Snicker Brownies

You need to make these brownies today.  Don't delay.  They are delicious!!  If you like brownies, and you like Snicker candy bars, this is a win, win for you.  Can you see the little Snicker bars peaking out?

This recipe is made in an 8 x 8 inch square pan.  I lined the pan with parchment paper.  Here they are right after I took them out of the oven.

And this is after the brownies were frosted.

I cut them into squares, but while doing this was distracted, as you can tell by the fact that this picture isn't centered in the least.  When I'm photographing my recipes, I'm not inclined to talk to anyone!!  I should stop and finish photographing my food later, but I am chasing the light these days.  Ah, well.

They are chocolatey, dense, moist, and very decadent.  I plan to make them again this Saturday for lunch with my family.  

My aunt gave me this recipe many years ago.  She got it from a very dear friend of hers.  For some time, her friend wouldn't share it with her, but eventually relented.  Years later, this friend of my aunt's moved across the street from me.  She was a lovely neighbor and friend.  I was in her gracious old home on many occasions, and she had this brownie recipe printed and framed in her kitchen.  It must have been a family heirloom.
   The original recipe did not have candy bars in it, but it did have nuts.    

Snicker Brownies:

2 semi-sweet chocolate squares
1 stick margarine - melt with chocolate
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
9 bite-size Snicker bars

Melt chocolate and margarine in a small saucepan.  Remove from heat and let cool a bit.  Stir in sugar, flour, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, and salt.  Spread in an 8 x 8 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Press bite-sized Snicker bars evenly spaced into batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
If you want the brownies more chocolatey,  simply use more chocolate squares.  The same goes for the icing.


Melt 1/2 square of semi-sweet chocolate with 1/4 stick margarine.  Add to 1/3 box of powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and milk to right consistency.  Beat with a mixer.

Spread icing on top of cooled brownies and cut into squares.

Serve to family and friends!!  They will thank you . . .
