Being a parent means knowing how to unwrap a Snickers without making a noise.
While I do not have children of my own yet, I have enough friends with children of their own to know how leftover halloween candy works. You either slowly steal candy from your children and hide it so they eventually forget about it or you eat it all yourself!
Now that we are officially in November, many of us are stuck with leftover Halloween candy that we have no idea what to do with. If you have the will power to throw it all away, you are a better person than I am. If you are like me and don’t have the heart to throw away all of that delicious chocolate, I have a solution for you!
Take your leftover candy and turn it into ooey gooey Double Chocolate Snickers Brownies!
Not only is it the ultimate brownie treat, filled with caramel, peanuts and TONS of chocolate; but it also gets rid of your leftover candy in one large batch!
How to make the Ultimate Snickers Brownies:
Remember the brownie skillet we talked about a few months ago? Imagine that but a much bigger version loaded with all kinds of chocolatey goodness.
Making these ooey gooey brownies is incredibly easy and can be made in one large bowl!
To make them you want to add melted butter, sugar and coconut oil into a bowl. Stir well to combine the ingredients.
Next add in your eggs & vanilla extract. Again mix well but don’t over mix! Over mixing brownies can create a thick dense dessert instead of the airy chocolate dish you will have been trying to go for.
To finish off your batter add in cocoa powder, flour and salt. Mix until you have a nice thick brownie batter.
Now for the fun stuff. Roughly chop up 4-5 fun size snicker bars. Add those as well as 3/4 worth of your chocolate chips into the bowl. Give your batter a few good stirs to combine & your brownie batter is complete!
Add your batter into a greased/lined baking pan. Top with your remaining chocolate chips and snickers for a fun garnish!
Bake your brownies in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Try your best not to hoard the Snickers Brownies all for yourself, your friends & family should at least be allowed to have one!
When your snickers brownies are fully baked, try your hardest to let them cool for 5 minutes before cutting into them.
They not only smell amazing but taste DELICIOUS! I was given 2 thumbs up from my man on this dish. In fact, after his 3rd brownie he told me I had to get rid of them before he ate the entire batch himself…needless to say they were a hit!
Leftover Halloween candy doesn’t have to go to waste; making them into Double Chocolate Snickers Brownies not only helps you get rid of your excess candy, but you will make your belly happy at the same time!
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 4-6 fun size snickers
Preheat your oven to 375.
Into a large bowl add granulated sugar, coconut oil and melted butter. Whisk to combine.
Next add your eggs and vanilla extract. Stir to combine, do not over mix, when it becomes a deep yellow you are done.
Add cocoa powder, flour and salt into the bowl. Using a large spoon, mix all of the ingredients together. Again once you get a deep brown thick batter you are done.
Give 3/4 of your snickers bars a rough chop. Add them as well as 3/4 of your chocolate chips into the bowl. Give it 2 good stirs.
Generously grease a 9x9 baking pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Scoop your brownie batter into the pan and spread the top so it is smooth.
Sprinkle the remaining snickers & chocolate chips on the top of the brownies.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until brownies are cooked through. (My pan was thicker so it took closer to 20 for the middle to firm up).
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, slice your brownies up serve & enjoy!
