Ingredients You’ll Need
Before we dive into the step-by-step process of making these delectable Snickers brownies, let’s gather all the essential ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:
For the Brownie Base
- 1 cup of unsalted butter
- 2 cups of granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
For the Snickers Layer
- 2 cups of chopped Snickers bars (about 10 fun-size bars)
- 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of heavy cream
For the Caramel Drizzle
- 1 cup of caramel candies
- 2 tablespoons of heavy cream
The Step-by-Step Process
Now that we have all our ingredients ready, let’s proceed to create these indulgent Snickers brownies. Follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Preheat the Oven
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. This ensures that your brownies won’t stick and makes for easy cleanup.
Step 2: Prepare the Brownie Batter
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in 30-second intervals until it’s completely melted. Stir in the granulated sugar until well combined. Then, beat in the eggs one at a time and add the vanilla extract.
Step 3: Mix in Dry Ingredients
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want your brownies to be fudgy.
Step 4: Add Chopped Snickers
Gently fold in one cup of the chopped Snickers bars into the brownie batter. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.
Step 5: Peanut Butter Layer
In a small saucepan, melt the peanut butter and 1/4 cup of heavy cream over low heat, stirring until smooth. Pour this mixture over the brownie batter in the pan and spread it evenly.
Step 6: Bake to Perfection
Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remember, it’s better to slightly underbake than overbake for that gooey texture.
Step 7: Caramel Drizzle
While the brownies are cooling, prepare the caramel drizzle. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramel candies and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring until the caramel is smooth and pourable.
Step 8: Drizzle and Cool
Once the brownies have cooled for about 10 minutes, drizzle the caramel sauce over the top. Sprinkle the remaining cup of chopped Snickers bars on top of the caramel layer. Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting them into squares.
There you have it – your very own batch of Outrageous Snickers Brownies! These delightful treats are guaranteed to be a hit at parties or as a special indulgence for yourself. With a fudgy brownie base, a layer of peanut butter goodness, and a caramel drizzle, these brownies are a flavor explosion in every bite. So go ahead, treat yourself to the outrageous goodness of Snickers brownies.
- Can I use a different chocolate bar instead of Snickers? Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with your favorite chocolate bars for a unique twist on this recipe.
- How do I store Snickers brownies? Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or refrigerate for longer freshness.
- Can I use natural peanut butter in this recipe? While you can use natural peanut butter, the creamy consistency of regular peanut butter works best for the peanut butter layer.
- What can I do with leftover caramel sauce? You can use it as a topping for ice cream, drizzle it over pancakes, or even add it to your coffee for a caramel-flavored treat.
- Can I freeze Snickers brownies? Yes, you can! Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container before freezing for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature when you’re ready to enjoy them again.
- 1 box brownie mix baked in a 9x9 pan and cooled I used Ghirardelli’s brownie mix with eggs, oil and water added in.
- 1 cup marshmallow fluff
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 ½ cups Kraft Premium Caramel bits or caramels unwrapped
- 1 tablespoon milk of choice or heavy cream
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts or salted peanuts or nuts of choice
Candy Bar Chocolate Layer:
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chips I used 1 cup milk chocolate chips & ½ cup dark chocolate chips
- ⅓ cup peanut butter or almond butter
- Prepare brownie batter according to package directions using a 9 x9-inch pan and cool the brownies completely.
- In a medium bowl, combine the marshmallow fluff and the peanut butter with a rubber spatula or hand mixer until well blended.
- *Helpful Hint* Put the fluff nougat mixture into the microwave for 10 -15 seconds to make it easier to stir and spread. Spread the nougat fluff mixture on top of the cooled brownies in an even layer.
- Microwave the caramel in a medium bowl with the milk/cream for 1 minute or so. Whisk, then heat for an additional 30 seconds or until smooth and melted.
- Pour and spread the caramel layer evenly on top of the fluff nougat layer.
- Immediately sprinkle the peanuts on top of the caramel and barely press them into the caramel.
Candy Bar Chocolate Layer
- Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave and stir every 30 seconds until smooth and melted and whisk until well incorporated.
- Pour chocolate layer over nougat layer and let brownies layers set before cutting them.
