Snickers Brownie Bites

Snickers Brownie Bites
Snickers are my favorite candy bar, but Snickers Squared is a close contender because it’s everything you love about a Snickers plus peanut butter!

So what’s better than a Snickers? These homemade Snickers Brownie Bites, hands down – it’s a good (and bad thing) that this recipe makes a 9×13 inch pan.

Snickers Brownie Bites
This recipe reminds me of another recipe I recently posted, Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies. Maybe it’s because chocolate and peanut butter are heavenly when paired together.

Snickers Brownie Bites
This is a 3 step dessert.
1. Bake brownie layer
2. Add marshmallow fluff peanut butter layer
3. Add caramel and peanut layer

These snickers brownie bites aren’t really time intensive in terms of the “active time”, but you do need to let each layer cool before adding the next, so that takes some time.

With Halloween right around the corner, this would be a fun dish to share. Or perhaps you could boycott buying candy and make these instead :-)

Speaking of Halloween, Ryan and I got into the halloween spirit this past weekend.

Snickers Brownie Bites

Snickers Brownie Bites

Yield: One 9x13 inch pan

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients on back of box
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 package Kraft caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 & 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts

Instructions

    Brownie Layer
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  3. Prepare your brownie mix according to package directions and pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean per the directions on the package. Cool the brownies completely. (I put them in the fridge for 1 hour)
  5. Marshmallow Fluff Peanut Butter Layer
  6. In a medium bowl, combine the marshmallow fluff and the smooth peanut butter until blended. Spread the fluff peanut butter mixture on top of the cooled brownies in an even layer.
  7. Let this firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes, covered.
  8. Caramel Peanut Layer
  9. Microwave the unwrapped caramels in a medium bowl with a splash of heavy cream for 1 minute. Stir, then heat for an additional 30 seconds or until melted and smooth.
  10. Spread the caramel layer on top of the marshmallow fluff PB layer evenly. Immediately sprinkle on the peanuts and press them gently into the caramel.
  11. Put the bars in the fridge, covered, for about 30 minutes to set.
  12. Cut and devour!

    Oh these look perfect for dessert. I can’t find kraft caramels over here though. May try to substitute them with some other caramel and hope it works!

    • The First Year Blog — October 30, 2013 at 7:29 am

      Where do you live? Another caramel similar to kraft caramels would work – so something that is made to be baked with and melted. :-)
