Microwave Peanut Butter Caramel Brownies
- Canola oil for greasing pan
- 1 pouch (10.25 oz) fudge brownie mix (or 2 cups/500 mL plus 2 tbsp/30 mL from 18-oz or 450 g pkg)
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) water
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
- 1 egg
- 10 fun-size (0.6 oz/17 g each) chocolate-covered peanut caramel nougat candy bars (Snickers®)
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) creamy peanut butter
Arrange the candy bars in the baker (in two rows of five). Pour batter over candy bars and spread evenly.
Place the peanut butter in the 1-cup (250 mL) Silicone Prep Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 15-20 seconds or until slightly softened.
Using a 1 tbsp (15 mL) Measuring Spoon, place 4 scant spoonfuls of peanut butter onto the batter. Using the handle of another Measuring Spoon, swirl the peanut butter into the batter.
Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 4-6 minutes, or until the edges are firm and a wooden pick inserted in the brownie comes out almost clean.
Carefully remove the baker from the microwave. Let stand 10 minutes, then cut into 10 brownies.
