The name comes from my tendency to "sneak" just one more while nobody is watching;) These are an easy, chewy bar cookie that reminds me of my favorite candy bar...Snickers, of course!!! You must try this one, but be careful!!! They are addicting!! It is also fun to get the kids to help with this one (i.e. unwrapping caramels, sprinkling on the choc. chips. Prep time includes chilling time.

You have no idea how much I love this dessert. You are right about sneaking just one more. I caught my husband as he was reaching in for the grab. They are delicious. Gooey and nutty and the best part is they are chocolate. Not so hard to make either. Thanks for another reason to get off the couch and go to the gym ;)

These are THE BEST brownies/squares/bars I have EVER eaten. I can't believe how good these turned out... I like to heat them up a bit in the microwave to get the caramel a bit melty and eat them with a fork. My entire family has been hounding me for the recipe! Thank you so much for sharing... pretty sure I'm going to be making these for the rest of my life.

Devastatingly delicious! Made it for a friend's birthday and he loved it. I used a regular choc. cake mix and probably a few extra choc. chips. I used chopped peanuts to keep the Snickers flavor--I mixed with the cake mix, but wonder how they'd be in the middle with the caramel and choc. chips? Hm, will just have to make them again!
