Candy Bar Brownies Ingredients

  • Chocolate chunks – semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • Butter – salted sweet cream butter
  • Baking chocolate – bittersweet baking chocolate
  • Sugar – granulated sugar
  • Vanilla – pure vanilla extract
  • Eggs – large eggs

  • Snickers candy bar
  • Milky Way candy bar

It does not matter if the candy pieces are full-size or fun-size for this brownie recipe. We used the fun-size simply because that is what was in stock. These would also make great brownies to make after Halloween when you have an abundance of leftovers Halloween candy on hand.

You can break the candy bars into small bite-sized pieces or chop them with a knife. Allow the brownies to rest for up to 15 minutes before adding the candy pieces.

While we used Whoppers, Hershey’s, Kit Kats, Snickers, and Milky Ways, plenty of other candy bars would also be delicious. You might try peanut butter cups, Twix, Butterfinger, or 3 Musketeers.

How to Make Candy Bar Brownies

FIRST STEP: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Be sure to leave an overlap or “sling” of parchment paper. Put it aside.

SECOND STEP: Whisk together 1 cup of flour and unsweetened cocoa powder in a small mixing bowl. Put it aside.

THIRD STEP: Toss the chocolate chunks in the 1 tablespoon of flour. Remove the excess flour and set it aside.

FOURTH STEP: Using a 2 to 3-quart saucepan over low heat, add the butter and chopped baking chocolate. Stir constantly until the butter and chocolate are completely melted. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a large mixing bowl to cool. (The mixture won’t be hot, just slightly warm.)

FIFTH STEP: Whisk the granulated sugar and vanilla into the cooled chocolate and butter.

SIXTH STEP: Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

SEVENTH STEP: Stir in the cocoa and flour mixture, and be sure not to over-mix, just until no streaks of flour are visible.

EIGHTH STEP: Fold in the flour-coated chocolate chunks.

NINTH STEP: Spoon in and evenly spread the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes away with only a slight bit of brownie crumbs. Allow the brownies to rest for 5 minutes.

TENTH STEP: Sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the top of the brownies. (I sprinkled the larger chopped pieces first and ended with the Whoppers). Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Can I freeze these homemade brownies?

You can freeze these soft brownies that are loaded with candy. They should keep in the freezer for up to two months. Make sure to wrap them in at least two layers of plastic wrap to protect the candy bars from freezer burn. The multiple layers of plastic wrap are necessary due to the changes that happen to candy in the freezer.

Can I use boxed brownie mix instead of homemade?

Certainly! If you want a quick and easy treat, you could make these loaded fudgy candy bar brownies using a boxed brownie mix and then just add your favorite candy bars on top.

Can I use different chocolate bars for this brownie recipe?

This easy brownies recipe is very flexible, and you can top them with any combination of your favorite chocolate, including Reese’s peanut butter cups, Almond Joy, or other favorites. Just pick your favorite candy bar and have fun!

How to Store Candy Bar Brownies

IN THE COUNTER: Store leftover candy bar brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the batch of brownies for up to 2 months. Because of the candy bar topping, you will need to wrap the brownies in 2 layers of plastic wrap and finally in a gallon-size ziplock. Allow the brownies to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
