SXSW is the time for over-the-top events, and what’s more excessive than a chocolate-based dinner inspired by Snickers? That’s what Launderette chef Rene Ortiz and Peruvian-focused chef Kati Luedecke are doing with special meals during the festival.

While Luedecke doesn't involve chocolate for most of her menu, her churros are filled with those Snickers. Ortiz is incorporate chocolate (though not the actual candy bar) with every course of his meal, from empanadas to semifreddo. Both of the full menus follow below.

Luedecke’s dinner takes place on Sunday, March 12, with Ortiz’s on Monday, March 13, at Collide ATX on East 6th Street. It’s all to promote Snickers’ new bars with hazelnuts and almonds.

Snickers is also setting up shop at the SouthBites Trailer Park from Saturday, March 11 through Monday, March 13, where she will serve up those Snickers-stuffed churros, too.
