Let’s dive into the recipe!


For the Brownie Base:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Snickers Layer:

  • 2 cups Snickers candy bars, chopped into small pieces

For the Caramel Layer:

  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup caramel candies (like soft caramel squares)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter


1. Preheat Your Oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal.

2. Make the Brownie Base:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the 2 sticks of unsalted butter in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until fully melted.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  3. Gradually add the melted butter to the sugar and egg mixture, stirring until well combined.
  4. Sift in the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly.

3. Add the Snickers Layer:

  1. Sprinkle the chopped Snickers candy bars evenly over the brownie batter.

4. Create the Caramel Layer:

  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk, 1/4 cup unsalted butter, caramel candies, and heavy cream.
  2. Stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and the caramel candies have completely melted. This may take 10-15 minutes.
  3. Pour the caramel sauce over the Snickers layer, spreading it out evenly.

5. Bake to Perfection:

  1. Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie layer comes out with a few moist crumbs.

6. Prepare the Chocolate Topping:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semisweet chocolate chips and 1/4 cup unsalted butter. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate and butter are fully melted and smooth.

7. Add the Final Touch:

  1. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the caramel layer, spreading it out evenly.

8. Chill and Slice:

  1. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan. You can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
  2. Once cooled, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the brownies out of the pan. Place them on a cutting board and slice into squares.

9. Serve and Enjoy:

  1. Serve these delectable Snickers Brownies as a sweet treat for dessert or as a special snack. They’re perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, too!


  • For easy slicing, you can briefly run a sharp knife under hot water before cutting the brownies. This will help prevent the caramel from sticking to the knife.
  • If you’re in a hurry, you can use store-bought caramel sauce instead of making your own caramel layer.


  • Get creative with your brownie mix-ins! Add chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or even pretzels for extra texture and flavor.
  • If you’re a peanut butter fan, drizzle some melted peanut butter over the top before adding the chocolate topping.

Cook’s Note:

These Snickers Brownies are a true indulgence that combines the best of both worlds—chocolate and caramel. They’re perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings or for sharing with friends and family at special occasions. Be prepared for rave reviews because these brownies are a crowd-pleaser! Enjoy every decadent bite.
