Homemade Snickers Bars

Remember when I told you I hated chocolate?  Yeah I was a weird and deprived child.  Snickers are what broke me of my hate for chocolate.  Now I can make them at home?  This spells trouble.

homemadesnickersbarsI started eating Snickers in high school.  But I would seriously peel the chocolate off and eat the caramel and nougat.  That is how much I hated chocolate but loved the inside of a Snickers.  By my senior year, I started to get lazy and would just eat the entire bar with the chocolate.  My love for Snickers goes waaaaaay back.  They have always been my #1 candybar.

My favorite part of a Snickers bar is the nougat.  It is so creamy and I love the peanuts inside.  Of course my second favorite part is the caramel.  But I am obsessed with caramel.  These Homemade Snickers Bars taste just like the real deal.  I couldn’t believe it!  They are absolutely fantastic.  These are another one of my favorite things from my blog that will be served on a silver platter when I die. 🙂

Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • Botton Chocolate Layer:
  • 1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • Nougat Layer:
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
  • 1½ cups marshmallow fluff
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1½ cups salted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Caramel Layer:
  • 14 ounce bag of caramels
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Top Chocolate Layer:
  • 1¼ cup milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Thoroughly grease a 9x13 pan. I lined it with heavy duty aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray. This way they just popped right out.
  2. For the bottom layer: Add chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe dish. Melt them together, stirring after every 30 seconds being careful not to let the chocolate burn. Spread the layer evenly in the bottom of your 9x13 pan. I put each layer in the fridge to let it completely harden. This will help speed up the process because each layer need to be completely cooled and set.
  3. For the nougat layer: Melt the butter over medium high heat in saucepan. Add the milk and sugar and bring mixture to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, whisking together occasionally. Add in marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and vanilla stirring until smooth. Take the saucepan off of the heat and fold in the peanuts. Pour over the bottom chocolate layer and spread evenly. Allow to cool completely.
  4. For the caramel layer: Melt caramels and heavy whipping cream in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour over the nougat layer and allow to cool completely.
  5. For the top chocolate layer: Melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave together stirring 30 seconds at a time until smooth. Pour over and spread evenly over the caramel. Cool bars completely in the fridge. Keep them in fridge until right before serving because the bars will soften. Enjoy!
