Snickers Brownie Bites

Let’s talk “honest” people.

Honesty is, by far, one of the most important qualities in a person if not the most important. People already know this. They already want this. It shouldn’t really need to be established since it’s kind of a given, you know? No one goes around saying “I look for shady crook activity in a man–someone who I cannot trust with a paperclip, much less my life.” It’s just not happening, people.

Anyway, I was always peeved by people who boasted they were “totally honest” and would “soooo tell you if you had like, food in your teeth.”

Those people are LIARS. Filthy liars.

Because honest people do tell you if you have food in your teeth. “Totally honest” people do not. In fact, those are the same people who go completely on about their lives when you flash them in a Safeway. Yes, this happened.

I was picking up some extra baking accessories at Safeway the other day on my day off, so naturally, I was dressed up in a cute mint-colored tank top that buttons down the front. As I gleefully strolled through the aisles stocking up on brownie mix and pecans (that recipe later this week), I was blissfully unaware that my adorable shirt had turned into an X-rated one and I was flashing the store.

Apparently, unbeknownst to me, three of the middle shirt buttons had unbuttoned in my quest for baking supplies and my polka-dotted bra and cleavage were, in fact, exposed. And I went through the checkstand with the cashier just smiling awkwardly at me, walked past an older man who winked at me, and went to the Starbucks inside the grocery store to grab a chai latte and had the barista avert her eyes awkwardly. I chalked it up to the fact I was makeup-less and therefore, probably look like a goblin. But no. My girls were out.

It wasn’t until I got to my car (and therefore, gave the parking lot a lovely show), that I looked down to put my belt on and saw my bra. I audibly gasped and cursed those people in the store who all looked at me and didn’t bother to say anything when clearly, I was unaware that I was being an exhibitionist.

So I came home and stuffed my face with Snickers Brownie Bites. It’s the only thing I could do to make me forget about my days as a grocery store flasher.

These brownie bites are a force to be reckoned with. A Snickers-lover’s dream, they’re fudgy brownie squares topped with a peanut butter nougat, a thin veil of buttery caramel, salty chunks of peanuts and topped with a smooth milk chocolate coating. They’re divine.

Honest.

Snickers Brownie Bites

1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients on back of box
1 jar marshmallow fluff
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 pkg Kraft caramels, unwrapped
1 Tbsp heavy cream
1 & 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 pkg chocolate Candiquik or milk chocolate almond bark

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13×9″ baking pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Prepare your brownie mix according to package directions and pour into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean per the directions on the package. Cool the brownies completely.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the marshmallow fluff + the smooth peanut butter with a rubber spatula or hand mixer until blended. Spread the fluff mixture on top of the cooled brownies in an even layer.
3. Microwave the unwrapped caramels in a medium bowl with a splash of heavy cream for 1 minute. Stir, then heat for an additional 30 seconds or until melted and smooth. Spread the caramel layer on top of the fluff nougat layer evenly. Immediately sprinkle on the peanuts and press them gently into the caramel. Pop the brownies in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set.
4. Melt the Candiquik according to package directions until smooth. Using a sharp knife sprayed with cooking spray, cut the brownies into 1″-2″ sized squares. Dip the tops of the squares in the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet to set. Repeat until all the bites have been coated.
5. Store the bites airtight, at room temperature, up to 2 days.

So many of you know Snickers aren’t typically my candy bar of choice. I don’t know why, but I’ve never really cared for them too much. However, these brownie bites didn’t last a minute on my plate. I gobbled ‘em up as if it were my job. They’re so gooey and delicious, like a soft and chewy Snickers bar. I love them, and if you love Snickers, you will too!

Enjoy! Happy Tuesday!

xo, Hayley

  1. Oh my! I think it’s best that you discovered your “openness” later in the day, it would’ve been worse if you discovered what was going on while shopping! Then you’d be staring down each person wondering what they saw! Snickers are my second favorite candy bar. I eat it in layers, savoring the caramel. However, I’d probably in these whole, as in the whole pan!

  2. Umm… Maybe they thought you were intentionally flashing the store? I’ve no idea. Hope these brownie bites made you feel better! They make me feel great just looking at them!

  3. I need these in my life!

  4. Chandra@The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen says:

    How do you do it?! I am in love with all your amazing treats!!!

  5. Oh man, why don’t people just tell you!! That’s awful. I’m sorry. At least these look awesome!

  6. Don’t worry, Hayley. If you flash your girls in Austin, I’ll tell you. :-) And Snickers ARE one of my candy bars of choice, and in brownies? So totally awesome.

  7. HAHAHA! you crack me up with your girls showing. i went around for 6 hours with my fly undone just the other day until some lady at target told me-she said i must’ve forgotten the last time i went to the bathroom and i realized i hadn’t gone since i left he house 6 hrs ago. good thing i was wearing underwear! HAHA i think i need these brownies to forget about that day. honestly!

