Loaded Fudgy Candy Bar Brownies

Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 30 min.
Total Time: 40 min.
Servings: 8

What you need

2 tablespoons brewed coffee (leftover from the morning brew is fine), optional but recommend to enhance chocolate flavor and does not make brownies taste like coffee
about 12 to 15 fun-size candy bars, diced in half if it's larger like a Twix (I used Butterfinger, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers, Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Nestle Crunch, Twix)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon instant espresso coffee granules, optional but recommend to enhance chocolate flavor and does not make brownies taste like coffee
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup M&M's for topping, optional
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional and to taste
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, for topping
10 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/4 sticks), melted
3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (natural or Dutch-process, I used Hershey's natural)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

How to do it

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil leaving overhang on the sides, spray with cooking spray; set aside. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add the butter and heat on high power to melt, about 1 minute. Allow butter to cool momentarily so you don't scramble the eggs.

2. Add the eggs, sugars, optional coffee, vanilla, and whisk to combine.

3. Add the cocoa powder, optional espresso granules, optional salt, and whisk to combine. If your cocoa powder is lumpy, it could take a couple minutes of vigorous whisking.

4. Add the flour and stir until just combined, don't overmix. Turn two-thirds of the batter out into prepared pan, reserving the remaining one-third; just eyeball it. The reserved amount should be about 1 1/2 cups; set reserved portion aside.

5. Place candy bar pieces onto batter, distributed evenly, in an even, flat layer. I made 5 rows with about 5 pieces candy per row. Top with reserved batter to cover candy. Gently smooth and distribute batter with a spatula or knife Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Evenly sprinkle the optional M&M's over the top.

6. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until done; don't overbake. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out mostly clean, but will likely have a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow brownies to cool in pan for about 1 hour before lifting out with foil overhang and slicing. Brownies will keep airtight at room temperature or refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. I prefer to store them in the fridge and serve them slightly chilled.
