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.
