Snicker Brownies

I made these on Sunday as treats for the staff at my school on the first day. So many people wanted the recipe that I'm posting it here, but it's so easy that I am truly embarrassed to even call it a recipe. When I say it's easy, I mean EASY.

1 family size box brownie mix with frosting (I used the Betty Crocker Supreme Frosted Brownie mix)

10 small Snickers (not mini) candy bars, sliced into thin slices

1 can vanilla frosting

10 small Snicker (not mini) candy bars, diced

Spray 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray. Prepare brownie mix as directed on box. Spread half of brownie batter in pan to cover bottom. Carefully place sliced snickers on top of brownie batter- one at a time- so the entire pan of dough is covered. Carefully spread remaining brownie batter on top of Snicker layer. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done. Cool completely. In large bowl, mix brownie frosting, vanilla frosting, and diced Snicker bars till well blended. Spread over cool brownies.

Of course in this recipe you can use any other type of candy bar that you like or that is on sale. And I'll be honest, when I was throwing this recipe together, I only intended to use the frosting that came with the brownies- but once I added the Snicker pieces, it was way too thick to spread. So I added a can of white frosting- because that is what I had on hand. I would have grabbed chocolate, had I had some in the pantry. But I honestly think it was better not using all chocolate because it made the frosting yummy and lighter with only a hint of chocolate.
