Pretzel Bottom Snickers Blondies

funsweets

You know sometimes when you just get stuck on something?

I guess you could call it a phase.

Or an obsession.

No, let’s say faze.  It sounds less crazy.

Usually you have to grow out of a phase.  Let it run it’s course…

Like jelly shoes in elementary school, or “Country Blue” in the 80s…

Phases aren’t always a bad thing, they just are.

 

And people.

We are right now, smack dab in the middle of my Snickers phase.

Obviously they have been around a while.

They’re not new on the scene.

Kinda like that time when I downloaded 15 Simon and Garfunkle songs, listened to them on repeat over and over for weeks…asked my husband if he had heard their music… to which he laughed at me and said that I was about 40 years late to 60s.

Well, same thing applies here.

Snickers are old-school and I have just decided that I love them.

So they are basically on repeat here until I work through the faze.

S&G took about 4 weeks, jelly shoes about 6 months, Country Blue…well, I am embarrassed to say, but we’ll just go with a few years, *ahem…so we’re looking at a potential Snickers phase that might span between now and, say….2014.  Sorry.

 

This week’s take on Snickers is a little bit salty and a little bit sweet.

Pretzel Bottom Snickers Blondies
Photobucket Still with me?

And, it really couldn’t be easier…

The hardest part is unwrapping the candy bars.
Photobucket First dump some pretzels in the bottom of a greased 9×13.
Try and make them even…but you don’t have to try too hard.
Photobucket Then mix up some blondie batter and dump your Snickers in.
I used the bite sized Snickers, but you can coarsely shop up some full sized bars if you want…you’ll need 3 cups.
Plop that on top of your pretzels.
Photobucket Then spread it evenly.
Photobucket Bake that up for about 30 minutes…and you’re good to go!
You’ll need to let them cool before you cut them, but when you do, here’s what’s waiting on the underbelly.

Totally worth it.

These sound AMAZING! Yes, I’ve added them to the list…

Guest

MMMMMM!!!!! These look delish!
I cringed when I saw stores trying to bring back ‘jellies.’ Nope, they should stay dead, forever. Faze = over.

You’re going through a snicker phase? *snicker snicker* So does that include snickering while eating your snickers.

Okay, it’s not funny, I’ll stop. But, seriously, I don’t think you (or I or anyone) can get over snichers. Just like my addiction to peanut butter. It’s there. It always will be. Why suppress it? Not to mention the chocolately caramel peanutty goodness.

Awww yeah! I love it!

I’ll take two with my cup of tea this AM… as I sit here in my gym clothes procrastinating about actually walking out the door to exercise 😉

I went on a serious Snickers rampage the moment I gave birth to my daughter. I’m pretty sure my husband ended up emptying out the hospital vending room for me. Those were the best Snickers I’ve ever eaten.

Guest

I am allllll about your Snickers phase. Heck yes!! 😀

I always say that I’m on a “kick”. A Snickers kick can only mean good things. Especially when there are pretzels and blondies involved. I’m head-over-heels for these Shelly!

Guest

The bottom of these looks so delicious!

Guest

I need to taste test these to make sure they’re okay to feed to the masses 😉

Guest
May 31, 2012 11:04 am

Mmmm, can’t go wrong with adding candy into anything! And the sweet ‘n salty combo is always nice!

Guest

I’ve made Snickers Brownies before, but never Snickers Blondies. I’ve got to give these a try, thanks!

Guest
May 31, 2012 12:00 pm

I cannot wait to make these!

And for the record, I am in a Reese’s Cup faze. I’ll take ’em anyway I can get ’em. Mini, Dark, in ice cream, wrapped in an old shoe, doesn’t matter. I have a problem and my rear end is paying for it.

Guest

Well, okay. If you insist.

Guest

Ew, I forgot about jelly shoes. So many bad 90s fashion choices, lol. These blondies look amazing!

Is it possibly that bringing up 80s country blue could make me lose my appetite? Seriously, I’m picturing my childhood kitchen full of that color + geese + weird little flowers. Mmmm…nothing says food like that combo.

Great blondies!