    • OMG! I lol’d Lisa! Too funny. At least that Target lady told you! When I told my boyfriend my story he said “well maybe they thought it was a look.” A LOOK? Like I’d purposely walk around with every button buttoned except three, exposing my girls? I don’t think so lol!

  8. This is the best idea ever! I am dying to taste the flavor of the peanut butter/fluff “nougat”! What a creative idea and so much easier than making actual nougat!

  9. You probably made that old man’s day, think of it like that and seriously stop with all these amazing recipes this week! My fat pants can only hold a certain size.

  10. I could use a couple of these right now! My family loves Snickers. . .they’d devour these in no time!

  11. Oh man, I’m in full on brownie craving mode now ;-) I want!!!

  12. Hayley, they probably thought you were doing it on purpose,polka-dot bra and all.I mean, gals DO walk around like that.(I’m glad that you don’t…intentionally, anyway!) If it had been a plain white one, somebody might have said something to you. Feel better?

    • Tonette, yes, I suppose I feel better about it now, hehe. At least it was a cute bra! Lol.

      • Vee Sluys says:

        Haha, I was going to say, ‘at least you were wearing a cute bra!’. I clicked on a friend’s link to get this amazing looking snickers recipe and read the whole post!
        We all flash people accidentally sometimes anyways, I’m sure. ;)

  13. Oh, gosh. I would totally have said something. Even if I didn’t know you! And these brownies look goooood. I have a think for Snickers. :)

  14. I would absolutely tell you (I actually stopped a woman at the theater who had her dress tucked in her underwear) at least you didn’t flash everyone your entire back end:)
    these brownies need to happen at my house – I LOVE snickers

  15. Oh man. I have too many stories like this of my own. I don’t know if it’s better or worse for someone to point out the offense..,soooo embarrassing.
    I actually love snickers and I am obsessed with brownies so,nyeah, I need these. Might have to make them during nap time today :)

  16. the fluff! the peanut butter! the fudgy brownies! the caramel! the nuts! the little bite-sizeness! DID YOU MAKE THESE FOR ME???????? I am obsessed with snickers and have never seen anything like these! I could use about 5 of these right now. my full time job blows!

  17. Pure awesomeness. I think these just cured my headache.

  18. What a day. I’m sorry Hayley! But I’m sure these snicker brownies helped. These look amazing. I’m wishing I could grab one through my computer screen right this second! I love the creativity of using a brownie and adding the snicker layers. Beautiful to look at and I’m sure they are just as wonderful to eat!

  19. 2dys? Sheez, any cheats?

  20. Nougat did not stick to brownie and “pressed in” peanuts did not stick to caramel. Inverted them to dip in chocolate, peanuts dropped off first, and was left holding the brownie with the remaining layers still in the chocolate. :(

  21. Do you have to dip it in the chocolate???? Or could you just pour the chocolate over the brownies????

  22. Okay, can I just tell you that I think I love you? These look amazing. AMAZING! And I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to scroll down and see how very easy they appear to be. Boxed brownie mix? Be still my heart- you are on the same wavelength as me. I can’t wait to make these. And I’m sorry to hear about your stint as a flasher; maybe some of those people thought that was the look you were going for? Unless it wasn’t just the top three buttons, and you could totally tell it was an accident; then, FOR SHAME, PEOPLE!

  23. what size jar is the marshmallow please?

  24. Reblogged this on Grand Outlet and commented:
    This looks so good!

  25. I made these for our Super Bowl party last night and OH MY!!! These were incredible! Needless to say I scored a touchdown!!! Big hit!

  26. What kind of heavy cream do you use

  27. Where can you find it?

    • Hi Emily! I’m pretty sure every grocery store carries it in the dairy case. Just look for it near the milk and half-and-half; like I said, either “heavy cream” or “heavy whipping cream” will get the job done just fine :)

  28. Hayley I missed these and just pinned them because they look so good! I love Snickers and normally I dont eat too many nuts in baked goods, but would gladly make an exception! Some of your best photography, too! Beautiful!

  29. joyfromyesterfood says:

    These are obscene and fabulous! :D Love!

  30. Cathi Bender says:

    Definitely making these for a girls only Oscars party this weekend! But thinking of making individual bites in a mini muffin pan. Think that would work? Can’t wait to taste!

    • Hi Cathi! Yeah, that should work! Just use a piping bag or a small teaspoon to add the nougat/caramel/all that jazz. And of course, bake the mini brownies for a bit shorter than you would for a pan :) great idea making them into bitty bites!

