water, vegetable oil, and eggs, as called for on brownie mix box
1 8 oz. pkg Snickers bites candy
2 1/4 C semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
2 Tbsp shortening
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
Line a 9x13 baking dish with foil, allowing it to extend 2 inches over edges of pan.
Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix brownie mix, water, oil, and eggs, until well blended.
Spread in pan.
Bake 24 to 26 minutes, or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out clean. Do not overbake.
Cool completely. Remove brownies from pan. Remove foil from brownie.
Trim 1/8 inch off edges of brownie (the outer crispy part). Cut brownie into 35 squares (7 rows of 5).
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place a brownie square in your hand and press to flatten.
Place a Snickers in center of brownie. Wrap brownie around Snickers, forming into a ball.
