Chocolate, caramel, peanut…all together in one candy bar, what could be better? You might know this candy bar by the name Snickers®, but homemade takes it to a whole new level. And the bonus is, you know exactly what’s in it.
This is basically 2 layers of candy, peanut caramel and nougat, then each bar is dipped in velvety, luscious chocolate. Hello, delicious-ness!
Originally, Jurga had tasked me with bringing dessert to her Gr8 Dinner with a comedy theme. I was supposed to make a Snickers® pie. I thought it would be fun to try to make the candy bars. There are lots of variations on line, and I picked the one that looked like it would be closest to a real candy bar. I used Elizabeth LaBau’s recipe from The Spruce. The ingredients are below, the recipe is here.
I have made these a couple of times since and they are always a hit. Recently, for my son and daughter-in-law’s birthday dinner, these were the party favors!
