Candy Bars

I love these treats!  They are so easy, so yummy (butter and brown sugar!) and they are never the same twice since you get to choose the candy filling!  Pretty sure it is a Taste of Home recipe.

I am working on a movie right now called “Unicorn City” and we have been out in Alpine in the hot sun all week and the grip and electric guys have been taking such good care of me and making sure that I have shade over the monitor for me and the monitor and getting me Diet Coke on ice when they head into town; it has made the week so much better for me and I wanted to thank them . . . what better way than with food?!

Also, since I am working 6 days a week on this movie my posts might be a little sparse for the next few weeks but I’ll be back at it soon!


1 yellow cake mix

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 stick butter, melted

2 eggs

1 cup chopped candy bar pieces such as Snickers, Butterfingers, etc

Preheat oven to 350.  Blend cake mix, brown sugar, butter and eggs on low for 2 minutes.  Fold in candy.  Pour batter into greased 9 x 13″ pan.  Bake until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 – 25 minutes.

This is a great recipe to make after holidays like Easter, Halloween and Christmas when you can get candy for 50 – 75% off.

Today when I made it I used some Toblerone candy bar, some Dove dark chocolate candy bar, a Hershey bar and then some miniature candy bars like Nestle Crunch and Three Musketeers and some Hershey Bliss squares.   As you might be able to tell, I use more than a cup of candy in this recipe.
