What Younger Kids Can Do:
* Measure ingredients.
* Beat eggs and stir dry ingredients into melted chocolate mixture.
* Scatter candies across brownie batter.
1. In a 3-qt. saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add sugars and cook for3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugars dissolve. Reduce heat to low andadd 1 1/3 cups of the chocolate chips (about 8 oz.), stirring until chocolate is thoroughly melted. Remove pan from heat and let cool for 20 minutes.
2. While chocolate mixture cools, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder and stir with a whisk or fork until blended. Set aside.
3. When chocolate-butter mixture is lukewarm, beat in eggs, one at a time, usinga wooden spoon. Make sure each egg is thoroughly blended into mixture before adding the next egg. Add vanilla extract and mix. Add flour mixture and stir until flouris combined with chocolate mixture.
4. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth out with a spatula. Scatter remaining2/3 cup (4 oz.) chocolate chips and candy-coated chocolates evenly over batter. Bake for 23 to 26 minutes, or until brownies begin to pull away from side of pan and surface is no longer shiny. Place pan on a cooling rack and let cool for 45 minutes before cutting into 24 bars.
