Okay, okay....these are not *those* kind of mystery brownies. We're not in the 70's anymore so let's all move on. These are so good! I got 4 different candy bars and cut them up and tucked them inside these little goodies. You could use the same kind of candy if you're not into being surprised but then you couldn't call them "mystery brownies" anymore, could you?
2 sticks butter ~ melted
4 tablespoons water
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
candy bars of your choice cut into 12 pieces. I used Reese's peanut
butter cups (which I didn't cut up), Snickers with almonds, Kit-Kat and
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, eggs, sugar, water and vanilla.
Add the cocoa and the salt and stir gently.
Next stir in the flour and the baking powder.
Pour half of the batter into the pan.
Arrange the candy bar pieces on top of the batter. I did 3 across and 4 down.
Pour remaining batter over the candy bar pieces and smooth batter to cover.
Bake 30 - 40 minutes until brownies are done.
Allow to cool completely before cutting.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
