Candy Bar Browines

Yummy chocolate goodness
     Some days all you want to do is indulge.  You need to get a sinful fix.  For me that fix is chocolate.  Not just any chocolate, but something gooey and rich.  When you take a bite out of it the first words you say is, "Oh My God!"  That is definitely how these candy bar brownies make you feel.
     Like everything else I start by finding a recipe online and then I tweak it.  This recipe came from Oxmoor House June 2007.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour                              4 large eggs
1 cup unsweetened cocoa                                 1/4 cup brewed espresso
1/2 tsp baking powder                                      2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda                                 1/2 cup snickers, chopped
1/4 tsp salt                                                      1/2 cup peanut butter cups, chopped
1 1/2 cups butter, melted                                 1/4 twix, chopped
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar                               1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar         1/2 cup walnuts coarsely chopped
Coat a 13" X 9" pan with cooking spray. Line pan with aluminum foil, allowing ends to hang over short sides of pan.  Tuck overlapping ends under rim on short sides.  Coat foil with cooking spray; set pan aside.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.

Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth; add eggs, coffee, and vanilla, beating just until blended.  Add flour mixture; beat at medium speed  until blended. Stir in candy, white chocolate, and nuts.

Spoon batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly.

Bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 58 minutes.  Cool completely in  pan on wire rack. 

Carefully invert brownies from pan using overlapping foil as handles; remove foil and cut
brownies into squares.

*note*  check the brownies around 50 minutes into baking.  Remember oven temperatures vary and nothing is worse than burnt brownies.
Also, you can use any candy you want.  Next time I might try peppermint patties or even almond joys.  It's entirely up to you.
