Candy Bar Brownies

These brownies are very easy and very gooey! The great thing about them is they take only a few simple items and can be changed simply by using a different type of candy bar.

1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup melted butter
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
4 (2.16 ounce) bars chocolate candy bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix with melted butter or margarine and condensed milk. Spread out 1/2 of the mixture into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Slice candy bars into little slices. Lay these on top of the baked crust. With the remaining batter-place it on top of the candy bars. I usually get my hands wet or spray them with cooking spray, then pick up some dough and pat it down and lay it over the candy bar layer. You won't be able to cover the entire pan and that's okay. Put pan back into the oven and bake it for another 20 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: Buy the long flat packages of 8 little candy bars when they are on sale for $1.00 (which is so much cheaper than the little ones in a bag) and throw them in the freezer to use in recipes like these. Depending on how much your family loves chocolate, you might have to hide them! :)
