Homemade Snickers recipe & gift idea

You guys are in for a real treat today! I’m sharing the most delicious recipe for Homemade Snickers. This recipe is simply AMAZING! I’m not going to tell you how many I ate. ;)

These bad boys have now passed up my favorite no-bake dessert: Homemade Reeses. So what makes these homemade snickers my favorite? Well it combines my two favorite food groups… caramel and chocolate! Then just imagine the most delicious nougat filling which combines butter, sugar, marshmallow fluff AND peanut butter. Seriously. Can’t get enough!

The best part about these Homemade Snickers is they are super easy to make. Don’t let all those layers scare you. It takes a little bit of patience waiting for the layers to harden, but seriously… SOO worth the wait! Try this recipe, you will thank me later!

Once the bars have cooled, you can literally pull the whole thing out of the pan. Then slowly pull the foil off the sides and ooo and ahh at the delicious caramel.
