Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with cooking spray or shortening. Make brownies as directed on box--except bake 32 minutes. Sprinkle with marshmallows; bake 5 minutes longer or until marshmallows are puffed and golden. Sprinkle with candies.
  2. In small microwavable bowl, microwave chips and shortening uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds; stir until smooth. Drizzle over bars. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. For easier cutting, use plastic knife dipped in hot water. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.

Recipe Tips

  • To easily remove and cut the bars, line the pan with foil before spraying, allowing foil to extend over sides. Just lift out of the pan after cooling.
  • Any color candy-coated chocolate candies can be used
