1 box brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on the box)
1 cup mini pretzels, coarsely crushed
1 cup assorted candy bars, chopped (such as Snickers, Milky Way, or Twix)
Preheat your oven according to the brownie mix package instructions.
Prepare the brownie mix according to the directions on the package. Use the recommended ingredients, such as eggs, oil, and water.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
Pour the prepared brownie batter into the baking pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
Sprinkle the coarsely crushed mini pretzels evenly over the brownie batter. Press them gently into the batter to help them adhere.
Scatter the chopped candy bar pieces over the pretzel layer, distributing them evenly across the pan.
Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake according to the brownie mix package instructions or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (avoid hitting a candy piece).
Once baked, remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
Once cooled, carefully lift the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper or cut them into squares directly in the pan.
Serve these Candy Bar Pretzel Brownies as a delectable dessert that combines the sweetness of candy bars with the satisfying crunch of pretzels, all enveloped in the rich, fudgy goodness of brownies.
