Snickers Brownies from the stir and recipe snobs

Have you ever found yourself at dessert time wondering if you should have some candy or a brownie? Well, fear not because now you can have both with these incredibly delicious Snickers brownies.

From Recipe Snobs, they're part candy bar, part brownie, and all sorts of delicious. Just look at that picture. The bottom layer is a brownie (easy to do with a mix!), then there's a creamy/salty layer, which is topped with ooey gooey caramel. The whole thing is covered with a fudgy layer, and the combination is out of this world. Are you drooling yet?

Snickers Brownies

Brownie Layer:

1 box fudge brownie mix (make sure it's a box that will make 9 x 13 in. brownies)

Ingredients called for on box

1/4 cup hot fudge topping

Nougat Layer:

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup evaporated milk

2 (7-ounce) jars marshmallow creme

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 1/2 cups salted peanuts, roughly chopped

1 teaspoon vanilla

Caramel Layer:

1 (17-ounce) jar of caramel topping, preferably Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel

Candy Bar Topping:

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

1/4 cup peanut butter

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions for a 9x13-inch pan, adding 1/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, unheated and straight from the jar to the batter. (Make sure to follow the high altitude directions if you live at high altitude.) Cool completely.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and milk, stirring until dissolved. Bring to a boil. Add in the marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Turn off heat and fold in peanuts. Pour evenly over cooled brownies. Use a spatula to help spread the mixture. Cool. (Stick brownies in the freezer for about 15 minutes to speed up the process.)

Place caramel, with the lid off, into the microwave and heat for two 30-second intervals, letting caramel rest for a few seconds between. Pour over nougat layer. Make sure to pour it evenly, covering as much of the nougat as possible. Spread with a spatula to cover any bare spots. Let cool. (Again, you can stick in the freezer for about 15 minutes.)

Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, then heat for another 30 seconds. Repeat until smooth. Pour over caramel, drizzling over as much of the surface as possible. Spread evenly over surface and place in fridge until chocolate is set. After chocolate has set, cut into squares and serve.

You should take the caramel topping out of the jar because the jar will get too hot to hold. I make these type of desserts and you do not have to do all the cooling. These ingredients set/cool very quickly. Also, you can usually find crushed/chopped peanuts on the baking isle.

All boxes of brownie mix makes a 9/13 pan. If you want thicker brownies, use an 8x8 pan. All boxies of brownie mix unless you use a gourmet/specality brownie product ... Also, some brownie mixes come with a pkt of chocolate syrup so do not add more.

A 9x13 pan of brownies bakes 15 to 17 min because they are thinner.

I can't wait for a Snowday to make these!
