Snickers Bar Blondies

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.

I used these ingredients. Snickers now have these unwrapped bites so all I did was chop them – no unwrapping!

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chopped Snickers Bars. Use your leftover Halloween candy if you wish.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until lightly browned. Don’t cook more than 35 minutes or the ingredients will caramelize.

    Very dry. Will not make again.

      Wow, we’ve never had any problem with these blondies being dry since they have so many Snickers bars cut up into them. I will say the dough really needs to be stirred thoroughly so all the ingredients stick together well before spreading into the baking dish. If you feel like the dough is too dry you can also add just a little bit of milk to moisten the dough (whether in this recipe or any other), and that should work.

    I had only 2 cups of chopped snickers left from Halloween and added 1 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts. These bars are fantastic. A little greasy though. Maybe I would use a little less butter.

      Hi, Kate, so glad you enjoyed the blondies. I’ve even used up to 4 cups of chopped Snickers before so there’s certainly a lot of sugar and butter involved!

      My husband and I have talked about doing it, but it’s really a lot of work and I’d have to charge an arm and a leg to make it profitable.

    These look really good, but my teeth hurt just reading the recipe! Don’t think I’ll try them unless I have somewhere to take them. They look dangerous!

      They really are fabulous. My husband got me one of those large pizza cutters that you kind of saw back and forth with. I can use that now!
