Salted Caramel Snickers Brownies

A rich and indulgent brownie paired with the famous chocolate bar- Snickers


I first made these brownies for a family holiday as they are easy to transport, along with other brownies and lots and lots of cookies. And they went down a right treat, so I thought I’d share the recipe on here.


This is a super-rich and indulgent treat which is perfect when served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. You could even add some salted caramel sauce, chocolate chips and chopped peanuts.


By chilling the Brownie, you give it a nice firm fudgy texture, if you prefer your brownies a little bit gooier skip this step out. To keep the shape and colour of the snickers follow the recipe, covering with the tin foil stops it from discolouring and losing it’s shape too much. However, to make this process a little easier and quick just throw in the chopped snickers with the nuts and bake for 45 minutes.
