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
For the Bottom Chocolate Layer:
- 1¼ cups (225 g) milk chocolate chips
- ¼ cup (64.5 g) creamy peanut butter
For the Nougat Layer:
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
- ¼ cup (64 ml) evaporated milk
- 1½ cups (190.5 g) marshmallow fluff
- ¼ cup (64.5 g) creamy peanut butter
- 1½ cups (219 g) salted peanuts, roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Caramel Layer:
- 14 ounces (396.89 g) caramels, unwrapped
- ¼ cup (59.5 ml) heavy cream
For the Top Chocolate Layer:
- 1¼ cups (225 g) milk chocolate chips
- ¼ cup (64.5 g) creamy peanut butter
- Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Line with parchment paper, then grease the parchment paper; set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Your home is valueble for me. Thanks!…
I am no longer sure the place you are getting your information, but great topic. I must spend some time finding out much more or working out more. Thanks for great information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
certainly like your website however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll certainly come again again.
Almost all of whatever you claim happens to be supprisingly legitimate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nevertheless there is actually one particular position I am not too cozy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual main theme of your issue, allow me see just what all the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.
Valuable information. Lucky me I found your website by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
Good post. I study one thing more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It would at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and practice slightly one thing from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
very good put up, i certainly love this web site, keep on it
Along with almost everything which appears to be building throughout this area, a significant percentage of perspectives are generally rather stimulating. However, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to everybody that your remarks are generally not completely validated and in reality you are generally your self not really totally convinced of the argument. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.
I would like to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from this predicament. As a result of looking out throughout the internet and seeing concepts which are not productive, I assumed my life was well over. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you’ve resolved through your good site is a critical case, as well as ones which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not discovered the blog. That training and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was important. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a thing like this. I’m able to now relish my future. Thanks so much for your expert and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to refer your web page to anyone who should receive counselling about this area.
Do you use dry roasted peanuts?
Made it…husband, son and workersLoved! Had a few differences based on what was in storage very minor..husand had great words beyond GREAT!!
So I usually consider your recipes a sure bet and this one is close but not quite there. The nougat layer just doesn’t work for me. I am an avid baker and I followed your recipe to a T and found it to be grainy….I am sure because of the granulated sugar. After poking around I have found that others are using powdered sugar which should alleviate this issue.
Wondering if I can make the nougat filling without the peanut butter? What do you think I could sub in there instead? More butter and fluff? Thanks :)
Hi Candy, It would really alter the texture. Is there a reason you don’t want to use it? If it’s an allergy issue, I would recommend substitute almond butter or sunbutter.
I have made these so many times for the guys at work and they love them!
Would you recommend using natural peanut or something more like Jiff?
Hi Laura, Definitely something like JIF, natural peanut butter would be too oily. Enjoy!
just found this and am so happy that you “cracked the code” to deconstruct snickers! Thank you for this, looks exactly how I remember them, interesting set of ingredients, would never have imagined marshmallow fluff was in these
My husband told me to pin this recipe. Snickers are his favorite!
I tried making these yesterday, and they are delicious! My nougat came out a little too soft, even though I cooked it a minute longer than the recipe suggested. I think I will cook it even longer next time to try and get a slightly firmer nougat. I also use bittersweet chocolate instead of regular, and made my own caramel because I don’t like the taste of Kraft caramels. That was a good call. I brought them to work today and everyone is going nuts (no pun intended).
I kind of wonder if I would be able to cut the nougat/peanut/caramel into squares and then dip them in chocolate instead of spreading it on the top and bottom. Have you ever tried that?
Hi Kay, So happy to hear these were a hit! I’ve never done the dipping in chocolate, but it would definitely be more like a true candy bar! More work though ;-)
Absolutely LOVED these. I made them for an application party and everyone had to wash their hands first because they kept going back for more! If you are thinking about making them, do it! They were worth the trip to the store for those two ingredients you may not have on hand and so much better than the originals. YUM!
