Brownies with Candy-Coated Chocolate
Candy-coated chocolates turn these brownies in festive treats. Great for birthday parties and special occasions.
2 cups candy-covered chocolate pieces - divided use
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
- Place 1 1/2 cups candy in a resealable plastic bag and coarsely crush with a rolling pan. Reserve remaining candy for topping.
- Place butter and crushed candy in a large bowl. Microwave until just melted; stirring every 20 seconds; pieces of candy coating will still be visible. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Whisk in sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour.
- Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining chocolate pieces on top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 2-inches from edge comes out clean.
