Intro: Candy Bar Brownies

Candy bar brownies combine delicious brownies and caramel, with tasty mini candy bars. This super chocolatey treat is hard to pass up!

For the fifth year in a row, trick-or-treaters did not come to my house :( And, for the fifth year in a row I had a huge bag of candy left over. Instead of just chowing down on the chocolate bars, I decided to try something different. I mixed up some of these leftover bars with brownie mix, topped it with caramel, and ended up with a delicious dessert.

Step 1: Supplies

What you need will kind of depend on what you have :)


  • Brownie mix of choice (I used a box one) + ingredients to make brownies
  • Candy bars - below is how many I used, but feel free to use as many or as few as you want
    • 3 fun size Twix
    • 7 fun size Snickers
    • 5 fun size Milky Way
    • 5 fun size bags M&Ms - for on top
  • Caramel Sauce - optional

You can also use a few whole candy bars if you don't have the mini ones sitting around

Suggested Combinations:

  • Snickers + Milky Way + Twix + 3 Musketeers
  • Recess Peanut Butter Cup + Butterfingers
  • Twix + Kit Kat + Crunch Bar
  • M&M + Peanut M&M + Snickers

Step 2: Mix Up Brownies

Time to mix up your brownies!

Once the brownies are mixed, you can throw in your candy bars. I chose to cut mine up into pieces first, but you don't have to. I suggest you do though.

Put in a pan and bake!

It took longer to bake than the suggested time on the box, but I would still start there and then add time if you need too.

Step 3: Toppings

I decided I wanted M&M's and caramel sauce on top of my brownies.

I smashed up my M&M's in a bag because I didn't want whole ones on top of the brownies. For some reason it just didn't feel as nice-looking to me.

I made jessyratfink's caramel sauce . My sugar, must have been dark sugar because it came out, well, dark. You can also use store-bought if you want; thicker is probably better.

Step 4: Top Your Brownies!

Time to top your brownies! I put everything on while it was still hot in the pan. This caused the M&M's to get soft on top and I liked it that way. The caramel also kind of helps hold on the M&M's so I put that on first.

There are so many holes in my brownies because I kept taking them out to check them and they were never done! And I couldn't find toothpicks, so I used skewers.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Eat up your brownies! They're pretty awesome.

    I got to "test" eat them after Penolopy Bulnick baked them and they are the best brownies I've ever had. Seriously. They are super moist with the perfect texture.

    Thanks! I only managed to have one, but since I drank my frappe first, it took me a while to finish it!
