Snickers Brownie Bites

For the Brownie Bites:
3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla paste
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp cornstarch
48 mini snickers bars
Non-stick cooking spray

For the icing and caramel:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Crisco shortening
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/8 cup smooth peanut butter
1-2 tbsp water
3/4 cup caramel sauce

Preheat oven to 350-deg.

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a flat paddle, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the milk, egg, and vanilla, beating until well combined. 

Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cocoa, and cornstarch, then gradually add to the mixer.  Beat until well combined. 

Coat a mini muffin tin with the non-stick spray, then press 2 tsp of the batter into the bottom of each cup.  Press an indentation in the center, then bake for 8-9 minutes.

Remove the brownie bites from the oven and press the mini Snickers into the indentations.  Let cool for 3-4 minutes in the muffin tin, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.

To make the icing, use a hand mixer to beat the butter and shortening together until smooth, then add the confectioners sugar, one cup at a time, beating until smooth.

Add the peanut butter and cocoa and mix until smooth, followed by the water until the frosting reaches the right spreading consistency.

Top the brownie bites with the icing, followed by a drizzle of caramel sauce.
