How To Make Homemade Snickers 

  • Using a double boiler, combine 1 C chocolate chips, and the 3 tbsp peanut butter and melt until smooth.
  • Pour melted chocolate into the baking dish and smooth out. Place into the freezer while you make the nougat
  • In a medium bowl, combine the marshmallow fluff, 1/4 C peanut butter and powder sugar. Mix until combined
  • Using your hands, push down the nougat onto the first layer of chocolate.
  • Lightly push in the peanuts.

Nougat and peanuts

  • In the clean double boiler pot, melt the caramels and heavy whipping cream. Stir the caramel until fully melted
  • Pour over nougat

Caramel Layer

  • Place into the fridge for 20 minutes
  • After you wash the double boiler one last time, repeat the first step with the remaining 1 C chocolate chips and 3 tbsp peanut butter.
  • Pour melted chocolate over cooled caramel and place back into the fridge until hardened.

How To Store Homemade Snickers:

Homemade Snickers hold up best in the fridge allowing them to keep their shape. Room temperature will also work in a cooler environment that isn’t too warm which can lead to melting or becoming too soft.

Tips:

One option is to cut the bars into smaller rectangles and dipping the entire bar into the chocolate. This will look a bit more like the authentic Snickers candy bar.
