Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Brownies

Imagine a Snickers bar combined with a gooey chocolate brownie, and there you have it, the snickers brownie. They are just the irresistible gooey chocolatey treat we can't say no to, and will have you keep going back for more. After all, we all deserve a treat every now and then!

Makes: 12

Cooking time: 1 hour


For the Salted Caramel:

  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 45g Butter
  • 75ml Double cream
  • Salt

For the Brownies:

  • 175g Butter
  • 350g of Golden Caster Sugar
  • Dash of Vanilla Essence
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 75g Cocoa Powder
  • 100g Crunchy Peanut Butter
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180℃, and line a tin with baking parchment.
  2. Start off by making the salted caramel, have all the ingredients weighed out as things happen quickly.
  3. Put the granulated sugar into a saucepan and stir constantly with a wooden spoon over a medium heat. This will begin to form clumps after a while, before beginning to melt into an amber-coloured syrup.
  4. Once all the sugar is melted, immediately put in the butter, stirring quickly and continuously. It will begin to rise up the pan and bubble so be careful. Stir this until all the butter is melted, about 2 mins.
  5. Slowly drizzle in the cream, again continuing to stir, until it's all in and combined (~1 min). Take off the heat and add the salt (tip - I add a little, wait for it to cool down, then add some to taste, nothing worse than overdoing the salt!). Set to one side while you make the brownies.
  6. Melt the butter on the hob slowly before pouring into a mixing bowl with the sugar and combining.
  7. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and add a little at a time to the butter and sugar, stirring to ensure it's all combined before adding the next lot. Repeat until all mixed in, and add a dash of vanilla essence.
  8. Weigh out the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder and sieve into the wet mix. Fold in the flour slowly, making sure you don't knock all the air out- I use a big metal spoon at this point. Stir until all combined.
  9. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tray, and spread it out evenly. Next, get the peanut butter and add random tsp size dollops throughout the brownie batter, until all the peanut butter is used.
  10. Put the tray in the oven for 20 minutes before removing and spooning the salted caramel over in random blobs and placing back in the oven for 10 minutes (slightly longer if you don't like them gooey).
  11. Place them on a cooling rack before cutting them up.

Serving Note: Enjoy them warm with a big dollop of ice cream, listening to some Olivia Rodrigo, heaven.
