Homemade Snickers

What could be a better time to try a homemade dessert than when a piece of home is heading my way?! With my mom and aunt en route to Germany today, I see no better way to celebrate than with a melt in your mouth no-bake copycat recipe!

  • Bottom Layer
    • 1 1/4 c. milk chocolate chips
    • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  •  Nougat Layer
    • 1/4 c. unsalted butter
    • 1 c. granulated sugar
    • 1/4 c. evaporated milk
    • 1 1/2 c. marshmallow fluff
    • 1/4 c. peanut butter
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 c. salted peanuts coarsely chopped
  • Caramel Layer
    • 1-14 oz. bag caramels
    • 1/2 c. milk
  • Top Layer
    • 1 1/4 c. milk chocolate chips
    • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • Top & Bottom Layer
    • Melt chips and peanut butter together. Pour into 9x13 pan, spreading evenly, let cool and harden completely.
  • Nougat Layer
    • Melt butter in saucepan on medium heat, add in sugar and milk stirring until dissolved and bring to boil. Let cook 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add in fluff, peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Turn off heat and fold in peanuts. Pour over bottom layer. Let cool completely. 
  • Caramel Layer
    • Combine ingredients in saucepan over low heat. Let melt stirring frequently until smooth (about 10 minutes) pour over nougat layer. Let cool completely.
Helpful hints: Thoroughly grease the 9x13 pan. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving. You can keep it at room temperature if you'd like, but they are super gooey. I left mine in the fridge over night and it was very easy to cut into. Hope you enjoy!
