Homemade Snickers Bars














**Homemade Snickers Bars adapted from Taste of Home recipe. Original recipe can be viewed here! **


Homemade Snickers Bars



1st Layer: Chocolate Peanut Butter

1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

Grease your 9x13 baking pan with butter. Melt ingredients together in the microwave, then pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Place pan into the fridge and allow to cool and harden.


2nd Layer: Nougat

1/4 cup  butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
7 ounce jar marshmallow fluff
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
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 fold in peanuts, then pour over bottom chocolate layer. Place into the fridge allow it to cool and set completely.


3rd Layer: Caramel:

1 14-ounce bag of caramels
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Pour over nougat layer and let cool completely in the fridge until set.


4th Layer: Chocolate Peanut Butter:

1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

Melt ingredients together in the microwave, then pour over caramel and spread until even. Allow the final layer to cool and harden in the fridge.

Keep in mind that this recipe takes some time because you have to allow each layer to cool and set before moving on to the next layer. Trust me, it is totally worth it! I stored my bars in the fridge. You may need to let them set out for a few minutes to soften before cutting. Enjoy!

  3. Yes, it surprisingly is easy to make, just takes some time to allow each layer to set in the fridge. I took me a few hours one evening to make this!
