Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies

Close-up of three Peanut Butter Snickers Brownie cups


So, I was in Target last week.

Nothing unusual about the visit.
Had the normal things on the list: toothpaste, chicken nuggets, socks…
I did, however, pick up a few items that were a little, um..personal.
So when check-out time came I tried to pick my lane wisely…you know what I mean.
So I chose “aisle 6”.
Sounds like a good choice, right?
Aisle 6 was manned by an older lady, probably in her 70’s who has seen it all and most likely doesn’t even know what a “Spanx” is.
I knew I was safe.
Until…UNTIL…shift change.
As soon as I got up to check out there was a shift change and Grandma Target got replaced by Creeper Craig.
I try not to judge.  Seriously, I try.
But Creeper Craig was one date away from Chris Hansen.
Every “lady” item that came down that conveyor belt he studied and commented on…
“Oh, so you can use Nair on your face?”
“Wow, a super body shaper.  Is that better than just the regular? Hehe”
Not funny Creeper Craig.
And, I saved the best for last, “Does this come in flesh tone?”
He really said that..in a really, REALLY creepy way.  Like, licking his lips creepy.
I came home and showered.
And returned said “body shaper” the next day.
It had bad juju.
But here’s the beauty of Creeper Craig…on my visit back to Target to return the tainted body shaper, I found a little bit of deliciousness.
Peanut Butter Snickers.
Could it be possible to improve on a Snickers bar?
Let me tell you, they are yummy and quite possibly better than the original.
Way to go people at Mars!
Here’s what became of the remaining Peanut Butter Snickers…I say “remaining” because someone may have gone and eaten pretty much the entire bag.  I’m not naming any names, but it may have been me…or maybe not, but maybe…

Make your brownie batter and press unwrapped Snickers square into each cup

 Spreading across the top with a spoon.

The brownies will look like they have sunk in the middle making the perfect little dent for frosting.

While the brownies are cooling make your frosting..peanut butter and chocolate separate.
If you want to make your frosting swirly like I did fill your bag like this…
…peanut butter on one side and the chocolate on the other.
Try to get about 1 cup of each frosting (totaling 2 cups) in your bag.
To get the swirled effect it’s best not to refill you bag.
 Squeeze out the first bit of the frosting until the two flavors are combined
Then pipe on to cooled brownies.
Here’s how they look on the inside…
So I guess I have to say thank you to Creeper Craig for spreading his creepiness on my “body shaper”, BUT it looks like I will now have to go back to Target and re-purchase the returned item, because after eating all the Peanut Butter Snickers in the house I definitely need it.
It’s a vicious cycle, I think Target might be in on this conspiracy.
I just won’t buy it in flesh colored.

  2. You can add more milk or sugar depending on the consistency you prefer.
  3. For chocolate frosting using a medium sized mixing bowl beat butter with hand mixer until smooth. Slowly add in sifted powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Then add milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

  5. Fit your piping bag with your tip. (I used a Wilton 1M tip)

  9. To get the swirled effect it’s best not to refill you bag.
