Ingredients

Brownies

Caramel Layer

  • 2 + 1/2 cups caramel bits
  • 2 T . heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts chopped

Milk Chocolate Ganache

Instructions

Brownies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and then spray the parchment with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add in the butter and milk chocolate chips. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir with a spatula. Microwave 30 seconds and stir again. The chocolate should be melted and completely smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add in the granulated and brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Using a hand mixer, mix for 2 minutes until the mixture turns pale and becomes thick, light, and fluffy.
  • Add in the cocoa powder and flour and mix on low until almost incorporated. Turn up to medium and beat for about 30 seconds.
  • Pour and spread evenly in the baking pan. Place 8 SNICKERS® Minis in the batter.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until done.
  • Once done, remove from oven and add 8 SNICKERS® Minis on top of the first set of candy bars. Let the brownies cool completely. You can place it in the fridge to cool down faster.

Caramel

  • In a mixing bowl, add in the caramel bits and heavy cream. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir until the cream is incorporated into the caramel.
  • Microwave for an additional 40 seconds. Stir until the caramel is smooth.
  • Add in half of the peanuts and stir.
  • Pour the caramel on top of the chilled brownies and smooth out.
  • Place back in the fridge to cool.

Ganache

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add in the heavy cream and milk chocolate chips. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir with a spatula. Place back in the microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. It should look like melted chocolate and completely smooth. Set aside and let cool until it thickens slightly.
  • Remove brownies from the fridge and spread the ganache over the caramel. Be sure to get all the edges and corners.
  • Place any sprinkles or decorations on top at this point.
  • Place back in the fridge to cool completely. It should take about an hour.
  • Slice brownies into squares.
