We loved this brownies with candy recipe. They are rich and decadent, and you won't believe how easy they are to make. Plus you can make it your own using your favorite candy creating a unique tasty dessert.
A friend that I used to work with gave me the idea of mixing candy in with a basic brownie mix. It's been years since she told me about her invention but I finally got around to trying it.
She would say that she often used leftover Halloween candy and mix it into a boxed brownie mix. For mine, I used Reese's Thins and M&M caramel candies. I wanted to try mini Rolo's and mini Reese's cups but I couldn't find them in the store.
All you need to do is pour a layer of brownie batter on the bottom of a foil lined baking dish. Then lay the candy on top before covering them with the remaining batter.
I tried to keep the candy layer nice and flat so that I could completely cover them with the remaining batter.
Tip: Using foil makes popping the brownies out of the pan a cinch.
Cut them and let them cool.
Other Candy You Can Use
- Thin chocolate candy bars such as Hershey bars in any flavor
- Mini Candy - Rolo Mini Pieces, Reese's Mini Cups, and more
- Different flavors of M&M
- Chocolate chips or other chip flavors such as white chocolate or dark chocolate
Your friends and family will love the surprise candy in the middle, making for a deliciously rich and decadent treat.
