My Snickers Brownie Cups are an indulgent feeling bake that features one of my favourite flavour combinations! They are absolutely delicious!
Snickers bars were always my favourite chocolate bar and I never miss an opportunity to add that delicious peanut buttery, caramely twist to any bake when I get the chance! These cups are actually based on my Caramel Brownie Bars, however, I have just changed the shape of them! If you wanted you could try a bar style instead of cup, just like my Raspberry Brownie Bars or my Bounty Brownie Bars.
This recipe may seem a little bit faffy and time consuming because of the different layers, however, I promise you will find this recipe well worth the effort! If you were a little bit short on time there is no reason why you couldn’t make the peanut butter mixture and the brownies in advance and simply construct the bars just before you need them.
I use my Gooey Chocolate Brownies for the brownie layer in these cups. The brownie dough will be suspiciously thick and you may start to worry you have gone wrong but just stick with it! You have not missed an ingredient out, the batter is meant to be like that. It is worth mentioning that for these brownies I use a dairy free spread rather than a block of butter, ensure you do the same or the final result will not be the same!
When baking the brownies I have noted 15 minutes but you can allow up to 18 minutes. Do not worry if they are still a little bit soft in the centre as this will work in your favour when it comes to shaping them. You can store these in the fridge for up to five days or in the freezer for one month. Once the brownies have cooled you need to squash them down. You can either press down firmly using your hands, a rolling pin or even a potato masher. The aim is to simply ensure a squishy and easily pliable brownie.
When you are constructing these, please keep in mind that you may have more or less of the chocolate, brownie base and peanut butter mixture than others depending on how generous you have been with the layers. Do not just follow along with what I have written for the amounts noted down, use your initiative and if it looks like you are running out of chocolate, you have probably been ambitious with the amount of brownie balls you want to use. When I made these I did end up with some brownie batter left over – I simply melted some more chocolate and made brownie bites!
