Brownies: Fully loaded

Homemade brownies are a decadent delight. But if you’re a busy professional or active momma on the go, from-scratch recipes aren’t always practical. These sweet treats start with chocolate box mix brownies, take a helping hand from the candy aisle and finish with happy smiles.

Much like other American favorites (potato chips, pizza and sandwiches, for example), the world’s first brownie was the result of a culinary faux pas! This happy accident resulted from a lack of baking powder. However it happened, brownies are now one of the most popular desserts in North America.

These fully loaded brownies aren’t just simple — they’re versatile. A simple box mix and your favorite candy will help you make a brownie that will satisfy your sweet tooth in a whole new way! Use Twix or plain caramel candies for a sweet and sticky treat. Go with Snickers or Almond Joy for a nutty twist. Like chocolate covered cherries? Cherry Mash are hard to find in some areas, but if you can find them, they’re a delicious delight.
