Homemade Snickers Bars

Snickers bars have long played second fiddle to my first true love: Reese’s peanut butter cups. It’s not their fault, really. Being a peanut butter-addicted kid, I always went for the treat with the highest peanut butter ratio. However, as I got older, I started to have a little affair with Snickers bars. I loved the combination of nougat, caramel, and peanuts… not to mention it was all covered in chocolate! I supposed I didn’t have to choose a favorite, did I? (Okay, if I did, I would still choose peanut butter cups, but really, I love them both!). Last year I realized how amazing homemade peanut butter cups were (aren’t most things better homemade, anyway?!), so when I saw a homemade version of Snickers on Jessica’s site earlier this year, I knew it was only a matter of time before my kitchen (and my shirt, arms, and hair) was splattered with nougat, caramel, and melted chocolate. Turns out, these taste exactly like a Snickers bar. Let me emphasize exactly because truly, these are a spot-on recreation. Only more delicious. And sinfully addictive.

These bars have multiple steps that might make them appear a tad overwhelming or intimidating, but have no fear! Each one takes less than 10 minutes and is pretty much foolproof.

Bottom chocolate layer. Nougat layer + chopped peanuts. Caramel layer. Top chocolate layer. Done!

Honestly, the hardest part about making these is once they are done, not eating more than five at any given point in time. I said five. Because I believe that it is impossible to eat less than five. They are dangerous and wonderful. Just like that senior your mom didn’t want you to date when you were a freshman. I guarantee your mom would approve of these. Make these, and share some with mom, or dad. (And maybe apologize for any headaches you caused during your teenage years.)

P.S. Does anyone else get as big a kick out of this Snickers commercial as I do?? “Steve was delicious!” (Although I am a sucker for any type of animal in a commercial!)

Homemade Snickers Bars

Yield: 32 bars

Prep Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Bottom Chocolate Layer:
1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
¼ cup creamy peanut butter

For the Nougat Layer:
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup evaporated milk
1½ cups marshmallow fluff
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
1½ cups salted peanuts, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Caramel Layer:
14 ounces caramels, unwrapped
¼ cup heavy cream

For the Top Chocolate Layer:
1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
¼ cup creamy peanut butter

Directions:

1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Line with parchment paper, then grease the parchment paper; set aside.

2. Make the Bottom Chocolate Layer: Melt together the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave on 50% power until completely smooth and melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Pour into the prepared baking dish and, using a spatula, smooth into an even layer. Refrigerate until completely cool and hard, about 30 minutes.

3. Make the Nougat Layer: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar and evaporated milk, stirring until dissolved, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pan from heat and add the marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and vanilla extract, stirring until completely smooth. Fold in the peanuts, then pour over the bottom chocolate layer. Again, refrigerate until completely cool, about 30 minutes.

4. Make the Caramel Layer: Combine the caramels and the heavy cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Once completely melted, cook for an additional 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour the caramel over the nougat layer. Refrigerate until completely cool, about 30 minutes.

5. Make the Top Chocolate Layer: Melt together the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave on 50% power until completely smooth and melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Pour over the caramel layer and, using a spatula, smooth into an even layer. Refrigerate until completely cool and set, 30 to 60 minutes.

6. Using the parchment liner, remove the bars from the pan and cut into 32 pieces. You can store these in the refrigerator or at room temperature. I find the filling to be the best consistency at room temperature, but the chocolate can get a little melty depending on how warm your house is. If your house runs warm (higher than 72 or so) you might want to keep them in the fridge and then take them out an hour or two before you want to serve them.

    I saw this on how sweet but didn’t bookmark it because my daughter was still having peanut issues so I was avoiding them. Now that she is doing fine with peanuts I think I will have to try this. I used to eat two snickers every day. One for breakfast and one for lunch.

    These look delicious, I can’t wait to try them! A question: we’re lactose intolerant, so I’m always looking for ways to adapt recipes. I can switch the milk chocolate chips for Ghiardelli semisweet chips, and the butter for Blue Bonnet light margarine since the amount is small; any suggestions for making the caramel without heavy cream? Maybe coconut milk?

      Hi Lori, I actually made a couple of changes to the recipe, which might seem insignificant but really made a huge difference for me. The first go I had at both the nougat and the caramel were bombs – the nougat ended up rock-hard and the caramel never set up. I altered the cooking temperature and time for both and got the result that worked for me, which I have reflected in the recipe I wrote above. Jessica’s recipe, as written, wouldn’t be an accurate representation of how I went about making it and the results that I had.

The blogger omitted the “reduce heat to low…remove from heat” step, which is very essential! Round one of the nougat was a nasty burned mess. Then I remembered your recent post and came on here – Nougat Round 2 was perfect! Can’t wait to taste these…

      Hi Cindra, So happy to hear this was a hit and raised some good money! I’m wondering if maybe the caramel layer got too hard before you poured the chocolate on, and so the layers didn’t fuse so much as the chocolate just laid on top. Next time, try pouring the chocolate on while the caramel is still a little soft (but semi-set). I hope that helps!

    Hello! This recipe looks absolutely amazing! I live all the way in New Zealand, not sure what the ‘caramels’ are, maybe a candy we don’t have here? Do you know if there is a caramel sauce that will work just as well or do you have some brand names I could look out for for this caramel? We have a couple of America shops here (that I LOVE) so maybe they’re there!

