Snickers Brownies

I’ve had some fun-sized snickers bars hanging around my house for a while now. Part of me wants to say they’re leftover from Halloween and the other part of me doesn’t want to admit that. Since they clearly weren’t being eaten as is, I thought I’d throw them into a dessert to use them up.

How do we make candy seem more appealing? Put it on a brownie. Brownies just seemed to be the perfect vehicle for those little Snickers bars begging to be eaten. I mean really, could there be anything better than brownies studded with sweet, crunchy, caramel-y candy bars?

No. Snickers brownies, you have ZERO competition.

The first giveaway can be found below my gluten free meyer lemon bread recipe. That giveaway is for a Le Creuset Signature Saucepan so don’t miss out on that!

Before you get to the recipe, I just want to let you know that these brownies would make fabulous brownie sundaes. Pile them high with with vanilla ice cream, chopped snickers bars, and a drizzle of chocolate AND caramel.

Now, tell me – what’s your favorite way to eat brownies – fudgy, chewy, cake-like, in ice cream, covered in ice cream, by the pan-full? Enjoy!

  • 5 Tbsp butter I used grass-fed
  • 1 1/4 C organic cane sugar or granulated
  • 3/4 C Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1/3 C avocado oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C gluten free all-purpose flour*
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 10 fun-sized Snickers bars chopped (about 1 cup)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, add the butter and sugar and heat in the microwave until the butter is melted. Stir to combine and add the cocoa powder and oil, mixing well to combine.
  • Add the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla and beat the egg to incorporate. Then mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch.
  • Stir in the Snickers bars and transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until just done. Don't over bake! Cool completely before cutting.


*I used Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Flour which contains xanthan gum. If your mix does not have xanthan gum, you'll have to add some.
When my brownies came out of the oven, I added additional chopped Snickers bars - I just pressed them into the slightly cooled brownies.

    Im confused, what are the measurements when it say “1/3 C” is this meaning cups? not very clear

  2. A) Can you be my mom and make these for me?
    B) I have a bag of coconut sugar I bought for a recipe and now I have no idea what to do with. Do you know if I could use it in these in place of the cane sugar?
    Visiting from the awesome Buns in my Oven.

      LOL 2 kids is enough for me ????
      As far as coconut sugar goes, you can use it but it will give it a slightly drier texture but not to the extent that coconut flour will. These are pretty fudgy/chewy so it shouldn’t be enough to make it too dry. You could always add 1-2 tablespoons of water though to offset that.

  3. Bethany says:

    Oh my! Yes! These brownies look so delicious!

  4. Sharon says:

  7. Brenda McCracken says:

    I’ve read that while Snickers are gluten free some cross contamination can occur during seasonal months when they are meeting supply and demand. Always good to read the labels during the holidays. May favorite brownies are cake like, Thanks for the chance.

  13. Diana Cote says:

    My favorite moist and dense with a slight chewiness and the slight crust on the top that cracks, oh my! I melt for those. haha I probably gave a horrible explanation. >.<

  14. They were leftover from Halloween? Did I read that right? That would NEVER happen in my house. I would eat them all. No willpower. There is never any leftover candy here! LOL I will gladly buy some though to make these scrumptious looking brownies!
