Twix Brownies

by Heather on March 30, 2011

Candy bars.  I’m a bit obsessed lately, what with the Peanut Butter Snickers Cookie Bars, the Reese’s ice cream in my freezer, and now these Twix brownies.


It’s an obsession I can live with!

Besides the obvious fact that there’s candy bars in the middle of a luscious brownie, I think we all know that the best part of these is sneaking the little bits of chopped candy bar that happen to “stray” away from the rest of the pack.


Survival of the fittest in my kitchen!

Would you just look at the picture below though?  I mean really – who could say no to that bowl ‘o’ goodness right there?  I think we’re all adults here and can admit that, if left alone long enough with that bowl, it would have several finger dips in it.  If there was any left at all!

So, how good were these?  Good enough that I didn’t even wait til they cooled to dig in, leaving a spoon as the best serving utensil.  There’s nothing like eating fresh brownies spoon-to-mouth from the oven.


Boy howdy.


  • 1 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 cup + 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 Twix candy bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and sugar.  Add the eggs and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips and Twix pieces.  Spread into the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


Eat while hot.  Burn your mouth (ok, not really).  Totally worth it!

Let’s just say candy explosion doesn’t begin to describe it!

Oh. My. This recipe is perfection. What’s better than brownies? Brownies with candy!!


2 Lauren at Keep It Sweet March 30, 2011

There is no way I’d wait for these to cool! Melted twix inside of a brownie sounds amazing.


3 Shannon March 30, 2011

Twix used to be my favorite candy bar- and what I would ALWAYS grab when our mom let us get something at the store…
Still love it. And am a fan of throwing them in blondies! (great minds think alike?)

Twix is my 2nd favorite candy bar. You have me all sorts of drooling right now.


10 Karen March 30, 2011

Those look awesome! I love twix. Am I the only one who eats the caramel off the top then eats the cookie? Maybe I shouldn’t admit that… :)


11 Maria March 30, 2011

I love adding mix ins to my brownies! Love these!


12 Katrina March 30, 2011

Yum! I would like to try your brownies. I like that the recipe is for a 9×13 but not SO full of butter and eggs and the brownies look great! I love putting all kinds of candy in brownies, too!


13 bakebooks March 30, 2011

Oh my God – I would eat that whole pan by myself…that’s dangerous. But holy crap looks amazing! I love Twix bars…I am so that sucker that “has” to throw one in with the groceries at the check-out line…with a People magazine…and gum…and whatever else will waste my money ;)


14 Katie @ Health for the Whole Self March 30, 2011

I think I just died and went to brownie heaven.


15 brandi March 30, 2011

16 Tara March 30, 2011

Oh. My. Heavens.

I’m making those tonight.


17 Kelly March 30, 2011

Twix are my all time favorite candy bar. When I was a kid my parents sent me to summer camp every year. It was a 5 week sleep away camp and I loved every minute of it. Once a week we were allowed to go to the camp store and buy a candy bar. Every single week I chose a Twix. It got to the point where no one would even ask me what I wanted…Twix it was. I am going to have to make these brownies if nothing else than to bring back some childhood memories in a completely decadent and over the top kind of way! :)

Twix is one of my favorite chocolate bars and I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a brownie.

24 Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather March 30, 2011

Can you really go wrong with a candy bar in a brownie? Hmmmm I think not!


25 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg March 30, 2011

Twix used to be my FAVORITE candy bar…we only got to eat them at my grandmothers, but I would always steal a big handful to take home, ha!

This is AWESOME !!
I love Twix :D
I made it today with my mom..
and here’s the pictures and the result :)


36 Jaime June 28, 2011

I made these with my sister tonight and for some reason the batter was so thick and dry! We made two batches and they were both the same… the second batch is in the oven now, we’ll see how they turn out! Don’t think they will cook all the way through though! Any suggestions on what we did wrong??


37 Heather June 29, 2011

interesting…i would say that maybe not adding the extra 3 Tbsp of flour might be the best bet then. sometimes ingredients will vary (i.e. they can be drier at higher altitudes where i live), so if it’s too dry then eliminate some of the dry ingredients or increase the wet ingredients slightly.

i hope that helps!


38 Dessi July 9, 2011

I think the only thing that would make that better would be as soon as they’re out of the oven, top with ice cream!! :DD


39 Lisa July 23, 2011

I am making these brownies right now. I am wondering what the 1 tsp of vanilla is for? You have it in the ingredient list but not in the directions??


40 Daisy August 17, 2011

Oh my gawd you just created a monster. Twix are my favorite candy of all time because they’re so crunchy!! I love brownies because they’re so gooey and moist. Now my mouth is watering because just thinking of the wonderful combo of both crunchy and gooey is just setting me in a tizzy!
