My Favorite Brownies

Happy Halloween! Snickers offer a yummy way to use up leftover Halloween candy!

My Favorite Brownies


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened Hershey’s natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8- inch pan. Set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat in remaining ingredients. Spread the batter into prepared pan.

Bake in pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes. Remember oven temperatures do vary. Do not overcook.

Remove brownies and let cool on a wire rack 10 minutes before spreading frosting. Spread frosting on brownies while they are still slightly warm.

 To make frosting: Combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar. Stir until ingredients are combined. Spread evenly over top of warm brownies.  Sprinkle with chopped Snickers candy. (Milky Way, Butterfingers or Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cups work well too.)
