Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2012
Snickers Bar Blondies are simply to die for! Each 9×13″ pan has 3 cups of scrumptious chopped Snickers Bars. Oh, my! Deliciousness at its best. These blondies are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Rich, gooey caramel, chocolate, and peanuts fill every bite of this decadent, rich, tempting bar. You and your family will love these wonderful goodies.
Every year after thanksgiving I use up all the Halloween candy making some kind of bar-type cookies. I usually end up making one with Snickers, one with Heath Bars, and one with Reese Cups. And yes, each one is amazing. I base the recipe on my favorite blondie recipe, Chunky Blond Brownies. I have used this basic recipe with every type of chip, every type of cookie, every type of nut, even dried fruits and every one has come out quite spectacularly.
I will admit this is a sugar high waiting to happen. If you are looking for a delicious new brownie-type recipe to try this holiday season, or you just want to use up a lot of leftover Halloween candy, this is the recipe for you! But make sure you don’t overbake these bars. Cook them just until done 25-30 minutes – no longer than 35 minutes. If you can get your family to stop eating them you may be able to take them along to a holiday party or other function…….but don’t count on having any leftovers!
When I initially posted this recipe in November 2012, I was making them for my yearly Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. Unfortunately I was still using an iPhone for a camera so my pictures were not as crisp and clear as I would have liked. Plus, my pictures were too gaudy and busy with Christmas decorations. I recently remade a batch of these delectable treats (July 2016) and retook the pictures. The first time I made this recipe I used 4 cups of chopped Snickers Bars. While the blondies were okay, it was too much sugar so that the bars almost caramelized while baking. This time I baked the bars with only 3 cups of chopped Snickers Bars and the outcome was incredibly better. I also purchased unwrapped Snickers Mini Bites to make these. It was so much easier than unwrapping all those miniature candies! In fact, I thought these blondies turned out perfectly. Whether you want to make these for Christmas, to use up Halloween candy, or make to take to a tailgating game, these Snickers Bar Blondies are terrific. I hope you give them a try.
Snickers Bar Blondies are delectable, decadent, delicious!
Each bite is filled with Snickers Bars! Peanuts, chocolate, caramel – yay!
Everyone loves Snickers Bars, and everyone will love Snicker Bar Blondies! They are great treats to take along to holiday parties.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. Snickers now have these unwrapped bites so all I did was chop them – no unwrapping!
Place softened butter in large mixing bowl. Add brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and baking powder.
Mix all ingredients together with an electric mixer or a whisk.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chopped Snickers Bars. Use your leftover Halloween candy if you wish.
Stir all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
Spray a 9×13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until lightly browned. Don’t cook more than 35 minutes or the ingredients will caramelize.
This close up shows the gooey caramel, chocolate, and peanuts in the bar. These wonderful Snickers Bar Blondies melt in your mouth!
If you enjoy chocolate, caramel and peanut butter flavors in a great brownie-type dessert bar, you’ve got to give these a try.
