These Snickers Brownie Bites are made with perfectly fudgy mini brownies, topped with peanut butter frosting, caramel sauce and chopped salted peanuts. A sweet and salty treat!

If there’s a combo that gets me every time, it’s chocolate and peanut butter.

These Snickers Brownie Bites?

They’re taking chocolate and peanut butter to a whole new level.

Ultra fudgy, homemade two bite brownies.

Creamy peanut butter frosting.

A drizzle of caramel.

A sprinkle of chopped, salted peanuts.

They’re a flavor explosion of the best kind.

We’re not strangers to snickers treats around here. This Snickers Cheesecake Cake was an instant hit (and incredible indulgence). This Snickers Cheese Ball is so fun for a party, and this Snickers Apple Icebox Cake is a fun twist on the classic “salad”.

The sweet, and fudgy, and chewy, and nutty, and salty, and crunchy….. it’s just perfection.

And they’re super easy to make ahead! You can either make the brownies ahead, and store them on the counter or in the freezer, or you can finished them and stick them in the fridge or freeze once they’re all dolled up.

Whatever you do, don’t try to resist. The world is a better place when chocolate, caramel and peanut butter are involved.

Variations on these Brownie Bites:

  • This brownie recipe is a great base for just about anything! Feel free to mix up the frosting, sauce, and toppings as you like (or do a few each way so that your lucky taste testers have some options to choose from).
  • You can make this recipe in a 9×13″ pan instead of bites if you don’t have a mini muffin pan, but you will bake for 25-35 minutes.

How to store Snickers Brownie Bites:

You can store these brownie bites at room temperature for several days, but I like to keep them refrigerated so that the frosting doesn’t get too warm and everything stays where it should.

These Brownie Bites also freeze perfectly, so they are great for keeping in the freeze for evening snack emergencies 😉

Ingredients

For the brownies:

  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour I’ve used both whole wheat and all-purpose
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt

For the peanut butter frosting:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • Caramel sauce
  • Chopped salted peanuts

Instructions

  • For the brownies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line mini muffin pan with paper liners or spray with non-stick. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and sugar. Whisk until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and whisk until smooth. Add flour, cocoa and salt and whisk until just combined. Spoon into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out dry or with moist crumbs (you don’t want to overbake). Set aside to cool (*you can also store at room temperature or in the freezer until you’re ready to frost – see post above for details)
  • For the frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a handheld mixer), beat peanut butter and butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until combined. Add cream, 1 tbsp at a time (beating after each addition), until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Spoon into a piping bag fitted with desired tip or a large Ziploc bag (or just use a spoon – that’s fine too!)
  • To assemble, pipe a small amount of frosting onto each brownie. Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with chopped peanuts.
  • Store in the fridge up to 4 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

    I feel like pretty much every day lately is one where I have a million things to do but don’t get much done because I’m not being organized! But any day where brownies are baked is a good day. 🙂 These look amazing! I’d be licking that peanut butter frosting out of the bowl!

  3. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates says

  5. Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze says

    These sound perfect for those crazy days. Chocolate and snickers is a heaven. And I say who cares about getting anything done. Just taking care of the girls is work in its self. You get that done every day, hehe.

  6. Nora @ Savory Nothings says

    I’m just WAITING for the day my baby girl starts undoing all the prep work I do in the kitchen, haha! There’s hardly ever a day I feel like I accomplished something since I had her, so I totally feel you! But these brownie bites? Your accomplishment for the next year or so 😉

  7. Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says

    Ahh, the good ole “helping” from preschoolers. I never want to deny my daughter, but the tasks takes so much longer. At least we know our kids will bake when they are older, right?! These brownies look amazing! I’ll trade you my s’mores cheesecake I am finishing up today for your brownies 🙂
