Easy Loaded Brownies

What’s better than dense, chocolaty brownies? Dense, chocolaty Loaded Brownies, that’s what!

They bake up fudgy and rich with the flavor of your favorite candy bar nestled in the dense brownie and a layer of peanut butter and chocolate on top. The perfect dessert for any chocolate lover!

If you’re like me, you have leftover Halloween candy sitting around. I have to admit that I bought too much for the number of trick-or-treaters we had so I had to do something so I wouldn’t nibble on it for the next month. Am I the only one?

Your favorite chocolate candy bar in every bite!

I could have made my Chocolate Candy Bar Cookies or my Milky Way Cake (which, btw, can be made with other chocolate candy bars) but I wanted something a little different. Enter these indulgent and easy Loaded Brownies, aka Candy Bar Brownies. OMG these are soooo good!

These Loaded brownies start with a box mix. Yep, believe me, you can use our from scratch brownie recipe from our Peanut Butter Brownie Poke Cake, but they come out just as delicious and are quicker to put together with a boxed mix. The flavor of the candy bar takes over while the brownie makes the dense fudgy texture to hold it all together. Topped with the peanut butter cups gives just enough of the peanut butter-chocolate combo flavor we all love.

    These brownies look so yummy! Adding Snicker candy is a great idea for making them so moist inside!

      They have that nice caramel and nutty taste from the Snickers that’s oh so good!
