These snickers brownies are fudgy in the center with thin crackle top and loaded with gooey chewy snickers bites! Brownie heaven!
You guys, I have a treat for you! Here are ooey gooey, fudgy, chewy brownies for you on this fine Monday. Got your coffee? Great! Let’s talk about these brownies.
5 basic ingredients mixed with a few more items to highlight the chocolate flavor and add some fun texture.
We start with classic brownie recipe that consists of usual suspects: butter, chocolate, eggs, flour and sugar.
For these fudgy, dense brownies, the amount of each of following basic ingredients is very precise. Slight changes in the amount of these ingredients will yield drastically different textures. For instance, more butter, or less flour than specified in the recipe will yield greasy, unappetizing brownies. Extra flour will make the brownies dry and cakey. The amount of sugar in my recipe is lower than most classic recipes call for, because I’m using semi-sweet chocolate and due to additional sweets from snickers. You got the idea, for best result, don’t make any modifications here please, and make sure to measure everything accurately.
Now, let’s talk about other ingredients. A touch of vanilla extract and espresso powder enhances the chocolate flavor in these brownies. I love adding a bit of espresso powder in my chocolate desserts to give a little extra oomph. But if you don’t have it, no need to run to the store. Salt in any sweet desserts brightens the flavor and balances the sweetness. A little pinch of salt makes all the difference. And the most important ingredient of all in this particular brownie recipe is Snickers bar.
Snickers add gooey, caramel-y, nutty, chewy texture to these brownies. Just perfection! Oh and this recipe is prepared in just one bowl. Yay, less clean-up!
