For all you brownie lovers, these snicker brownies are going to knock your sock off! They’re delicious, gooey, heavenly, and they melt in the mouth. Read on how to make the best of them while I go and grab another slice of these snicker brownies!
Tips for the best snicker brownies ever
These snicker brownies have three amazing layers of sweet goodness. The first layer are gooey brownies. They literally bring a death to your diet BUT SO WORTH IT! The next level is some crunchy peanut butter with marshmallows. And, the last, best layer is the salted caramel. I have lastly topped these with some roasted peanuts. Can I count this as my fourth layer? Haha.
Following are some tips you should definitely follow to nail these snicker brownies:
The brownie layer for these snicker brownies
- Use only dark chopped chocolate. Do not use cadbury dairymilk or a cadbury silk. This is candy chocolate- unstable for baking. Know more about best chocolate for baking.
- Please use the double-boiler method to melt chocolate and butter if you are new to baking.
- Sift the dry ingredients for the brownies to get a nice, consistent, and airy batter.
- Use parchment paper to get out the perfect snicker brownies!
The Peanut butter layer
- To prevent burning marshmallows, add the water to the saucepan.
- Make sure you are mixing peanut butter well with the marshmallows for a uniform mixture.
- Add icing sugar only for a stable peanut butter mix.
- Let the brownies cool completely before you layer your peanut butter mixture. Also, please allow the peanut butter mixture to come down to room temperature to avoid burning.
Ingredients for these snicker brownies
- Use only dark chocolate, like I previously mentioned. If you try baking with compound chocolates like dairy milk, your brownies will be stiff and they will burn too. You can use bourneville or amul chocolate.
- I have used Amul salted butter and thus, have missed out on adding more salt. You can add a pinch of salt to your brownie batter.
- Make sure you are using caster sugar or powdered sugar only. Using granulated sugar and not mixing it well will leave small bits of caramelised sugar in your recipe.
- I have used Skippy Peanut butter for the second layer Of these snicker brownies. They have the best peanut butter and a lot of variations too!
- You can use maida and marshmallows of any brand!
- The salted caramel is from sprig but the following recipe has a way to make your own caramel.
