Homemade Snickers Bars


With two layers of chocolate, creamy nougat, peanuts, and plenty of caramel, these Homemade Snickers Bars taste just like the real candy bar – only better!

Every December, my sister-in-law Erin has a Baking Day.

She takes a day off work to bake and create sweet treats for Christmas. Cookies, candies, bars, you name it! And she does it by herself. She is totally 100% self-motivated, self-propelled, and committed.

It isn’t like one of those ladies-baking-as-a-cover-story-for-drinking-wine scenarios. Erin is legit, and she puts out an impressive amount of goodies.

Wistfully envious, 2,500 miles away, and a few months early, I’m getting started on my own Baking Day with these delicious Homemade Snickers Bars.

Two layers of semi-sweet chocolate (which I prefer over the milk chocolate in “real” Snickers bars) sandwiches marshmallowy nougat, crunch peanuts, and luscious caramel. And don’t worry, it’s all easy!

It’s easy because you use store-bought marshmallow cream and unwrap a bag of caramels. If you want to make marshmallow cream or caramel sauce from scratch, have at it!

Beyond that, you just have to melt chocolate and peanut butter together. In the microwave. You’ve got this!

And prepare to be impressed by your own Baking Day magic, because these are GREAT! You’ll love them, no question about it.
