Lately I’ve been obsessing over Snickers.
Peanuts, caramel, chocolate and nougat. Seriously what is there not to love?
After the success of my Caramel Snicker Brownies, I started to think about other ways I could use Snickers in bakes. The result?
Peanut Butter Snickers Bar Blondies!
Soft and chewy peanut butter blondies stuffed with gooey melted Snickers bar chunks and drizzled with melted chocolate. Absolute heaven!
Ingredients (makes 12 blondies)
125g light brown sugar
125g dark brown sugar
175g self-raising flour
130g unsalted butter, cut into chunks
70g creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium eggs, at room temp
3 x standard sized (48g each) Snickers bars, cut into small chunks
a few squares of milk/dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 170°C and line a 20cm square baking tray with greaseproof paper.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter in 20 second blasts on high power. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes.
Sieve the sugars into a separate bowl and pour in the melted butter, use a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and peanut butter and mix together. Add the flour and fold the mixture together, be careful not to over mix at this point.
Finally, fold in 2/3 of the Snickers chunks before transferring the mixture to your prepared baking tray. The mixture will be very thick so try to spread it out into an even layer, pushing it into the side, as best as possible. Press the remaining Snickers chunks into the top. Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes, until the edges are just starting to crack and are firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and leave to completely cool.
Once the blondies have cooled, melt the squares of chocolate in the microwave and drizzle it over the top of the blondies. Cut into 12 and serve. Blondies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