Homemade snickers bars? More like homemade poop turds
i hope your kids get diarrhea and die
Why do there have to be nasty people everywhere. Karma can bite you when you least expect it. Try being a nice person, it will actually make you feel good
A young lady at work made these for our employees and let me tell you, they were a hit! They were gone so fast, and every one was raving about them. I fell in love with them, I could not get over the taste of them, they are even better than the real thing, snickers that is!! I WILL be serving these for Christmas, you can bet on that.. They are sooooo addictive, so get ready!! ha!
So I know this is an old recipe, but have you thought about updating it with your delicious salted caramel recipe instead of packaged caramels? I realized the ‘salted’ bit might not make it perfect, but it’s SUUUUCCCCHHH good caramel!!
Hi Claire, Great suggestion, thank you!
Hi! If I make your salted caramel recipe (w/ less salt), can I use that to substitute for the packaged caramels in this recipe and how much would I use? Or just stick to the caramels/heavy cream? Thanks!
…but is there really peanut butter in the real Snickers bar chocolate coating? I had never noticed that.
I made these as Christmas gifts and everyone went nuts for them. They are a bit time-consuming as you have to wait for each layer to set up, but well worth it. Not too labor intensive and freaking good!
Hi, I don’t have access to store-bought caramels. any recipe i can make? thanks!
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I dont kno how, but wish i could send you pics!!!!!!!!
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,
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!
Hi Kaytlen, I did a Take 5 pie a few years ago! https://www.browneyedbaker.com/2012/03/09/take-5-candy-bar-pie/
Yes, I know. I’ve tried that as well, but I still didn’t think it is as close to the Take 5 bar as I’d like. Thanks anyway.
Can’t wait to try these – I LOVE snicker bars!!
Can homemade marshmallow fluff replaceable for store bought one ?
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?
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!
Wonderful Homemade Snickers recipe!
I have made several recipes from your blog and have not been disappointed!
hey there! I stumbled upon this recipe and i mean of course i had to try it, first of all you are right, they are completely addictive and every person that ate one, was amazed and wanted more!!!! I followed the recipe word by word… i am a chocolatier and i took a couple for my boss, he was so so impressed with the nougat layer, and was totally impressed by me so it was awesome! Anyway, just wanted to thank you for posting this… it truly is an amazing recipe! sooo yummy!
Hello! I just wanted to say that a person with this blog uses your photo without having noted from where it was taken over.
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!
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!
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.
By the way, I absolutely love your website! It’s one of my go-to sites when I bake. :D
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 Edma, You can make your own marshmallow creme and substitute that for the marshmallow fluff. This is a good recipe: http://www.cookingclassy.com/2013/02/homemade-marshmallow-creme/. Enjoy! :)
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.
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 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 were fabulous. I used my own caramel sauce however and it didn’t harden, so the next time, I’m going to try a different caramel sauce so they aren’t so messy. My stepdaughter though they were best dessert I’ve made so far. ;)
I made these and for Heavens sakes – they are awesome!! Everything turned out perfectly. AND perfectly yummy. Thank you for the recipe.
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 :)
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.
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 :)
Thank you for sharing this. I can’t wait to try it out!
Hello! I’m planning on making these delicious looking snicker’s bars for my dad for a Christmas present. Any idea how long they should last at room temperature?
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.
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.
I haven’t used it before, but you could give it a try! It will set up stiff, but not rock hard.
These look amazing! Can’t wait to make for someone for Christmas…
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!
Hi Lydia, We have “soft caramel candies” here that can be melted down – they are sold my multiple companies, including Kraft. You could certainly use homemade or store-bought caramel sauce as well!
I made these earlier in the week, and they were AMAZING!! Everyone LOVED them!! I will definitely be making these again!! Maybe for a Steelers game :)
my 6-year-old son just began liking snickers and this is one terrific way of cutting down on those preservatives. thanks so much for this!!!!
I made these last week and they were fantastic. Everyone that tried them thought so too including my snickers loving husband. Thanks for another great recipe.
