Peanut Butter Snicker Brownies!

Tonight was our family bingo night and teacher bake sale at school. Our PTA host a family night with a silent auction of baked goods that the teachers make. The kids get so excited about buy the things their teacher has made or bought. This year it was no different. Tons of delicious baked goods lined the tables in the cafeteria for some friendly biding wars.
Leading up to the bake sale I was racking my brain trying to find something that was going to be some what easy to make but more importantly didn't need refrigerating and could be transported easily. Several months ago Snickers came out with their new peanut butter snickers squares. As soon as I saw them I told Brock not only had I died and gone to heaven that I was more excited to figure out what to make with them! These could be used in so many different baking opportunities! My options were endless! Three days later I was catching up on my favorite cooking blogs when I found a recipe using my God sent heavenly treats....that is right my Peanut Butter Snickers!!!! So hands down I totally decided to use this recipe when making my bake sale item. Needless to say they were a success, bringing in a grand total of $28.00!!!!
So with out farther ado I give your the most delicious dessert treat that has ever been.....well at least one of the best! :)

Peanut Butter Snicker Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting...
aka....a piece of heaven! :)
(Cookies and Cups)
1 cup of sugar (splenda)
2 eggs
2 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup of butter (melted and unsalted)
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
2/3 cup of flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven 350 and spray muffin tins with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl stir sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Then add in melted butter. Mix well. Sift in cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt.
Scoop brownie batter into muffin tins. Press an unwrapped PB Snickers in the center of the brownie batter. Use the back of a spoon to spread the brownie mix across the top of the candy bar. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until edges are set and the center is no longer jiggly. Let them cool for 30 minutes before removing them from the pan.
While they are cooling go ahead and mix up the frosting.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 stick of unsalted butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 to 3 cups of powdered sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
In a medium sized bowl with a hand mixer beat the butter and peanut butter until smooth. Slowly add in sifted powdered sugar and then milk. Beat until smooth. Fill a piping bag with the frosting and then decorate however you want! Feel free to pipe any extra frosting directly in your mouth....its that good!
Eat and Enjoy!!!! :)

These do sound incredible! I haven't tried the new snickers yet but baking with candy is the best! I can see why they were such good sellers.
