These Easy Milky Way Brownies are an easy brownies recipe but also like a candy bar cookie recipe, too.
Easy brownies because they’ve got just 4 ingredients and they’re in the oven in about 5 minutes (at least for the first first phase).
But as an easy candy bar cookie recipe, these brownies call for chopped bits of the Milky Way chocolate bar.
The candy bar’s popular American version, developed nearly 100 years ago, is made of chocolate nougat topped with caramel and covered with milk chocolate.
(European versions omit the caramel.)
Prep time: 5 minutes (plus time for chopping candy bars)
Bake time: 30 minutes, divided
Makes 2-3 dozen brownies, depending on how you cut them
1 18-20 ounce package German chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup (1 ½ sticks) butter or margarine, melted
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
20 ounces (1 ½ bags) Milky Way miniature candy bars, Milky Way Bites, or any kind of Milky Way candy bars, chopped
Special Baking Tips for Easy Milky Way Brownies
You need not smooth the second layer of brownie batter over surface evenly.
If you like to eat these brownies cold, know that when you store the brownies in the refrigerator, the caramel in the Milky Way candies may become quite firm and harder to chew.
