This recipe for Snickers brownies, is a tasty variation of the typical chocolate brownie which I really love. First, the layer of snickers adds gooey caramel and peanuts to the flavours. Second, they stay more moist than plain brownies. Finally, they just look really cool when you cut them into pieces. One of my friends made this recipe, and instead of stirring the salt in, he used coarse sea salt on top. People loved the salty and sweet combination. You can also substitute other chocolate bars for snickers, as long as they melt. For example, I am not sure a Twix would work because the cookie biscuit would stay hard.
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c. plain flour
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 full size Snickers bars, cut into slices
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. First, grease a 9X13 inch pan or line with grease-proof (wax) paper. Then, in a bowl, combine the sugar and margarine and beat until light and fluffy. Next, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well. Spread 1/2 of the batter evenly in the pan and bake for ~10 minutes. Then layer on the sliced Snickers. Finally, top with the rest of the batter and bake a further ~30 minutes.
The centre may still be a bit soft, but the brownies will solidify after cooling. Do not overbake or they will become dry!
