These are absolutely delicious and not that difficult to make.homemade-snickers-bars

    This is one candy bar that seemed to be the right combination of everything I craved in a candy bar. Now I can make them myself!

    Let’s get started!

    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips for the bottom layer of the Snickers Bar
    • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter to be mixed with the chocolate chips for the bottom layer of the Snickers Bar
    • 7 ounces marshmallow cream
    • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 1-1/2 cups confectioners powdered sugar
    • 1 cup unsalted peanuts
    • 11 ounces of caramels
    • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
    • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips for the top layer of the Snickers Bar
    • 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter to be mixed with the chocolate chips for the top layer of the Snickers Bar

    Directions:

    1. Line an 11 x 7-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
    2. Place the chocolate chips with 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter in a microwavable bowl. Set in the microwave for about a minute. Stir until the peanut butter and chocolate chips are combined and smooth. If necessary, microwave for a few more seconds.
    3. Pour the melted chocolate/peanut butter mixture in the prepared pan. Spread evenly and put in the freezer for 2 to 3 minutes to harden.
    4. In a clean bowl, you’re going to put in the marshmallow cream, 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter and the powdered sugar.
    5. Using a wooden spoon or spatula stir until it forms a soft doughy consistency.
    6. Remove the “dough” and press it with your fingers on top of the chocolate layer in the pan that should have hardened in the freezer.
    7. Sprinkle the peanuts on top and gently press them in the doughy layer.
    8. In a small saucepan add the caramels and heavy cream. Cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly until the caramels have melted. Then pour it into the pan over the peanuts layer in the pan. Spread it evenly with the back of a spoon.
    9. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until set.
    10. In a microwavable bowl, you’re going to melt a cup of chocolate chips and the 3 tablespoons of peanut butter as you did for the bottom layer. (See Step 2)
    11. Pour the melted chocolate and peanut butter over the caramel layer and spread evenly.
    12. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

    When you’re ready to serve, cut into bars with a sharp knife. This will be a delicious treat and surprise for your family and friends.
