Homemade Snickers bars

Oooooooooh goodness. If you are on a diet or avoiding sweets for some crazy reason, stop reading now. This recipe for homemade Snickers bars is delicious, and addicting. I could probably eat an entire 9 x 13 pan of them by myself. They are almost spot on to the real candy bar, and are pretty effortless to make. A little melting here, stirring there, pouring, and viola! You’re done.

These do take a little bit of time to finish, as each layer requires that you let it cool and set before putting the next layer on top. Well worth the wait though. Just remember that 🙂 I brought these to a bible study, and they were quickly gobbled up, with everybody asking for the recipe. You will not be disappointed by this recipe!

Homemade Snickers Bars

Recipe from How Sweet It Is

Bottom Chocolate Layer

1/1/4 c. milk chocolate chips

1/4 c. peanut butter

Thoroughly grease your pan, or line with parchment paper. Melt ingredients in a sauce pan or microwave, then pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.








Nougat Layer

1/4 c. unsalted butter

1 c. granulated sugar

1/4 c. evaporated milk

1/1/2 c. marshmallow fluff

1/4 c. peanut butter

1/1/2 c. lightly salted peanuts, roughly chopped

1 tsp vanilla extract

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in sugar and milk, stirring until dissolved and bring to a boil. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in fluff, peanut butter, and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Turn off heat, and  gently stir in peanuts, then pour over chocolate layer. Cool completely.








Caramel Layer

1- 14 oz bag caramels

1/4 c. whipping cream

Combine ingredients in a sauce pan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Pour over nougat layer and cool completely.








Chocolate Layer

1/1/2 c. milk chocolate chips

1/4 c. peanut butter

Melt ingredients together in a saucepan or microwave, and pour over caramel layer. Cool completely.

Refrigerate at least one hour before serving, then cut as desired.








*I kept mine in the fridge, as they tend to melt, and ooze out caramel, making them a little messy*

    I think you are completely evil for making these and showing just how simple they really are. My family is…well, screwed.
