Recipe Tips

Line the baking pan with parchment or foil, so it’s easy to lift the brownies out. 

Be careful not to overbake because you want a nice fudgy brownie.

Keeping them chilled in the refrigerator until it’s time to cut them up will make slicing them up easier.

Recipe Variations

Instead of Milky Way bars, you could use Milky Way bites.

Use other candy bars to make Snicker brownies or 3 Musketeer brownies.

For more yumminess, drizzle the finished brownies with caramel sauce. 

Add some flaky sea salt to your caramel sauce mixture, and voila – salted caramel brownies!
