Snicker Brownies are a gooey delight! We got this recipe from my sister’s friend. One year a long time ago, my sister and I went to New York. Her friend’s daughter lived there and she came to get a package that her mother had sent with us.
Some of her package was some of these amazing brownies, and she was kind enough to share not only a brownie, but also the recipe. I was 6 months pregnant at the time and I remember that we really wanted to see Phantom of the Opera.
There were not any seats left, but there were some places that you could stand. We got assigned banister standing spots, so at least we did have a banister to lean against. So we paid $15 to stand, and watched Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. It was fantastic. I was use to standing because that is what you do when you do hair for a living.

How Do I Make Snicker Brownies?

- Press half of dough evenly into greased and floured 9″ X 13″ baking pan.
- Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 6 minutes.
- Remove from oven and cool slightly.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over baked dough and spread melted caramel mixture on top of chocolate chips, working quickly.
- Crumble remaining half of dough over caramel and press lightly.
- Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 14 to 18 minutes, or until the top is set and mixture pulls away from sides of pan.
- Cool pan on wire rack about 30 minutes, then refrigerate until firm (can take several hours).
I remember when it was intermission, we went down through the seats to see if there were any seats that were open. People gave us the look like we were the slave and we should get back to our places. I didn’t really care what they thought, I decided if there was an empty seat, I would have enjoyed the show just a little bit better if I was sitting.
It had sold out, and that day everyone decided to show up. So we stood and watched it and it was still worth it.
Tips and Tricks for Snicker Brownies:
- You can add whatever kind of nuts you enjoy or leave them out if you do not care for nuts.
This dessert is rich, gooey, and good. The caramel marbling makes the dessert look very rich. Who can resist brownies, and then when caramel is added, that is just an added bonus.
One of my favorite candy bars is a Snickers. I love Snickers because they are so rich with the chocolate, nuts, and full of caramel. I can just see the caramel stretching out as I bite into the Snickers, and these Snicker Brownies are just the same. As you cut them and eat them the caramel just stretches out. What a treat this is!
