Snickers Brownie Bites

IMG_8220

I don’t even know what to say.

These. are. absolutely. heavenly.

Especially if you like Snickers, caramel, brownies, or peanuts. I mean, really, all the flavors come full circle when you eat one of these tasty little treats.

Not only that but they tortured me all day long with their equally heavenly scent. They taunted me in the corner of my classroom, sitting over there behind my desk waiting for the day to be over so that I could partake of one at the baby shower for a staff member. Torture, I tell you. My students were even tortured with the brownie smell all day long.

I can’t say enough about these. They are so good and you must make some. Enjoy!

Snickers Brownie Bites
Source: My Baking Addiction

Brownies:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
48 miniature Snickers, frozen for at least 1 hour

Topping:
15 individually wrapped caramel candies
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 cup salted nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray the wells of a nonstick miniature muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at medium (50% power) for 3-4 minutes until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is melted.

Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt. Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.

Using a small cookie scoop (about 2 teaspoons), scoop the brownie batter into the prepared miniature muffin tin wells. Place a miniature Snickers into the center of each well and press it lightly into the batter. Do not worry about covering the Snickers with batter. Bake brownies in preheated oven for 9-10 minutes, the edges will look set. Do not over bake.

Remove from oven and let brownies rest in tin for just a few minutes. Use a toothpick to gently remove out of tin; cool completely on a cooling rack. Prepare the caramel sauce.

To make the caramel sauce, place the caramels and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments until the caramels begin to melt; stir frequently. Continue warming and stirring the caramels until you have a smooth, creamy mixture.

Place a few peanuts in the center of each brownie bite and drizzle the caramel sauce over the peanuts.

**Best served same day, but will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.**

Makes about 48 brownie bites