What was it with the geese? My mother’s kitchen had that blue with rust colored accents, and geese. I never got the geese.

I am LOVING all of your snickers recipes Shelly. My hips however… well, I can just buy new pants.

I still think about my jelly shoes. I still want a pair, and I think I’d wear them if I could find them. Maybe people would laugh, but they’d want to eat the Pretzel Bottom Snickers Blondies I was snacking on! Who’s laughing now?

Guest

Snickers and pretzels. . .together in a blondie?? Yes, please!!

Guest

I think I have found my new best friend. I HATED Snickers as a kid, and have never had it ever since. I think You’ve just converted me..

Guest

I’m totally gonna make these bad boys! :)

Guest
May 31, 2012 6:58 pm

Gah! I am stuck on the salty sweet combo. These look soooo good! Snickers aphave always been close to the top of my fave candy bar list :)

Guest
May 31, 2012 8:15 pm

These look awesome! I love salty and sweet dessert combos!

Guest
May 31, 2012 8:23 pm

Guest
May 31, 2012 8:48 pm

Lol I wear jelly shoes 😛 Not right not cause it’s cold but they’re great for summer. And I’m not a huge fan of snickers but these sure look good…

Guest

Sweet + salty heaven!!

Guest
June 1, 2012 2:09 am

I was reading along thinking, these look pretty good, yeah, not bad, I could definitely eat those. I don’t know why, but the moment you showed the undersides with the pretzels showing through was the moment I thought, “Oh dear goodness I have got to make these NOW!”

My mouth is watering thinking about the salty, sweet, chocolatey, nougaty, peanutty goodness!

Guest
June 1, 2012 6:12 am

I am in complete support of your Snickers faze! Such a good idea to just put pretzels on the bottom like that.

Guest
June 1, 2012 8:49 am

Love sweet and salty! Perfection!

These look amazing, but I have a bag of mini-Reeses to use…think they would work or would the consistency be too mushy??? Thanks!

Guest
June 1, 2012 11:32 am

omg – these look amazing! Love your photos :)

Guest
June 1, 2012 12:27 pm

It’s okay…I’m totally in a Call Me Maybe phase, which is way more embarrassing than a snickers phase. And way less tasty. Also, yours produces sweet and salty bites of heaven. So you win!

Guest
June 1, 2012 3:14 pm

Again, you’ve managed to combine some of my favorite things ever. *sigh* I will never lose weight… LOL
Pretzel bottomed ANYTHING sounds wonderful.

Guest
June 1, 2012 5:42 pm

Hey, I just made blondies too! :) Adding Snickers and pretzels sounds completely evil and awesome. If your Snickers phase goes on and on, I won’t complain a bit. Right now I’m in a Doctor Who phase that is waaay past ‘phase’ and firmly in ‘obsession’ territory. Thanks for sharing!

These look so delish. I would eat the whole thing all by myself within 5 minutes of them coming out of the oven.

Guest

I love your Snickers obsession/faze!!! And these sound wonderful!!! I even have all the ingredients so I’m totally going to make these today! Thanks!

Guest
June 2, 2012 2:52 pm

holy blondies!! what a combination!! sweet, salty, chocolaty, peanutty, caramely—excuse me while i control my drooling issue at the moment! haha…thanks for sharing! amazing photos too!

Guest

Even though I can’t have snickers I LOVE that these bars have pretzels on the bottom! Sweet & salty anything is so addictive. Yum!!

Bought a few bags of mini snickers and wanted to make bars with them. I found your recipe and decided to give it a try. I made these and received rave reviews at how great they were. I love the combo of chocolate with the salty crunch of the pretzels and gooey caramel from the snickers. YUMMM!! Thanks for the great recipe!

Made these today, definitely prefer the sweet and salty combo of the white chocolate blondies you posted. If I made these again I would use light brown sugar, personally, I did not care for the molasses taste of the dark brown sugar. Also, I thought the pretzels lost some of their crunch. I wonder if it would help to toast them for a couple minutes before hand? Sending these down range to our troops, I am sure they’ll enjoy them! Thank you
