With Snickers in the title, you know full well, that these aren't going to be your average brownies. These are some of the best dang brownies on the face of this earth. I introduce to you, Ultimate Fudgy Snickers Brownies!
Swirls of creamy peanut butter and caramel, with a generous sprinkle of sea salt, milk chocolate chips and roasted peanuts adorn the top of the brownies.
Whoa!!! Wait, that's not all Folks! 🙂
There are decadent Snickers candy bar bits loaded inside these home-made fudgy brownies, too! These are some serious, serious, sinfully, chocolatey, and indulgent Snickers Brownies!! I have open arms (and mouth, go figure!) to this "Snickers Brownie Utopia"!
Even if you were just making the brownies by themselves, without all the bells and whistles (Snickers, peanut butter, caramel...ya know, the fancy, schmancy stuff) you would never go back to boxed brownie mixes again. You wouldn’t even want too!
Besides, most likely you probably have everything already in your kitchen to make these and it doesn't take that much extra to whip up scratch brownies versus the boxed version, as I've found out over time. All you're adding is 3 - 4 extra ingredients...big whoop! 🙂 And it is a big whoop, because these brownies rock! Thank you Sweet Anna!
I've always loved Snickers, and if you do too, here's a couple of recipes you might like, Kahlua Cheesecake Snickers Brownies, Outrageous SNICKERS Brownies, No-Bake Snickers Caramel Truffle Chocolate Cheesecake Pie and Snickers Marshmallow Popcorn Munchie Mix!
These would be great for any occasion...it just so happens Memorial weekend is THIS weekend, so here's the recipe! Trust me! Your friends and family will be so happy you baked these! 🙂
Great for football and basketball parties too!
