Chocolate lovers – be sure to try these two versions of Milky Way Brownies! The simple layered Milky Way Brownies mimic Milky Way candy bars. They’re like eating a candy bar in bar cookie form. Can you say a-m-a-z-i-ng?

You can get even simpler with Easy Milky Way Brownies, that call for just 4 (count ‘em) ingredients.

Milky Way candy bars debuted in 1923, the brainchild of Mars, Incorporated food company founder Franklin C. Mars. Contrary to urban legend, the candy bar was not named for the galaxy but rather the Milky Way milkshake, a popular malted chocolate dessert. By 1930, Milky Way was the #1 selling candy bar in the world. Today, the bars account for $100 million in sales.

In the American version, the candy bar is made up of layers of chocolate nougat (a creamy, sweet filling) and caramel with a firm milk chocolate coating. European versions omit the caramel layer.
