4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 1.55-ounce plain chocolate candy bars, coarsely chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside 1/4 cup of this mixture.

Add remaining dry ingredients to egg mixture and blend well. Toss Snickers pieces with reserved 1/4 cup flour mixture, then stir them into batter. Transfer to a greased 13x9x2-inch pan. Sprinkle with plain chocolate candy bar pieces and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Cool on wire rack; chill before cutting.
