The Best Blondies Recipe

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 phase.  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.

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…they’re not a fleeting trend. But lately I have just been all about a Snickers bar. Or actually, I’ve been all about the snack sized Snickers bar.  Because they’re smaller than a full sized (obviously) and I tell myself I will just eat one…or two…

Then 15 minutes later I am surrounded by candy wrappers. And I realize I should have just eaten a full sized bar. I really need to get control of my life.

But in the meantime, let’s bake some Pretzel Bottom Snickers Blondies. Because they are EVERYTHING.

How to Make These Sweet & Salty Blondies

To get the “pretzel bottom” all you have to do is dump your pretzels into the bottom of your prepared pan. Obviously, you want them to be evenly distributed, but don’t waste too much energy on this step.

Pretzel Bottomed Snickers Blondies
Chop up a bunch of Snickers…about 8 full-sized bars. But you can also use snack sized, it even those little pop-able unwrapped ones. Whatever you’re feeling…

The dough is something to behold.

Pretzel Bottomed Snickers BlondiesSpread the dough evenly over the pretzels and pop that whole situation in the oven.

You will have to let them cool completely to get perfect slices. Or even let them cool overnight if you have self control. I generally don’t.

These Pretzel Bottom Snickers Blondies are the perfect sweet and salty combo! They’re ultra buttery, chewy and delicious dessert bars with a crunch!


  • 3 cups pretzel twists
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped Snickers bars (about 8 bars)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil or parchment, and coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Spread the pretzels evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. If they overlap, it’s fine.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar together for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  4. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and salt and continue mixing for another minute, until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  5. Turn mixer to low, add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
  6. Mix in the Snickers until evenly incorporated and spread the dough in the pan on top of the pretzels.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is almost set.
  8. Let cool completely or overnight before slicing.


store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

You inspired me deeply with this great recipe. As a foodie and baker, i love to eat Blondie but i never tried to make this at home. I am happy a got an exceptional recipe and i would love to try.


I recently made your Death by Snicker Bars but didn’t use all the dough. I had made them before and thought the bars were too thick (go figure!). So I froze the leftover dough and planned to make cookies with it. But not anymore! Now that I’ve seen this recipe again, I think I’ll make these using an 8×8 pan. The dough is similar, I’m sure they’ll be wonderful!


I will be making this for my daughter this weekend for her grade trip to Washington DC. She will be a hero to her friends!! And I will have it out of my home while she’s gone. Win Win!!! Thank you!!!!

These are in the oven as I type. The hardest part was evening out the batter on top of the pretzels. But otherwise, super easy and my kitchen smells divine!!! Can’t wait to cut into it!

I think its quite possible that you are a witch and should be burned at the stake. I have been lost on your site for an hour trying my level best NOT to pin every recipe you have written. This stuff looks amazing!

I just saw packages of unwrapped Snickers at a Super Walmart yesterday. They’re in a resealable zip-type bag. (Like anyone would have any leftover.)


I want these in my mouth!!! I just made blondes with pecans and chocolate chips today, and now I want to make these even more!


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


I spied your feature on Today’s Creative Blog this morning Shelly!!! How fun!!


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!


I don’t like snickers, would another candy bar work as well. No peanuts!

I hope your snickers faze continues, YUM!


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

caralyn @ glutenfreehappytummy

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!

Erin @ Making Memories

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!

Kim Bee

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

LaChelle @ SugarDuchess

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!


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


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!

Sarah @ Miss CandiQuik

omg – these look amazing! Love your photos 🙂


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!


Love sweet and salty! Perfection!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet

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