Snickers Brownie Bars – Rich, fudgy brownies are topped with fluffy nougat, creamy caramel, crunchy peanuts, and dark chocolate. Reminiscent of your favorite candy bar, Snickers® fans, you’ll be in Heaven!

Snickers Brownie Bars

These brownie bars are phenomenal. They’re rich and dense, not cakey. They’re also chewy, and crunchy. – They’re a lot of goodness going on here with different layers and textures.

They’re great for sharing if you like to share desserts. (I don’t particularly like to share dessert.)

Snickers Brownie Bars


Snickers Brownie Bars are made of five different layers. The first layers are the brownies, then the nougat, caramel, peanuts, and chocolate. Each layer is simple to make. However, when they’re all combined they make an impressive dessert.

Each layer is simple and easy to prepare. However, the first, brownie, layer needs to cool before proceeding. Give yourself at least 30 minutes for the base layer to cool before topping it. You can speed the process by refrigerating it.
