Although really easy, these fudgy Snickers Brownies, are sure to become a favorite. They are great for getting kids into the kitchen. When my grandson was five he made these and still does. After all a whisk, a bowl, a few measuring utensils yields a bonanza of brownies. If you don't have a food processor, don't freeze the candy, just chop the snicker bars by hand. Make these Snickers Brownies once and see if they don't become an instant favorite.
(This recipe appeared on KMOV's Great Day St. Louis and as such has no how-to photos)
½ cup butter (1 stick or 114 grams or 4 ounces)
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (114 grams)
1 cup sugar (200 grams or 7 ounces)
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup all purpose flour (70 grams or 2 ⅓ ounces)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees or if the pan is dark or glass, reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and spray the paper and the pan.
Melt butter and chocolate over hot water or microwave about 2 minutes. Whisk to combine the butter and chocolate. Whisk in sugar, vanilla and salt. Add eggs and whisk in. Add flour and stir to mix completely. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until set and a few crumbs cling to a tester.
10 to 12 fun size snicker bars
½ cup 40% cream
4 ounces semisweet chocolate
Cut each snickers into 6 to 8 pieces and freeze until hard. Place in a food processor and process until chopped. You want big and little pieces. Set aside.
Heat the cream until it steams, but does not boil. Remove from the heat. Add the semisweet chocolate and submerge it under the cream. Let sit for several minutes; then whisk gently until smooth.
Pour the glaze over the brownies and spread to the edges. Sprinkle with snickers pieces. Refrigerate to set chocolate. Cut into desired size squares. The brownies can be stored at room temperature after the glaze has set.
