  •  Canola oil for greasing pan
  • 1 pouch (10.25 oz) fudge brownie mix (or 2 cups/500 mL plus 2 tbsp/30 mL from 18-oz or 450 g pkg)
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) water
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil

Directions

  1. Brush the bottom of the Small Rectangular Baker with oil using the Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush.
  2. In a medium Glass Mixing Bowl, combine the brownie mix, water, oil, and egg with the Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Mix well.
  3. Arrange the candy bars in the baker (in two rows of five). Pour batter over candy bars and spread evenly.
