1 lb (4 sticks) unsalted butter
1 lb semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped semi-sweet chocolate
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 Tbs instant espresso powder
7 large eggs
2 Tbs pure vanilla extract
2¼ cups granulated sugar
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
12 ounces mini Milky Way Bars (chopped)
1 full-size Milky Way Bar sliced thinly
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour 12×18x1-inch pan. Line with foil or parchment that hangs over the sides for ease in getting them out (butter the foil/parchment).
2. In a heatproof, medium-bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, heat butter, and chocolates until melted and smooth; cool slightly.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, espresso powder, vanilla and sugar. Stir the egg mixture into the slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Cool to room temperature.
4. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to batter. Stir chopped mini Milky Way bars into chocolate mixture. Then pour into prepared baking pan and smooth top with a rubber spatula. Place slices of the full-size Milky Way Bar onto the top of the brownie batter.
5. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean with a few crumbs attached; do not over bake! Let cool completely, then cover tightly and chill overnight. Chilled brownies are easier to cut.
Yield: At least a couple of dozen, depending on how large you cut your brownies.
Cooking Tips*These taste better the second day.**If it’s a warm day inside your house, you might consider chilling the Milky Way bars before you try to cut them.

I have made these before and they are AWESOME! I tried them with Baby Ruths and that's also pretty tasty, as well as Butterfingers. But, my favorite is definitely Milky Way (cuz that's my favorite bar too). Have you made Snickers Salad?
