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.
- 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!
