Candy Bar Brownies

The older our boys get, the more candy we accumulate this time of year. There are more opportunities to get candy and their tummies are more eager. Last week I peeked inside our "candy bowl" and millions of calories were staring back at me. Curses. I have such a hard time resisting candy. I found a boxed brownie mix in the pantry, mixed it up quick and then tossed ALL of the candy bars into the batter. When these delicious little treats were done, I had a few bites, gave one to my boys to share and GAVE THE REST AWAY! 

I love the surprise element in these brownies. Every bite brings a new texture and flavor. 

And they're so dang easy. I almost feel like I'm cheating by writing a post about them!

Go check your candy bowl now! :)

Have a great rest of your week!