WOW. i made these over the course of last night and this morning and WOW, they are good. thank you so much for sharing your “take”/changes of this recipe and posting it. thanks to your instructions, the whole thing worked perfectly – no rock hard nougat or anything! yay! now i just need to get these to my daughter’s school before i eat the whole pan.
I made these about a week ago they were great. I have request for more. Thanks for the recipe
I made this wonderful dessert for our school’s dessert auction and they sold for $60 and the person who bought them just ranted and raved about how delicious they were. I do have a question though….I had an issue with the top layer of chocolate popping off of the caramel….did I do something wrong? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated since I definitely plan on making them again!
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!
Great idea…..I will definitely try that the next time I make it….that should solve the problem totally. Thanks for the reply! By the way, I love getting your posts every day….they are great!
WOW! Trying these tomorrow!
Marshmallow? Uh oh, I always thought Snickers were vegetarian. Darn it!
Hi Connie, I do not know if the store-bought Snickers bars contain marshmallows or not in their nougat filing, you would need to check their ingredient list. It is used here to re-create the flavor and texture of the nougat.
These look so good. I am a huge fan of Snickers. I love me some PB Cups too.
these were delightful! i used semi sweet chips to make it not quite as sweet and crunchy peanut butter…they were very easy to make & a delight to eat! use parchment paper as it makes it much easier to remove from the pan :) I also put them in the freezer to solidify the layers rather than the fridge and it worked great. Stores wonderfully in the freezer as well! Thanks!
I like the “exactly” part. I can’t wait to try them!
I have made these and they are AMAZING!!!! They can get sloppy if left out so we put them in the freezer – perfect! One of our all time favorites now! With a house full of teenagers…this was a winning treat!
Oh my goodness, these look incredible! On skiing trips my husband always tucks a Snickers bar into his jacket to munch on the chair lift before a run. These bars look like a super yummy and fun alternative to our old Snicker’s bar chair-lift snack. It looks like it’s time for a new tradition, thanks for this post!
My nougat layer just went into the fridge, and I just had to come on here and say THANK YOU for posting this recipe! I found the recipe awhile back on another blog, one I had never read before. 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 Tara, You are welcome! I actually had the exact same problem the first time I made it – the nougat turned into a brick! So I altered the cooking temperature and time and it turned out wonderfully the second go round. I’m glad it helped you too!
made this today. AMAZING! had to call some friends nearby to take some so I dont eat it all.
Just made these and followed the directions exactly – they were fantastic! I did cut them into smaller pieces in an effort to try and behave myself!
Those look way better than a commercially made Snicker’s bars!
My dad’s favorite candy is a Snicker’s (then a Babe Ruth, but I don’t see a huge difference between the two) so this would surely be great for him!
You had me at Snickers! Will make this TODAY!
These look too good to be true!!! I love snickers!!!
Okay – how cool are you? I love snickers, but like you – my first love is the peanut butter cup (and the peanut butter M&Ms!)
Cool. Looks delish! For someone from Australia what is marshmellow fluff?
I really want to make these but don’t know what it is. Thanks :-)
Hi Tammy, Someone on the BEB Facebook page mentioned that there are some shops in Australia that sell American candy, and she has found it there. If you don’t have any luck, there are recipes online for making your own – I would suggest Googling and see what works with the ingredients you have available.
First Jessica, now you. It’s a more elaborate recipe than I usually try but I’m being worn down fast by these delicious pictures.
oh wow! It looks amazing, I love snickers and this looks just like them, I think even better!
I love all the candy and ice cream inspiration lately! These look amazing and I don’t think there’s any way I can make them or I’ll make myself sick. Zero willpower.
Oooh – you got me! I think Snickers are my all-time favorite candy bar, and the thought of replecating that magical taste at home is just blowing my mind. I’ll definitely have to give this a try! Thanks for sharing. :)
Oh my god…I think I just gained a few pounds looking at this! I’m a HUGGGEEEE Snickers fan, and I can’t wait to try this out!! Thanks a bunch :0)
Love this. I feel like your first paragraph could have been written by me because that’s exactly how I feel about Reese’s and Snickers! :-) Thanks for posting!
