One Bowl Brownies with Almond Joy Bars

Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon brewed coffee or you can substitute water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 fun-sized Almond Joy or other candy bars chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9 or 8x8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Stir together melted butter, sugar, and cocoa. Stir in eggs, vanilla extract, coffee, and salt. Carefully stir in flour. (The coffee just adds a richness to the brownies, but you can use water if you prefer.) Spread in prepared pan. The batter will be thick.
  • Sprinkle chopped Almond Joys (or substitute your favorite candy bars) over the top. Bake for about 18-24 minutes, until they loose their glossy sheen and a toothpick comes out 2” from the side with only crumbs sticking to it.
  • Cool completely before slicing into squares.
