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.

    thankfully we do NOT have any leftover candy.
    last year we had a ton and I made a “everyone in the pool” bundt cake.
    I would not want to make these as they would be eaten in a day–all of it! LOL

    If only the trick or treaters hadn’t taken all of our candy, I cannot believe how many people we had last night. May have to buy some snickers just for this recipe!

    Yummmmm! You have the magic touch when it comes to brownies, Maria! I looooooooove your twix brownies, and even though I’m not a huge fan of peanut butter and chocolate (I know, weird), I bet these are amazing. And I know the hubster would love them; Snickers are his very fave!

    These are awesome brownies! Instead of a peanut butter swirl I used caramel because my husband isn’t a big peanut butter fan. Delicious. I think this will be my new go to brownie recipe. Thanks!
