🥘 Ingredients Needed
- brownie mix - use your favorite store-bought brownie mix to make these Snickers brownies just how you like them.
- butter - the box will likely call for vegetable oil, but melted butter gives your brownies a rich and buttery flavor and makes them so moist!
- milk - instead of water, use milk to add more fat and flavor.
- eggs - help bind the brownies together.
- Snickers bars - provide sweet chocolate flavor, as well as some salty nuttiness and rich caramel.
- Add brownie mix to a bowl with eggs, melted butter, and milk.
- Stir until well combined.
- Pour about half of the brownie batter into a greased 11x8 pan.
- Press Snickers bars lightly into the batter in an even pattern.
- Cover with the rest of the batter and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
If you want brownies on the fudgier side, you'll need a higher ratio of fat to flour. This means you'll want to add more butter, oil, or chocolate. For cakey brownies, add less fat or more flour. An extra egg may also lead to a texture that's drier and more like cake.
If you're worried about over-mixing, it may help to beat your eggs slightly before adding them to the batter. Added whole, the eggs will take more mixing to incorporate into the other ingredients, but as long as you're careful there's no need to take the extra step to beat them first.
No, there's no real need to cover the top with foil while you bake your Snickers bar brownies.
If you know you're going to store the brownies for a few days after baking, it can be helpful to wrap them individually to ensure they don't dry out or get hard. If they're hard, you can also try popping them in the microwave to see if they'll soften up.
💭 Expert Tips and Tricks
- A 9x9 or 13x9 pan can be used if you don't have an 11x8, though your brownies will be thicker or thinner, respectively. Just be sure to adjust the baking time to around 23 minutes for the 13x9 or 36 minutes for the 9x9.
- Your Snickers bar brownies are done when you stick a toothpick into the brownies and it comes out clean. Just be sure to avoid the candy bars when you do this!
📌 These Snickers fudge brownies are the perfect way to make any meal special! Serve them for holidays and celebrations, bring them out at parties, or make any family dinner memorable with these decadent treats!
📖 Substitutions and Variations
- This recipe works great with just about any kind of candy bar, so feel free to experiment and try all of your favorites!
- Add some instant coffee to really deepen the chocolate flavor.
- Throw in a pinch of salt for some flavor contrast.
- Add a dash of vanilla extract to create an even more interesting flavor profile.
🥫 Storage and Reheating
Store leftover brownies at room temperature. You can cover them with plastic wrap or cut them into individual pieces and wrap them, which may help them stay fresher for longer.
If they go a bit stale or hard, try popping them in the microwave for a couple of seconds to warm them and soften them up.
