It’s hard to imagine that you could improve upon the perfection that is a Snickers candy bar. However, these ooey-gooey Homemade Snickers Bars do just that!!
Homemade Snickers Bars
This recipe uses a “secret” ingredient to amp up the traditional chocolate and peanut flavor combo of Snickers.
OK, maybe it’s not that secret…it’s peanut butter!!
In my world, everything is better with peanut butter. At the height of my love affair with PB, I may or may not have eaten an entire jar every week. Don’t judge 😉
So of course there is TONS of rich, creamy peanut butter is mixed in every single layer of these thick, chewy, chocolatey, and caramel-y squares.

Kitchen Tools Used:
- 9 x 13″ baking dish
- parchment paper (just enough to come up over the sides of the dish)
- Non-slip mixing bowls
- Silicone spatula
- Double boiler
Using a double boiler, combine 1 cup of the chocolate chips with 3 tbsp peanut butter and melt until smooth. Wash double boiler after use.
LAYER 1: Melted chocolate (chill until hardened)
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the marshmallow fluff, 1/4 cup peanut butter and powdered sugar. Mix until a thick nougat forms.
LAYER 2: Nougat (press down with hands on top of hardened chocolate)
LAYER 3: Peanuts (Evenly distribute peanuts on top of the nougat and gently press the peanuts so they are “stuck” in place).
In the clean double boiler pot, melt the caramels and heavy whipping cream. Stir the caramel until fully melted.
LAYER 4: Caramel (Pour caramel over nougat and smooth with a spatula. Place into the fridge for 20 minutes, then wash your double boiler again).
In the clean double boiler, repeat the first step with the remaining chocolate chips and peanut butter.
LAYER 5: Chocolate (Spread the final layer of melted chocolate over cooled caramel and place back into the fridge until hardened).
Use a sharp knife to cut into squares.
