Ingredients

for the brownie layer:

  • 1 boxed brownie mix, prepared according to package directions

for the nougat layer:

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 7.5 oz marshmallow fluff
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts

for the caramel layer:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted buter
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt

for the chocolate layer:

  • 12 oz dark chocolate (you can use chocolate chips or chocolate bars)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Grease a 9″x9″ baking pan with butter or oil, then line on all four sides with parchment paper. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Bake according to package temperature and directions, then allow to cool until just warm. Place brownies in fridge and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until completely chilled.
  2. To make the nougat, simply beat together the peanut butter, fluff, powdered sugar, and salt until combined. Mixture will be thick. Spread the nougat layer over the brownies using your hands into an even layer.
  3. Sprinkle peanuts over nougat layer, pressing down just slightly. Place brownies back into the fridge while you make your caramel.
  4. To make the caramel, in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, heat the sugar on medium low heat until its completely melted, swirling the pan gently every 20 seconds or so. The sugar will start to form clumps before melting slowly. Be patient and keep an eye on it to make sure it does not burn.
  5. Once melted, remove from heat immediately and stir in the butter. The mixture will violently bubble. You’re doing it right.
  6. Next, pour in the heavy cream and salt. Stir until everything is combined. Pour into small bowl or cup and allow to cool for 15 minutes before pouring over the nougat layer. Place brownies back in fridge to cool.
  7. Last, melt the chocolate! If using chocolate bars, first chop into small pieces. Then microwave the chocolate in 20 second increments, stirring in between each session. Once chocolate is fully melted, stir in coconut oil, then pour over caramel layer. Allow to cool completely in fridge before cutting into 16 squares!

Notes

Tips for Snickers Brownies

  • You can find a step by step guide on how to make perfect caramel here! Follow the directions for a double recipe, just using 2/3 cup of heavy cream instead of 1 cup.
  • You can use chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for the top layer of the brownies. The coconut oil will help to keep the layer soft enough to cut.
