Snickers Peanut Blondies

Why, oh why did this take me so long?

Last week I was driving around and suddenly it occurred to me that I just don’t bake with Snickers very much. And why? No good reason! Seriously, folks. What is wrong with me?

So to make up for this gross error in judgment, here’s a whopper. It’s a peanut butter blondie filled with Snickers and peanuts. It doesn’t get any better than this for you lovers of all things chewy, caramel, peanut, and chocolate. And it’s all made in just one bowl, no mixer involved!

As I write this, I’m on the couch with some kind of summer cold from hell. It’s affecting everything, from my stomach to my limbs to my sinuses. It’s kind of like a light flu. But if you think I’m complaining, think again. I love being sick, because then Kenny takes the kids out of the house and I get to watch Netflix in bed.

I’m definitely on the lookout for new shows to get addicted to, so if you have recommendations, fire away. And yes, I’ve seenΒ Orange is the New Black. No, I didn’t like the latest season. Slow, slow, slow. I miss Vee. And all the fighting.

The problem with so many TV shows is that they start off amazing and then somewhere between seasons three and seventeen, they turn bad. The writing is less snappy, the characters change, the plot lines get recycled. And when the guy and girl finally do get together, they have to break up a million times to keep the show going or else have a baby, which kills the show for good.

Don’t get me wrong. I realize how hard it is to be consistently creative. Jeez, I’m a food blogger. I can never bake the same thing twice, and those of us who do this for any length of time are in constant creation mode. I’m not sure if anyone else is afraid that the ideas will one day run dry, but I certainly wonder.

But that day hasn’t come yet, my friends. These Snickers peanut blondies are absolute proof. The base is a simple blondie with peanut butter subbed in for some of the butter. Some Snickers bites and salted peanuts later, poof! A truly memorable and easy bar.

If you’ll excuse me, I have to hop off to replenish my Kleenex supply. But I’ll be eating these when I feel better, and that’s a promise. In the meantime, I need shows to watch. Recommend away!


Snickers Peanut Blondies


1 and 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (I used Jif Natural)
2 eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Snickers bites
1/2 cup salted peanuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line an 8 x 8 pan with foil, leaving enough to overhang the sides, and coat in cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Take a larger bowl and mix the brown sugar, melted butter, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla until just blended. Add the dry ingredients gradually and mix until incorporated. Fold in the Snickers bites and salted peanuts.
  4. Spread the batter in the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the edges are browned. The middle might jiggle slightly, but it will harden as the bars cool. Do not overbake. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.


I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

    You have just made me realise that I haven’t had a Snickers in well over a year. I remember when they used to be called Marathon bars, in the UK they did anywhere.
    I think this is a great use for them!

      Is THAT what a Marathon bar is?! I always wondered, Dannii! Thanks for clearing that up!

  2. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice

    Hope you feel better, Mir! I feel like I watch too many tv shows come the fall, but some of my favorites are Revenge (although that just ended), Nashville, and American Horror Story. And I love snickers too, but never bake with them, either! I definitely need to change that after seeing these blondies. I love how thick they are! These would definitely be perfect for breakfast right about now!

      Thanks, Alice! I’m working on changing things up a little. And Reese’s PB cups are my favorite, too, soul sister! I’m definitely mainlining them a lot this week. They help with the summer colds. πŸ™‚

  4. Sam @ SugarSpunRun

    Ugh, so sorry to hear about your cold! Colds in summertime are just so unfair! These blondies look delicious, I hope they made you feel at least a bit better!

      At least the warm sun rays can help the sinus situation, Sam! Thanks much!

  5. Rachelle @ Beer Girl Cooks

    I love your new site design! I totally binged on OITB the last few weeks and loved it! I hated Vee! Nashville if a favorite for sure. Game of Thrones and Shameless are great. I also loved Sons of Anarchy – that one is over so you can binge on the whole thing. These Snickers blondies look awesome and would be the perfect binge tv watching snack.

    P.S. I also really really love General Hospital. Don’t judge me.

      Oh, I’ve seen the Sons of Anarchy on Netflix and it’s got Charlie Hunnam, so I’m down with that plan. And I would never judge you. I used to watch Guiding Light!

  6. Medha @ Whisk & Shout

    Hope you kick the summer cold- or don’t, and enjoy some time off πŸ™‚ I totally agree with the TV shows going bad situation; it’s unfortunate, but I can never bring myself to actually blame writers for losing the creative spark, that’s hard stuff to do! Maybe that’s why shows like True Detective and American Horror Story, which feature new cast/plotlines each season, do so well! These blondies look great- pinning!

      That’s brilliant, having new characters each season. Gotta try it. Thanks for the recommendations, Medha, and for the pin!

    Snickers are the best! Chocolate + caramel + peanuts + nougat = heaven. What a great idea to add them into blondies! These sound magical! Love the blog’s new design too!!! Looks amazing πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much, Harriet Emily! It’s mostly done, just a few adjustments here and there. I appreciate it!

  8. Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg

    I hope you feel better, Mir. Being sick in the summer is the worst. I know I’m about 20 years late on the band wagon, but I’m watching “Twin Peaks” right now on Netflix. “The Fall” was pretty crazy as well and “Orphan Black” is a new favorite of ours, but you can only watch it on Amazon Prime.

      It’s okay to be behind the trend, Erin! I always see shows way after they air. And I have Prime, so I’m gonna check it out!

  9. Manali @ CookWithManali

    Ooo yes what took you so long to bake with Snickers Mir? Lol but I’m glad you did and what better way to start then these blondies! they look yum!

    PS: love the new blog design, great job!

      Thanks, Manali! I seriously forgot to bake with Snickers. Like a big blank. And thanks for the compliment on the design. I have a great student who helped me out!

  10. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary

    Totally digging the new revamp you have going on in your little slice of www dot Com land! But, not digging the fact that you have the summa flu. No bueno!! I hope you get better soon- because you have these ah-mazing blondies that need to be consumed in mass quantities. At least that’s how I would like to eat them- all in one sitting. Belly ache be d@mned! These sound packed with some serious scrumptiousness! And made in one bowl? Holla! Awesome! Definitely pinning these!
    For shows to watch: house of cards, suits, true detective, banshee
    β™‘Hope you feel better soon!!

      Cheyanne, you crack me up. I love that you wrote “summa” flu. Thanks for giving me my first laugh of the day! I want to try House of Cards, too, so that will now go to the top of the list!

  11. Stacey @ Bake.Eat.Repeat.

    Ugh, being sick in the summer is no good. Although netflix in bed with no kids around isn’t half bad! I’m currently addicted to Grey’s Anatomy, but I realize I’m a decade behind the rest of the world on that, so it’s unlikely you haven’t already watched it all! Get better soon! Also love the new look! Oh, and these blondies are fantastic. Now I’m wondering why I’ve never made anything with Snickers!

      I totally have not seen it, Stacey. Like you, I’m behind everyone else. So thanks! I’m going to try it!
