TWIX Bites Brownies1

On Memorial Day weekend and we decided to have a couple of our good friends and their kids over for a cookout.  I knew that we were having the basic hot dogs, hamburgers, and macaroni salad.  I was trying to figure out a dessert for the kids, then I received a great opportunity from #CollectiveBias to try the new TWIX Bites Snack on the go.  I thought the chocolate, caramel, and cookie would make a great addition to the brownie dessert that I was going to make.   I headed to Walmart to look for the TWIX Bites and found them easily at the front of the store and for a great price too.

The brownie recipe I decided to use is my grandma’s recipe, it has always been one of my favorites.
