How to Make Snickers Bars

There are quite a few steps because of the different layers. Definitely read through the entire recipe at least once before starting so you can make sure you have all of your ingredients and measurements ready to go.

  1. Line a deep pan with parchment paper leaving extra on the sides to be able to lift the final bar out of the pan.
  2. Place 1 cup of the chocolate chips and ¼ cup of the peanut butter into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds. Stir the mixture until smooth and pour evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the pan in the freezer.
  3. Prepare ¼ cup peanut butter and set aside. Place the butter, sugar, and ¼ cup of the evaporated milk in a small saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally as the butter melts. Once the mixture is boiling, stir constantly for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and stir in prepared peanut butter, vanilla, and the marshmallow cream. Remove the pan from the freezer, spread out the nougat layer, and then place the pan back in the freezer.
  5. In another microwave-safe bowl, add the caramels and ¼ cup evaporated milk. Microwave for 60 seconds, remove and stir. Microwave again at 30-second intervals until the mixture is nice and smooth.
  6. Remove pan from the freezer and top nougat layer with peanuts. Use your hands to gently press the peanuts into the nougat. Pour the melted caramel mixture over the top of the peanuts, spread it out, and return the pan to the freezer.
  7. In the same microwave-safe bowl you used for the first chocolate layer, add the remaining cup of chocolate chips and the last ¼ cup of peanut butter to the bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds. Remove mixture from microwave and stir until smooth. Take the pan out of the freezer and pour and smooth the last chocolate layer over the caramel.
  8. Refrigerator for at least 2 hours to let everything set.

Equipment

  • 9×13 or 8×10 deep pan/dish
  • 2 microwave-safe bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 7 oz marshmallow cream
  • cups salted peanuts
  • 1 bag caramels

Instructions

  • Line a pan with parchment paper leaving extra on the sides to be able to lift the final bar out of the pan (I used 8×10 so the layers were a little thicker). Also, make sure you have space in your freezer for the pan because it will be going in and out a few times throughout the process.

Bottom Chocolate Layer

  • Place 1 cup of the chocolate chips and ¼ cup of the peanut butter into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds (this should be enough, if not reheat at 20-second intervals). Stir the mixture until smooth and pour evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the pan in the freezer. Set the bowl aside as you will use it again for the top chocolate layer.

Nougat Layer

  • Prepare ¼ cup of the peanut butter and set aside. Place the butter, sugar and ¼ cup of the evaporated milk in a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Stir occasionally as the butter melts. Once the mixture is boiling, stir constantly for 5-6 minutes.

  • Immediately remove the pan from the heat and stir in the measured peanut butter, vanilla, and marshmallow cream until smooth. This mixture gets really thick and a little chunky, don't worry, it's fine. Just stir as much as you can. Remove the pan from the freezer, spread out the nougat layer and then place the pan back in the freezer.

Remove the mixture from the microwave and stir until smooth. Take the pan out of the freezer and pour and smooth the last chocolate layer over the caramel.
  • Put the pan in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to let everything set. Enjoy!
