Snicker Doodlies or Peanut Butter Squares.

These are not the cinammony, lovely snickerdoodles that we make at Christmas time. These are Snicker Doodlies, so called because they remind me of a cross between a Snickers bar and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I made them tonight as a surprise for the husband, off fighting with a stick somewhere. He loves a Snicker Doodly, so he does...who wouldn't?

Snicker Doodlies
For the base:
50g dark muscovado sugar
200g icing sugar
50g unsalted butter
200g smooth peanut butter

For the topping:
200g milk chocolate
100g plain chocolate
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 square brownie tine, lined, approx.23 cm square.

Stir all the base ingredients together until smooth, either in a mixer or with a wooden spoon. Don't worry too much about lumps. Press the mix into the tin trying to make the surface as even as possible.

To make topping, melt the chocolate and butter together and spread over the base. Put in fridge to set. You may think you can eat all of this at one sitting but you can't. No-one can. Homer Simpson couldn't. It is very rich but incredibly more-ish so be careful. Do not say I didn't warn you.

Oh, sounds very tasty ... but I'm afraid I don't know what muscovado sugar is -- is that what we call brown sugar in the States? Sorry I sound totally dumb there?! Welcome to SITS and good luck with your feeding your family for 50! I'm all about saving & finding a good deal too!

Yum! I am drooling over here. If not this recipe, those cupcakes you've got over on the sidebar are adding fuel to the fire! Yummy!!!

Stopping by from SITS and wanted to welcome you to the SITStahood!

Love,
Taryn

The Mom, dark brown sugar would work just as well.
