Hershey’s Nugget and Almond Brownies

February 14, 2013Teresa

Attention, chocolate lovers Hershey’s Nugget and Almond Brownies are sensational! Beware, this post may cause chocolate addiction and sugar overload! For those of you who love brownies and can’t get enough of them no matter what combinations of candies and goodies are added to them, you may go crazy over these marvelous dessert bars.

I still have bags of candy leftover from Halloween and Christmas baking so I was trying to come up with a recipe to use up some Hershey’s Nuggets Milk Chocolate Candies with Almonds. I decided to take one of my recipes from an old friend, Mimi Pownall, for Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies and tweak it by adding chopped Hershey’s Nuggets and baking it like a brownie.

Wow, did this turn out amazing! Chocolate filled the air as I was baking and cutting these delicious brownies. While I used 4 cups of chopped Hershey’s Nuggets and Almonds in this recipe, three cups would be completely adequate, too….unless, of course, you just really love chocolate and want your chocolate fix.

I opted to use 4 cups because I was trying to use up the candy. 65 of these mini candies made about 4 cups crushed chopped nuggets for the recipe. If you only want to use three cups of crushed candies about 48 Hershey’s nuggets will do.

The cookie recipe itself really has a melt-in-your-mouth-type taste where the cookie just dissolves in your mouth. Adding Hershey’s nugget candy bars with all those almonds to the cookie dough along with some additional almond flavoring just makes this recipe all that much richer, more decadent, more unbelievably spectacular.

If you love the flavor of Hershey’s Nuggets, almonds, and sugar cookies then mix them all together and this is what you get with this fantastic brownie. When I said decadent I wasn’t kidding. These brownies are sinfully rich. You will probably have to cut them up in small pieces because they are so very rich and sweet.

When I initially posted this recipe in February 2013, I was still using an iPhone camera. My pictures were not crisp or clear so they failed to show the beauty of these bars. I recently remade this recipe (August 2016) so I retook the pictures as well. I was much happier with the result this time. I think you will be too.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens cookies. Add 2 cups chopped Hershey’s nuggets and almonds. Stir to combine.

      LOL! I’ve been baking with my 3-year-old granddaughter today. We made luscious sugar cookies with icing – lots of Valentine’s decorations. They were so adorable. Yes, I took pictures and can’t wait to post them! Uh, move that belt notch over!

      Just put it down for one of those you make after Easter! But make it for a party or something where you don’t have to eat all of them. They are probably 1,000 calories/piece!
