Snickers Brownies

All my favorite boys were in town this weekend so I wanted to make them something they would all love.  I know they all like brownies so I figured this would be a good recipe.   I actually used two different recipes from My Baking Addiction.  I used her recipe for Amazing Brownies for the brownie part, and then her idea for the Snickers part.  I didn't have all the ingredients for the Snickers Brownie recipe so I had to find another.  These were super easy to make and a huge hit with everyone.   I loved the brownie recipe alone, but with the added nuts and caramel, they were delicious.  I will be making these again soon!




Snickers Brownies - Adapted from My Baking Addiction
Yield:16 or 24 depending on how you cut it
Ingredients:
2/3 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
6 Ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips
10 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
3 Eggs
3 Regular Size Snickers Bars


Directions:
  1. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl; set aside. Spray an 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Fit a sheet of foil in pan and up two sides, so you can use it as a handle to pull cooked brownies from pan (I used parchment paper). Spray sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Melt chocolates and butter in a medium bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from heat; whisk in sugar and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating each one before adding the next. Continue to whisk until mixture is completely smooth and glossy.
  3. Add dry ingredients, whisk until just incorporated.
  4. Cut up the Snickers bars into thin slices.
  5. Pour 1/2 the batter into prepared pan; place the snickers to cover the whole pan.  Pour the rest of the batter on top.  Bake until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in center comes out with wet crumbs, 35-40 minutes.
  6. Cool brownies in pan on a wire rack for five minutes. Use handles to pull brownies from pan. Completely cool brownies on rack. Cut into squares and serve. Whole brownie cake can be wrapped in plastic wrap, then foil, and refrigerated for up to five days.
  7. Enjoy!!
