Candy Bar Brownies

The following recipe is more of a simple guideline than an actual recipe. I came up with the idea in high school and it's been a family favorite since then.

1 box of 9x13 size brownie mix, baked according to instructions OR 1 homemade batch of brownies
1 large box of chocolate pudding, made according to instructions
1 8-oz container of Cool Whip
Crushed candy bars or candy pieces

Make the box of brownies and the pudding. Let the brownies cool and the pudding set. Next, fold the Cool Whip into the prepared pudding and spread on cooled brownies. Lastly, sprinkle with crushed candy bars, toffee bits, etc. Refrigerate until ready to serve so there's no melting.

Note: I have found M&Ms and Reese's Pieces to be quite hard to chew. I typically stick with crushed Snickers, Butterfinger, or Heath. To crush candy bars, unwrap and freeze in a plastic bag then hit with a hammer.

I'm sure you could try with any combination of pudding and candy. My personal preference is chocolate, so that's why I've written the recipe as such.


  1. I love the sound of Snicker's brownies. What a fun idea. I bet kids would love it!

  2. Thanks Merut! It offers a lot of different possibilities and I'm glad you like the idea.
