Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with nonstick foil, allowing foil to extend 2 inches over edges of pan. In large bowl, mix brownie mix, water, oil and eggs until well blended. Spread in pan.
  • 2
    Bake 24 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out clean. Do not overbake. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 3
    Remove brownies from pan by lifting foil. Pull back foil from edges of brownie. Trim 1/8-inch off edges of brownie. Cut brownie into 7 rows by 5 rows, making 35 squares.
  • 4
    Line cookie sheet or tray with sides with cooking parchment paper. Place 1 brownie square in palm of your hand, and press with fingers of other hand to flatten. Place 1 Snickers™ bites in center of flatted brownie piece. Wrap brownie around Snickers™ bite gently, pressing into a ball. Place on cookie sheet. Continue with remaining brownie squares and 34 of the Snickers™ bites. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • 5
    Finely chop remaining Snickers™ bites. In medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Using 2 forks, dip and roll chilled balls, one at a time, in melted chocolate. Return to cookie sheet; immediately top with finely chopped Snickers™ bites. If chocolate has cooled too much, reheat. Refrigerate brownie bites about 20 minutes or until coating is set. Store covered in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For even easier dipping, take two plastic forks, cut out center two tines, and use to dip into melted chocolate.
  • tip 2
    Customize your brownie bites! Try one or several of your favorite candies like Reese’s™ peanut butter cups, York™ peppermint patties, Kit Kat™ crisp wafers in chocolate or Butterfinger™ peanut butter cups, now available in unwrapped mini size.
  • tip 3
    Discard trimmed brownie edges, or reserve for another use, such as to top ice cream or pudding.
