Choose your favorite candy bar to make the perfect brownies!
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

1-1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Package of six small candy bars (Snickers, Milky Way or Heath are all great!) chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, also chopped into smaller pieces
Melt butter in a bowl in the microwave. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside 1/4 cup. Add remaining dry ingredients to the egg mixture. Mix well.

Toss candy bar pieces and chocolate chips into reserved flour mixture; stir into batter. Transfer to a greased baking pan baking at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack. Chill in refrigerator before cutting with a plastic knife.
By tossing the candy bar pieces and chocolate chips into the reserved flour mixture prior to adding to the batter prevents the candy/chocolate chips to sink to the bottom of the brownies.
