Did you know that you can make brownies using just one saucepan? It’s true! This is the easiest brownie recipe you will ever make. And it only gets one pan dirty to mix everything together. Can’t beat that! If you add heath bar pieces to make Heath Bar Saucepan Brownies, your friends and family will love you forever.
This super simple brownie recipe takes just a few ingredients. I first started making brownies this way when I was in high school and I have rarely strayed from the saucepan approach ever since. It’s just too easy to make them any other way!
We like to change up the recipe a bit depending on what time of year it is and what I have in my pantry! For this batch, we went with heath bars! Yum. If you don’t have heath bars nearby, you can substitute chocolate chips or chopped chunks of chocolate. Still delicious!
These decadent Heath Bar brownies are great for dessert but they also pair well with coffee for breakfast… 😉 Enjoy!
