Homemade Snickers Bars #snickers #bars #dessert #homemade #tableforsevenblog #snickerscandy

This is one of the recipes where you say “why isn’t this more difficult to make?”

Because, you know, if it is too difficult, you won’t be making it all the time. These homemade snickers bars are real easy, therefore, you will want to make them all the time.

That could be a bit dangerous.

Here are your layers:

  • Bottom: Chocolate and peanut butter.
  • Next: Your nougat layer.
  • Then: Caramel
  • Finally: More chocolate and peanut butter.

They are crazy, insane good.

These are very easy to make, but, take a little bit of time. You do have to wait for each layer to melt and cool. Plus,you have to wait an entire hour to eat them.

I know, an eternity. 😲

They are definitely going to be a special occasion dessert around our house. I have eaten entirely too many of them and actually stashed some in the freezer to avoid eating the whole entire pan in two days time.

Give them a try and just try to eat just one..I dare you!

Thanks @WWW! Glad your were able to be resourceful and still enjoyed them :)The only reason I can think of is that it was cooked too slow or too fast. So sorry..hope next time they work out for you :)

I want to clarify that the flavor of this recipe is AMAZING! You will not be disappointed. I must have done something wrong when I made it because even after 12 hours it was still goopy. The next day I turned my disaster into something very nice. I plopped the blob in a large sauce pan, turned it on low and melted it all together, poured it in a parchment paper lined pan and it came out beautifully as a "fudge." The chocolate chips help keep it firm. I am very pleased. If I ever make this again I will just toss it all together and not worry about layers. Next time I will use salted peanuts instead of lightly salted ones. It is rather sweet and I think having that saltiness will make it even better.

Funny because my nougat is the part that stayed soft and gooey (not exactly runny) making cutting it difficult and the pieces staying apart after cutting impossible.
