Snickers Brownies

Happy New Year! I hope you have all had a great start to 2011. It is my civic duty to warn you that if one of your resolutions was to cut back on sugar or lose weight, this Snicker’s Brownies recipe is probably not the post for you.

As a matter of fact, nothing I have in store for you this week, or really ever is considered “light.” After all, this is a baking blog so don’t expect anything less than loads butter, sugar and chocolate here on My Baking Addiction.

I decided to make these Snickers Brownies after picking up a 75% off bag of holiday candy at Target. There was no real plan in mind; I just couldn’t refuse the deal. The shiny holiday wrapped Snickers stared at me for days from inside their sealed bag.

Since I had already made Snickers Cupcakes and Snickers Cheesecake, I thought, why not make Snickers Brownies? I basically nestled pieces of Snickers into my favorite brownie recipe to create an ooey gooey masterpiece. These brownies are fudgy, rich, thick and decadent, oh and those pieces of nougat…those my friends are irresistible.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as did. Have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by to check out this sweet treat!

Snickers Brownies

Yield: 12 brownies


4 ounces unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped
3/4 cup butter
1 ½ cups white sugar
3 eggs; lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
12 Fun Size Snickers Candy Bars; cut into fourths


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Microwave chocolate and butter or margarine in large bowl at medium (50% power) for 3-4 minutes or until butter is melted.

3. Whisk until chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar. Add in eggs, extract and salt. Gradually add in flour and stir until just combined.

4. Spread ½ the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of Snickers and cover with remaining ½ of brownie batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes; do not over bake.

5. Remove to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

    Amazing! Made then with the PB squared Snickers! For a birthday gift! Wasn’t going to eat any myself after reading the nutrition info on the snickers package, but I could not resist! They are SUPER AMAZING!


  2. These look! I must try them ASAP! Thanks for the great, fattening post!

    is it possible to make these eggless ?

      I have never tried this recipe with an egg substitute, but let me know if you give it a whirl. :)

    Can these be made with a box brownie mix (and still taste as good)?


    • Jamie — January 18, 2012 at 8:11 am

      You can certainly use a box mix although I prefer homemade brownies I still think they would be quite delicious using a mix.

    Hi Jamie I tried the recipe and it turns out to be a bit hard not fudgy and its a bit bitter.. im using hershey’s unsweetened chocolate.. And the crust slightly hard but it is not crackling as i thought it would be :( do you think i overmixed the batter when folding the flour?


    • Jamie — April 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

      That could have been the issue – I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you. I barely mix in my flour, but baking has so many variables, it’s often hard to detect the exact cause. Sorry I am not more of a help.

    I must say that your recipe looks totally awesome and I have printed so I can make these brownies during the holidays. I’m on weight watchers but I am going to enjoy every bit of

    Snickers has to be the best candy bar on Earth and then to put them in the middle of a brownie! OMG! Must try these!

    All of your recipes are making me salivate. I can’t wait to try them out as I am currently doing a recipe book for a project on American dessert! Thank you for all your amazing recipes.

    I just made these today and they are AMAZING. I used regular Snickers as the recipe indicated (my husband got a little overzealous down the Easter candy aisle and I figured if I baked them into something then maybe I wouldn’t just sit and eat the whole bag… now I’m faced with a bigger dilemma!), and this recipe is definitely a keeper. I could see using chocolate covered salted caramels in this as well. I wouldn’t, however, recommend making these if you are going to be alone with them.

      Thank you, Beth! They are dangerous in the best possible way!
