Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ triple chunk Premium brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
2/3
cup salted dry roasted cashews, chopped
2
candy bars (1.76 oz each) dark chocolate-covered nougat and caramel candy, each cut lengthwise in half, then chopped (about 2/3 cup)
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Line bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging on 2 opposite sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  • 2 In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, oil, water and eggs until well blended. Stir in 1/3 cup of the chopped cashews and 1/3 cup of the chopped candy bars. Spread evenly in pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/3 cup cashews and 1/3 cup candy bars evenly over batter.
  • 3 Bake 35 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Remove brownies from pan, using foil to lift. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

For cutting ease, once the brownies have cooled, use the overhang of foil to lift the uncut brownies out of the pan and onto a cutting board.

If you’re serving an assortment of desserts, cut these decadent brownies into smaller bite-size treats. Cut into 7 rows by 7 rows.