Yes!! I LOVE that commercial! One of my favorites. ;) Love your blog too!! I don’t think I have ever commented but I have made several of your recipes and have always been pleased. Love your stories too!! :)
Oh my, they look so yummy. Lent needs to hurry up and be over so I can devour chocolate again.
I can’t resist these either. They are perfectly sinful!
Love this recipe, should make them asap!
Your homemade snickers seems to beat store bought for sure – delicious recipe filled with good ingredients :D

I can’t wait to try these! Snickers are my boyfriends favorite and I know he’ll go crazy for these. Love your recipes and your site!
I’ve loved seeing this pop up on Pinterest for the last several weeks. Might be nice for Jessica if you just linked to her recipe, rather than put the recipe on your site too, no?
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.
These look soooo good! I can’t wait to make them.
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 Ginger, Yes, you could definitely use coconut milk.
Amazing! I love how you included chocolate on the bottom as well… lovely, delicious touch!
Yum! My son loves Snicker’s, these would be a HUGE hit with him!
YUM – saw these on howsweeteats website and have been wanting to make them ever since. Love the pictures!
These look SO yummy! And the fact that they are homemade makes them a little healthier, right? Haha!
Oh my. These look divine. Your photos are making my mouth water! ;) My favorite way to eat Snickers are frozen… might have to whip up a batch to freeze. ;)
These look fantastic. I’m going to try them this weekend. My husband will love them!
I love the “Steve was delicious” commerical! I will admit that my favorite commerical right now is the M&M commerical where they are at a party and everyone thinks the brown one is naked and the red one takes off his shell and starts dancing…I crack up every time!
I have made this recipe before, and we enjoyed it. However, we noticed that the nougat was a tad grainy; did you experience that as well?
Hi Sara, I didn’t, it was nice and chewy, no graininess that I noticed.
These look so yummy! Can’t wait to try the recipe!
Love copycat recipes! I’m positive I couldn’t be trusted around these.
I love Jessica’s Homemade Snickers Bars. I pinned these when she posted her recipe! She comes up with the best recipes!
These look so freaking yummy! These are lovely.
I LOVE Snicker Bars and I bet homemade is even better then store bought! Great recipe, this is one for the books! I’m going to surprise Hubby and make these for him!!
Yay for pinning! And these look yummy, too!
These look fantastic! My husband’s favorite candy is snickers, so he would love these!
I love nougat! I always thought it would be hard to make but it looks easy and delicious! I’ll have to try that if not the whole snickers bar!
I agree. Snickers will always be second to my love of Reeses. Peanut butter, all the way.
Even though these look way more decadent than a normal snickers the nutrition facts and size are nearly identical.
I know which I would prefer :D
Oh YUM! I love copycats of packaged food – so very fun to make! I bet you could cut them lengthwise and dip them in chocolate for a realistic look (though they’re gorgeous just as you have them here!)
We just realized we could make homemade peanut butter cups, but I also REALLY love Snickers. I became obsessed when I was pregnant and still have a fondness for them. I love recreating things that I usually buy because it always tastes so much better! I’ll definitely have to make these ASAP.
These look amazing! I love snickers bars, who knew I could make them myself! (Did my waistline want to know that? Hmmm.)
I keep seeing this recipe on pinterest and saying I need to make it. Looks AMAZING!
I should NOT try to prepare these.. (because they look SO good and I really really like snickers..)
These look soooo much better than a regular Snickers. Every Snickers bar I’ve had in recent memory has been completely stale tasting, but I’m sure that making them homemade would solve that!
I wish I could take a bite out of these wirelessly….they look sooooo amazing.
I’ve been fiending to get in the kitchen and looking for recipes that don’t involve the use of an oven as mine broke down a few days ago… it is not coincidence that i came across this post! gonna try these! thank you, brown eyed baker :)
Ive seen these on Jessica’s blog, all over pinterest, and everywhere I turn, these have popped up but you are the first person I’ve seen who’s posted about recreating them. They look sooo good. Makes me want to get busy makin’ nougat!
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.
