Candy Bar Brownies

I thought the only way to make brownies more chocolaty was to add chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. I never in my wildest dreams thought about adding candy bars!


After hearing this idea, I quickly went to the store and was stunned that there were soooooo many different kinds. Yes, yes, I always knew there were many, but now I was standing there trying to figure out which would go best inside a brownie!
So, it turns out, I couldn’t decide! I grabbed a few of my favorites and made a mad dash to the checkout in case I were to change my mind.
I ended up with 10 different kinds! It was fun eating it as you never knew what candy bar was next!
