Peanutty Candy Bar Brownies

Yield 3 dozen
These brownies have a gooey center when served warm. The longer they cool, the firmer the candy bar center becomes.

Ingredients

  • 1 (21-ounce) package fudge brownie mix (we tested with Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 (7-ounce) peanuts in milk chocolate candy bars (we tested with Mr. Goodbar)

How to Make It

  1. Prepare brownie mix batter according to package directions, using 1/4 cup oil instead of 1/2 cup as package directs. Stir peanut butter into batter. Spread half of brownie batter into an ungreased 13" x 9" x 2" baking pan. Place whole candy bars across batter. Spread remaining batter over candy bars.

  2. Bake at 350° for 29 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
