Olivia had a gathering at her home this weekend that I was fortunate enough to have attended.  At this gathering, she served these "out of this world" homemade snickers bars.  She found the recipe at  Olivia made two large pans of these heavenly confections, and the were consumed with great gusto.  Many inquiries were made about the recipe and Olivia's only negative comment about it was that it takes a long time to do all the layers.  Everyone agreed though that it is definitely worth the effort.  If you are taking these somewhere this summer to share, be sure to keep them refrigerated and cool before serving so you don't end up with an gooey mess.  Enjoy the decadent goodness!


  • Botton Chocolate Layer:
  • 1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • Nougat Layer:
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
  • 1½ cups marshmallow fluff
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1½ cups salted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Caramel Layer:
  • 14 ounce bag of caramels
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Top Chocolate Layer:
  • 1¼ cup milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  1. Thoroughly grease a 9×13 pan. I lined it with heavy duty aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray. This way they just popped right out.
  2. For the bottom layer: Add chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe dish. Melt them together, stirring after every 30 seconds being careful not to let the chocolate burn. Spread the layer evenly in the bottom of your 9×13 pan. I put each layer in the fridge to let it completely harden. This will help speed up the process because each layer need to be completely cooled and set.
  3. For the nougat layer: Melt the butter over medium high heat in saucepan. Add the milk and sugar and bring mixture to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, whisking together occasionally. Add in marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and vanilla stirring until smooth. Take the saucepan off of the heat and fold in the peanuts. Pour over the bottom chocolate layer and spread evenly. Allow to cool completely.
  4. For the caramel layer: Melt caramels and heavy whipping cream in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour over the nougat layer and allow to cool completely.
  5. For the top chocolate layer: Melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave together stirring 30 seconds at a time until smooth. Pour over and spread evenly over the caramel. Cool bars completely in the fridge. Keep them in fridge until right before serving because the bars will soften. Enjoy!
