Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies

Happy Halloween!  Is everyone ready for the Halloween sugar rush? If you end up having leftover Halloween candy or want to raid your children’s stash, pick out all of the Snickers candy bars you can find to make these Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies. This recipe is perfect for using up the leftover or stolen Halloween candy:)

These decadent brownies are a dream for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. The brownies are fudgy, rich, and dotted with Snickers candy bar chunks. Don’t worry, we aren’t done yet. The brownies also have a thick and creamy peanut butter swirl. Brownies, Snickers, and peanut butter all in one dessert, it doesn’t get much better than this folks!

We weren’t planning on taking our little guy out for trick or treating, but I may have to just so I can load up on Snickers bars. I really want to make these Peanut Butter Snickers brownies again. And it would be my job as a mother to eat his candy since he is too young, right? I am just trying to be a good mama:)

So gather up your Snickers bars and get baking! You are in for a trip to brownie heaven. Yesterday, I posted Caleb’s Birth Story on our On the Side page, check it out if you are interested.

Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies

Yield: 24 brownies

Cook Time: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped Snickers candy bars
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined. Stir in Snickers candy bar chunks. Pour batter into prepared pan.

3. Drop dollops of peanut butter over the batter. Using a knife, swirl peanut butter into brownies. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into squares and serve.

    I think it would be fabulous to be a ‘good mother’ and help Caleb with his Halloween candy :) I sent my hubs out tonite to buy Halloween candy but told him what kinds to buy and not buy…in case we have leftovers, after all.

    These brownies look fabulous. Lovely!

    I totally made a variation of these a few weeks ago from Baking Addiction, and they were AMAZING. Now I see these, and I want to cry. They look so delicious! Two batches in a couple weeks seems a little decadent, but hey, I’m worth it!

    These look like the perfect Halloween treat! I didn’t buy any Snickers to give out this year, mostly because I would eat them all. I think I might have to go buy some now though just to make these. Happy Halloween!!

    I think you guys should ABSOLUTELY take Caleb Trick or Treating! And then bake away/nibble on his stash. That IS part of the fun of having kids.

    these brownies look amazing! The ultimate chocolate/peanut butter experience.

    I have no plans for Halloween, so if you wouldn’t mind sending me some of these, I will gladly take them off your hands :)

    These look AMAZING. You can’t beat peanut butter and chocolate as a combo, and I love that you’ve taken these to the next level with even more peanut butter. Delicious.
