Pinned It; Made It #3

On this weeks Pinned it; Made it:  homemade Snickers! 

This is from one of my oldest pins. I’ve been making these snickers for years. I’m  actually surprised that I haven’t blogged about making these before. They are super easy to make and taste better than the store bought. I make them for a lot of get-togethers. They get eaten fast! 

To make the homemade snickers start with the bottom layer and melt 1 1/4 cup milk chocolate with 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter. Pour the mixture into a well buttered 9×13 sheet pan. Let layer freeze before moving to the next layer. 

For the caramel layer I used almost two 11 oz bags of caramel and 1/4 cup half and half. Heavy cream would work just fine. I just didn’t have any in the house. 

Unwrapping each piece of caramel is kind of a bummer but it is easier than making your own. I have made my own and the chocolate seems to stick better to the store bought caramel. 

Combine together in a saucepan. Melt over low heat. Pour over the frozen chocolate layer. Allow to fully freeze before moving onto the next layer. 

The nuget layer is up next. 

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat add 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup evaporated milk. Bring to a boil. Add in 1 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff, 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter and 1 tsp vanilla. I usually just add in the entire jar of fluff (7oz). I hate getting the measuring cup all sticky from the fluff. Turn of the heat and remove from the burner. Fold in 1 1/2 cup chopped peanuts. I’ve been using the honey roasted ones. Pour over the frozen caramel layer. Allow to freeze completely before moving onto the last layer. 

The last layer is the final chocolate peanut butter mixture. Again melt 1 1/4 milk chocolate with 1/4 creamy peanut butter. Pour over the frozen nuget layer. I’ve poured this chocolate layer over the nuget layer before the nuget layer was frozen. It gets weird and soupy. The nuget layer never really set after that. So allow everything to fully freeze before moving on! Once that last layer is frozen I move the tray to the refrigerator to let the snickers soften up before cutting into them. They get soft and gooey if left out which is yummy but a total disaster during a heat wave. This pin is a total win. I’m kinda upset I’m all out of them.

    Oh WOW! If I wasn’t so full with supper I’d be dashing to the cupboard to see if I had the ingredients!
