Snickers Brownies

I have been trying for two days now to write this post...I'm not sure why it has been so hard. The words just aren't coming. This is my fourth draft, and I have decided to skip the story and get straight to the point.

My mom's birthday was this last Tuesday on the 10th. For those of you who are new around here, she died eight years ago in June. She was my best friend and I miss her like crazy. Her birthday, her death anniversary and all of November and December are really hard. So to help cope and make it a bit better I have things I like to do for each occasion that makes things lighter, and more fun. It helps me remember the good, happy times and it keeps her a part of my life. Sometimes the celebration is bigger than others. For example a couple of years ago it was big. This year it was just small, with some yummy Snickers Brownie ala mode. Mom loved Snickers! We had a little joke that she wanted to be buried with a Snickers in her casket. I remember one time we made these brownies and fought over the last corner piece...the corner brownie is the best, especially when that corner brownie is full of caramely, nutty pieces. So I thought it would be a good birthday treat to enjoy and to remember her. And it was delightful. This isn't a hard thing to make at all and I'm sure many or all of you have done this same thing. But I figure this can act as a tasty reminder. So get your brownie mix and Snickers bars and get baking!

Snickers Brownies


1 Family Sized Brownie Mix and all ingredients to make them
6 fun sized Snickers Bars
Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce (optional but highly recommended)

Mix brownies as directed on box. Cut snickers into chunks (I cut mine into six pieces). Add Snickers to brownie batter. Pour batter into greased pan and bake as directed. Let brownies cool, mostly. Scoop ice cream and pour chocolate sauce onto warm brownies and enjoy. Like I said, easy.

*My Notes*
~I used 6 fun sized bars, but would have enjoyed a few more...personal preference
~I mostly mix my brownie batter and then add the Snickers and finish mixing it up
