Kit Kat Brownies- Fudgy brownies with the added bonus of Kit Kat candy bars! Plus, it’s frosted with a super thick pile of chocolate buttercream frosting. Crazy good stuff.
- 1 box, chocolate cake mix
- Mini Kit Kat candy bars
- Powdered sugar
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
Chocolate Cake Mix: Any brand/variety of chocolate will work. Stick with a 15-18 oz box size and you are good to go.
Kit Kat Candy Bars: I used a mini version of the bars, but, any size will work. You will simply have to adjust the amount of bars you need.
Butter ( for the Brownies): If desired, you can replace the melted butter in the brownies with a neutral tasting oil.
- Your brownie batter will be thick! So, if it’s thick, that is OK. 👍
- Be sure to let the brownie cool completely before frosting. You do not want a melty mess of Kit Kat bars…it’s not pretty.
Storage: Keep any leftover brownies or frosting in the refrigerator.
