"Kids and adults will love this quick bar cookie! Just about any favorite or leftover candy works well. My recommendations are to chop candy finely and use non-stick spray in pan. Mine need 22 min in oven and once cooled cut very nicely for dessert trays. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I enjoy classic recipes that can be made custom for my family needs."

"Good, and really easy. I used a mix of mini-sized candy bars, and my kids thought they were great. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"I made these using a devils food cake mix. I baked 25 minutes and I did add some whipping cream in with the mix as it was too dry using the ingredients as stated. They taste good, but I find them just a little dry. I think they would be awesome using a brownie mix and putting the candy into them. Still good."

"These were just amazing! I was looking for a different variety of brownie, one that was decadent, yet would really wow the kids. This fit the bill well! I actually sold them at a sale and saved a couple back for my husband and I to enjoy later, and they disappeared too. I would highly recommend them!!"
