Snickers Brownies

One of my favorite parts of being a Mom is making themed food, activities, and of course parties! There was no reason to make Zombie Punch when it was just me and Sean at home. But now I’ve got the kids that think things like that are AWESOME!!! and of course it gives me a reason to be creative and bake to my hearts content!

Snickers Brownies are a family favorite of ours. I mean, I love just a regular brownie, but add all the extras on top and they get so yummy. Almost too yummy to share!

So when I got the chance to do a review of 3 of our favorite #spookycelebration products, I knew that I had to share these brownies.

Snickers Brownies

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups + 3 T cocoa
1 1/2 cups oil
3 tsp vanilla
6 eggs
1/2 cup cup up snickers bar
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips
drizzle of caramel & hot fudge

Instructions

Heat oven to 375

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa and salt in a large mixing bowl. Then add the oil, vanilla and eggs and stir until all incorporated.

Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan (glass pan works best for the tombstone theme!)

Bake for 40-50 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

approx. 5 minute before baking is done, pull the brownies out and top with snickers, then marshmallows and followed by chocolate chips. Place back in the oven for remaining 5 minutes to melt everything all together.

Once the brownie is done baking, drizzle with caramel sauce & hot fudge.

Serve warm

Tombstone Brownies, perfect for your Halloween party Snickers Brownies with marshmallow

Once the brownies were made, I used a paper mache tombstone and spray painted it with chalkboard paint. Then just put an RIP on it for the background to the Snickers Brownie.

snickers brownies & zombie punch

The kids’ favorite part of this fun Halloween dessert was the Zombie Punch. They had to much fun with it. We got some eyeball bouncy balls, cleaned them really well and set aside. I then crushed up about 1 cup of frozen strawberries, and 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds for the zombie guts. For the juice, I used a 1:2 ratio of Hawaiian punch to 7-up. Put it all in a big punch bowl, throw in the zombie guts and eyeballs for the finishing touches!! This could also be really fun served with dry ice!!!
