Candy Bar Brownies from the Vee Bar Guest Ranch in Laramie Wyoming
2 cups sugar
¾ cup melted butter (1 ½ sticks)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cocoa
3 milk chocolate Hershey Bars, finely chopped
3 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts
For variation you can substitute with other favorite standard-size candy bars in the same amounts listed.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9”x 13” baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla extract; beat until smooth with an electric mixer.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. Sift the dry ingredients into the egg mixture mixing well.
Fold in the chopped candy and pour the mixture into prepared 9”x 13” baking pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before cutting.
I replaced the peanut butter cups with Snicker’s Bars and they were delicious!
