Homemade Snickers Bars

Homemade Snickers from completelydelicious.com [3]

This last week I finally hit my pre-pregnancy weight goal. Hooray! Only took me 2 years.

To celebrate I made these insane homemade snickers bars from How Sweet It Is [4] and then ate the whole pan. Maybe you’ve seen this recipe dancing around on Pinterest [5]? It’s been on my to-do list for months and I finally couldn’t hold out any longer. You probably shouldn’t either.

The recipe is quite simple, but there are several steps and you’ll be left with more than a few sticky dishes. But it’s totally worth it, I dare say these are better than the real thing!

Homemade Snickers Bars

The classic candy bar, but homemade!

Ingredients

Bottom chocolate layer:

  • 1 ¼ cups milk chocolate chips (213 grams)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (68 grams)

Nougat layer:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter (55 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk (60 ml)
  • 1 ½ cups marshmallow fluff (128 grams)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (68 grams)
  • 1 ½ cup salted peanuts , roughly chopped (215 grams)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Caramel layer:

  • 14 ounce bag vanilla caramels (400 grams)
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream (60 ml)

Top chocolate layer:

  • 1 ¼ cups milk chocolate chips (213 grams)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (68 grams)

Instructions

Chocolate bottom layer:

  • Thoroughly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Melt ingredients together in a saucepan or microwave, then pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.

Nougat layer:

  • 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. Let cool completely.

Caramel layer:

  • Combine caramels and cream in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth – this took about 10 minutes for me. Pour over nougat layer and let cool completely.

Top chocolate layer:

  • Melt ingredients together in a saucepan or microwave, then pour over caramel and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving, then cut as desired. These can stay at room temperature, but they do get gooey. I like them refrigerated best!
