing to try Butterfingers, Kit Kats, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and others.)

Preheat oven to 350'F. or 325'F. if using a glass baking dish.

Prepare brownie mix according to the box directions.  Stir just until all mixed.  Don't over-stir brownies, they'll get really tough.

Prepare 7x11" pan.  Line pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Pour 1/2 brownie mixture into the pan and spread out with a spatula.

Unwrap candy bars and break into individual sections.  Place on top of the batter, so they cover the surface.  (I always have a few pieces leftover.  But, don't worry, they never go to waste.  :))

Pour remaining batter over the candy bar sections and spread to the edges to cover candy.

Bake according to the brownie mix time and temperature. This takes about 35-40 minutes.

Let cool, then lift from the pan using the edges of the foil, before cutting.

Shield me from the influences of evil people, Lord, so I’ll be free to live life Your way. ~Psalm 119:134
