Mounds Brownies

These Mounds Brownies taste just like the candy bar. Start with a boxed brownie mix and end with a can of frosting, but the middle is totally homemade.

Somebody messed up. Really. What kind of marketing team sits back and takes a look at a Mounds Bar and an Almond Joy and calls the one with a mound on top of it Almond Joy? THERE’S A MOUND ON TOP OF THE ALMOND JOY!!!

I know- you are thinking I should really calm down about this. I’m not really that jazzed up about it but to tell the truth these are the things I sat around and thought about as a child. Even now as an adult I get the two candies confused. Now you know me a little better. Isn’t that nice?

I am also sharing this recipe over at Dixie Chik Cooks. I hope you’ll stop by and tell her hello too! I actually made this after being inspired from some Halloween candy lying around. We want you to fess up- do you have any leftover Halloween candy?

Random confession: I had to throw out Easter Candy the week before Halloween.
