Candy Bar Brownies are delicious and super rich. Chopped candy bars are folded into the batter and into the creamy chocolate frosting for an incredibly delicious bar cookie recipe.

You can use your favorite candy bar in these luscious brownies. One tip: If you use Snickers or Milky Way, chop them just before you add them to the batter, since they can dry out quickly. 

These brownies are perfect for a bake sale or for a holiday cookie tray. Serve them with a big glass of milk for a fabulous after school treat.

What You'll Need

  • 2 boxes brownie mix (each box should make an 8" square pan of brownies)
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 ounces Snickers bars (or Milky Way, chopped)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (semisweet, or 12 ounces chocolate candy bars)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 10 ounces Snickers bars (or Milky Way, chopped)

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 13" x 9" pan with nonstick baking spray containing flour; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine both boxes of brownie mix, oil, water, and eggs; mix with a wooden spoon until blended. Stir in first amount of chopped candy bars.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until brownies are set and crust is shiny. Don't over bake the brownies. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.

In a medium microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute; remove and stir. Continue microwaving for 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until mixture is smooth.

Stir in the second batch of chopped candy bars and spoon and spread the frosting over the warm brownies. Let the brownies stand on the wire rack until set; cut into bars.
