Kinda like when MacGyver uses a paper clip and a tampon to build a dune buggy to save the drowning sea otters and it totally works and everyone's like Way to go MacGyver! You're so rad! And sea otters are the cutest things EVER!
No? Well, anyway... I found myself staring at a can of sweetened condensed milk, a bag of chocolate chips, some Snickers that I forgot to send with Brutus to his school party and a brownie mix and I thought... meh, why not?
Y'all. These were SO easy and wicked good. So, the next time you want to totally rock it out MacGyver style, go for these.
1 family-size box brownie mix (18-oz)
Eggs, oil & water for the brownies
2 9-oz. bags snack-size Snickers
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 12-0z. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pinch of salt
Line a 13x9 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray generously with cooking spray. Bake the brownies in prepared pan according to package directions for a 13x9 pan. Remove brownies from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Chop Snickers and sprinkle evenly on top of brownies.
Make the fudge by melting sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and salt over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Spread fudge evenly over snickers (to spread mine evenly, I covered it with a sheet of waxed paper and pressed it with my hands).
Refrigerate until firm then remove brownies from pan by lifting up aluminum foil lining. Cut to size then serve and store at room temperature.
