Chewy, fudge-like brownies with a Milky Way surprise inside. This fudgy brownie recipe is filled with Milky Way bites and a caramel topping.

Milky Way Brownies There are so many wonderful things about Fall. The weather, the beautiful colors, football, and of course baking season. I don’t have a favorite football team nor have I ever been tailgating but I know that if I ever do brownies will be part of the experience. Brownies are perfect for tailgating because they’re easy to travel with and can be sliced to accommodate a large group. Lately I’ve been finding my husband and oldest son hanging out on the couch on Sunday afternoons watching football. It’s fun seeing them bond over something that is perfect for them. The little guy is usually napping, so the little miss and I go do our own thing..it’s just the two guys, watching the game! My oldest is at an age where he’s expressing interest in playing next year, so he’s learning as much as he can from this.

While they watched the games on Sunday I made Milky Way Brownies that are filled with Milky Way unwrapped bites. These “bites” get me in trouble, especially the Snickers bites! It’s so hard to stop eating them, but I’m not complaining! I picked up a bag of Milky Way and Snickers bites at Walmart and to avoid eating the whole bag I used them to bake with. Because everyone loves a little candy in their baked goods, right? The answer is yes, treats are ten times better with a hidden Milky Way or Snickers inside. Speaking of Snickers bites I have a fun treat to share with you next week…trust me you’ll need this one!

    Hello, I love this Idea. Milky ways are one of my favorite candy because my nana use to get them for me when I was a little girl, so they always remind me of her. It’s so delicious looking, glad I stopped by from link party palooza!
