Snickers Brownies

PinterestFacebookTwitterStumbleYummlyEmailIn honor of all things fair and equal, I figured I should come up with a Super Bowl snack for Green Bay.  The first thing that came to mind was, of course, those cheese-head hats they wear. Google “food traditions” and “Green Bay” and you quickly discover they like a few things a lot...