      • Cathi Bender says:

        They turned out great! I baked them for 20 minutes. The nougat was spread with a knife. I melted the caramel and chocolate in a double boiler so they would stay melted since it took longer topping the brownies individually. Then sprinkled a little sea salt on top. Thanks for the recipe – so good!

  31. Approximately how many brownie bites are made using the quantities of this recipie?

  32. Question- what exactly is marshmallow fluff? Does the jar say exactly that? The only marshmallow product that I’ve ever been able to find is Marshmallow Cream… any idea if this is the same product?

  33. hey i have a question – if chocolate Candiquik or milk chocolate almond bark is not available ten is it possible to use any chocolate ?

    • You can use Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, which are typically found in the baking aisle. It’s a chocolate specifically made for melting so it won’t scorch as fast as say, chocolate chips. However, if in a pinch, just use chocolate chips with a splash of oil and heat in 30 second increments until smooth and melted.

  34. Well- They taste amazing!!! but they are a smidge (ok, an ENORMOUS smidge :-)) messy!!!! Make sure you’ve got the time to devout to unwrapping the caramels and for all the melting/spreading/cutting/dipping- then take time to enjoy a bite with a big cup-o-milk!! Thanks for the recipe!

  35. Is your caramel tough and chewy? I used regular milk instead of heavy cream. Guess that might of made the difference.

  36. passthecocoa says:

    Snickers and brownies plus chocolate coating? Sounds delicious!

  37. I saw this recipe posted on FB and gave it a go. OMG!!! These were the best brownies I have ever eaten. I used evaporated milk instead of cream in the caramels, and chocolate frosting melted over the top instead of chocolate bark (I had it on hand so I saved a trip to the store), but the textures were wonderful. Honestly I think I don’t want to buy a tiny $1.50 snickers bar when I can make a 9×13 pan of these for $6.00. I am sure after parading the “ladies” around, these had to have made your day a little better. Awesome recipe.

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Nicki, SO happy to hear you enjoyed them so much! Evap milk is genius for those caramels.. I bet that made them taste irresistible!

  38. I’m making three trays for a large party! Could I pour melted chocolate on top and slice right before I put on trays?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hey Emily! I’m sure you could! Just keep them at room temperature after you pour on the chocolate so the chocolate doesn’t get too hard. When the chocolate is softer, it cuts cleaner. Happy Partying!! :)

  39. Oh my goodness! People should’ve told you! So lame of them not to. At least you had these to make you feel a little better. :)

  40. Oh my gosh these turned out just perfectly! I was really nervous that they would fall apart on me but I followed the directions exactly and really made sure to press the peanuts in ASAP once I spread on the caramel. Quite messy dealing with the marshmallow fluff and PB but absolutely hands down worth the work. Side note: I made these to help raise donations for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and they brought in more money than anything I’ve baked to date. Thank you so much for the recipe. These little bites of Heaven made a lot of people happy and even helped in a good cause. You rock!

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Sarah, SO HAPPY to hear these were a top-seller at the Breast Cancer fundraiser! That’s so awesome of you to spend the time baking them up and selling them for such a great cause :) yes, totally messy but glad you thought they were worth it — so do I! Thanks again girlie. xo.

  41. hey..looks amazing..but what if kraft caramels are not available?any other substitute?can i use cadbury dairy milk for the melting chocolate step?thnx

  42. Amazing! I love everything about these treats!

  43. Chocolate crazy says:

    This story made my awful crabby day not so bad! Thanks for making me laugh and I think I will make these for my work Christmas party! Yummy!

  44. Kept seeing your picture all over Pinterest tonight and was getting really annoyed because looks like it has been taken from Yummliest and pinned a ton with no links back to you and I wanted to make sure that you got credit and traffic back to your site for your pin! So I pinned it to a few of my bigger group boards to send some bloggy love back your way :)

    By the way…. this recipe and your photo’s look DELICIOUS!

    Shauna @ The Best Blog Recipes

  45. Snickers are my FAVE candy bar, but you lost me at peanut butter. Nasty stuff!!
    Suggestions on NOT using PB?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hey Tanya! No problemo — I am weird with it and only like it when I want to like it, haha :) you could substitute Nutella for a super chocolate-y caramel version, or even the Biscoff cookie spread which would give it a slightly spicy gingerbread-y flavor!

  46. I’m sorry to hear about your flashing incident, but I have to admit…it was very funny the way you tell it, Lol!
    The brownie bites look AMAZING! I am going to have to try them.
    The same thing has happened to me. I have a black button front top that I wear and ALWAYS, those darned center buttons come undone and expose my girls to the world! So embarrassing! Since we’re having cooler weather here in Florida, I tie a long enough scarf around my neck that covers the entire center front of that shirt so in case it happens no one can see my bosom buddies.
