Chocolate Snickers Brownies

There's no such thing as "too many brownie recipes", which is why I never stop looking for them. Browsing Two Peas & Their Pod I came across a recipe for Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies. But since the peanut butter was meant to be swirled into the prepared brownies without being mixed with anything first, I decided to leave it out as I don't like it by itself. I can tell you, they are delicious without it, but if you really want the peanut butter, swirl a third of a cup of the creamy kind over the brownies before you bake them. Snickers aren't my favourite chocolate bar, but paired with these brownies I love them; the chocolaty, fudgy indulgence of the brownie with chewy, crunchy bites of Snickers is heavenly. 

Chocolate Snickers Brownies
(Adapted from Two Peas & Their Pod)

1 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped Snickers candy bars I used 4 full-sized bars

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside. Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined. Stir in Snickers candy bar chunks. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into squares and serve.