    Can your homemade salted caramel be used for the caramel in this recipe which is from melted candies? I am not sure of the salted caramel will harden up enough for this or if it is more an icecream sauce.

      Hi Joli, The caramel and chocolate get a little soft at room temperature, but I’d say you could leave them out for 6 to 8 hours, as long as the house isn’t too terribly warm. If it’s warmer than 72 degrees, I wouldn’t leave them out for more than an hour or two.

    I made this this morning. Everything was perfect but the caramel layer never fully hardened. I used jarred caramel sauce, instead of melting candies, so not sure if I had to cook it more or less to thicken. I just put it in the freezer to see if it will harden up. Did this ever happen to you? It tastes amazing anyway :)

    Reply

    • Michelle on January 5th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

      Hi Brian, I’m not sure what effect cooking already made caramel sauce would have on the final product. My guess is that it will stay pretty soft. By keeping the bars refrigerated, it might keep the caramel hard enough so as not to ooze.

      Reply

      • Brian on January 7th, 2013 at 11:33 am

        I wouldn’t have cooked the caramel but I had to mix in the evap. milk, so I had to cook it a little bit. Probably cooked it too long as the consistency is pretty thick in the jar. In any event, I ended up freezing the squares and everything hardened up nicely with a little bit of ooze in the middle. I think that’s the way to go :)

    Hi these look delish and i really want to make them but being from Australia and our ingredients being different i was wondering if the caramels to make the caramel layer are a soft or hard texture just so i can try and find something similar? Also i know that our cup measures are different as well, are you able to tell me what a cup measure is in gms. Thank you.

      Hi Erin, You want to use soft caramels. As for the cup conversion, unfortunately there is no one answer – cups here are by and large a volume measurement, and every single ingredients would have a different conversion based on their weight. I would check out King Arthur Flour’s website, as they have some specific conversions for actual ingredients. Search for “master weight chart”.

    These look AMAZING!! How long do they last in the fridge (as if!)? Can they go in the freezer? Thanks!

      Hi Andrea, Probably up to a week. You could freeze them, but you’ll want to thaw them before eating as the nougat and caramel layers will likely get very hard.

        Definitely. Thanks!
        One more thing… Is there any possible substitute for evaporated milk if I want to make them dairy-free? Thanks again!

          Hi Andrea, Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a non-dairy substitute for the evaporated milk.

    Hi! Is there something I can use to substitute for marshmallow fluff? Or is it possible to not use it at all since I can’t seem to find it here in the Philippines :(

    Hi Michelle! I’m just wondering how far in advance I can make these and how to properly store them. I am absolutely loving your website and all the recipes on them. Thanks in advance! Alicia :)

      Hi Alicia, Thank you! You can definitely make these at least a few days in advance and store them in the refrigerator. I would take them out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving.

    Can I bake this in a glass 9×13 casserole dish instead of a metal pan? Don’t really want to buy another baking pan :/

      Hi Whitney, I think you should be able to do that without a problem. Enjoy!

    I made these for my son’s birthday party and everyone loved them! They tasted exactly like Snickers.. It was amazing! The only problem I ran into was once I cut the bars, the caramel ran and made the top chocolate square slide off. Any ideas why this may have happened Michelle or what I could do to thicken the caramel sauce so it doesn’t run so much? I chilled the bars before cutting and it still happened sadly. Any ideas or suggestions would be wonderful as I know I will be making them again! Thanks in advance, Alicia!

      Hi Alicia, You could try cooking your caramel sauce a little longer so that it thickens up more. I’m so glad you enjoyed them!

    Thanks for this recipe! I was trying to find some new ideas for Xmas treats for co-workers and this was just what I needed. Love that it’s super easy and super yummy! I used Vosges milk chocolate and Godiva caramels to make a “high end Snickers”. I will probably NEVER buy a Snickers again!

    I made these today and they are amazing! My only negative is after they cooled, I cut them up, put them into a container and in the fridge. The caramel started to ooze out and some of the tops slid off. It doesn’t affect the taste, just makes them less pretty!

      Did you cook them for the extra 4 minutes after they melted?

    Second attempt and it was absolutely delicious. First attempt failed because we can’t get Kraft Caramels in Australia, so had to use Nestle tinned caramel, which was too soft, so it was too soft and was very difficult to eat. But, found a place in Melbourne, Australia (USA Foods) that sold the Kraft Caramels and bought a couple of bags, and this time it worked wonderfully.
    Thank you for the recipe.
    Have you thought of making Homemade Take 5 bars? That, we can’t get in Australia anywhere and can’t even order it through Amazon. So, we have to wait for another couple of years before we go back to the US to load up on Take 5s. So, would be great if you can experiment as most of your recipes are superb!

    i made twice and seem to have had the same issue both times, but the nougat layer seems to melt and run out of the snickers when i cut them,

    These are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Knew I just had to make them as soon as I saw the recipe. I had just made these PB& Caramel cookie bars (http://chelseasmessyapron.com/chocolate-caramel-cookie-bars/) and they ttly messed up. The chocolate layer on top was too hard and just cracked for the most part (could not slice it) and the caramel was way too gooey and did not stay firm. at the end I had to wrap each piece in parchment paper and then in its own bag cause it was one mess. For these, I see that you cooked the caramel 4 extra minutes – and indeed, my caramel came out PERFECT, and also I added some coconut oil to the chocolate layer, and it too sliced very nicely. I dont know if this was necc. but just in case I didnt want to take any chances. most amazing recipe EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
