Sinfully Delicious Snickers Bars

If you're looking for a decadent, yet relatively easy bar-cookie, then drop everything and make these! I've made the original recipe, found here, and they are seriously delicious. My future sister-in-law was raving about them, and I think her comment was "It tastes like cookie dough!" That, to me, is great because I love cookie dough.

They. Are. Rich. I made them for my brother's birthday and he said they'd be gone by the morning . . . He ate one, and said "These are really filling." Aptly said. They are filling, so you can cut them into smaller pieces and everyone will still be satisfied. Snickers satisfies, right?

But, as the original recipe uses regular Snickers and I had the Peanut Butter Snickers on hand, I decided to go rogue and change it up a bit. The result was just as delicious, and as I said, decadent. The only difference was probably that the center wasn't quite as, well, gooey for lack of a better word. But seriously, try these. Whether you try the original recipe or my version, you won't be disappointed!

Sinfully Delicious Peanut Butter Snickers Bars
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 c. uncooked oatmeal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
9 Fun-size Peanut Butter Snickers, roughly chopped
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. caramel sauce
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a 9x13 pan with tin foil, then spray it with cooking spray (this will make it much easier to remove the bars from the pan and cut them cleanly).
2. Beat butter and sugar until combined, 1 minute. Scrape down bowl.
3. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and beat again for 1-2 minutes.
4. Stir in oatmeal and flour just until combined. Fold in chopped Snickers, then spread evenly in prepared pan.
5. Stir together peanut butter and caramel, and drop dollops over the batter. Use a butter knife to swirl the dollops into the batter (don't use a sharper knife or it won't swirl, it'll just cut through).
6. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned on top, and still very slightly jiggly in the middle - you don't want to overbake. Allow to cool completely before removing from pan. They'll set and firm up as they sit.

Hugs and cookies,
