Seeing as it’s Halloween at all, I felt it only made sense to re-create one of my very favourite chocolate bars. Snickers is one of those bad boys that totally flies under the radar, and definitely doesn’t get enough credit. The real deal is good, don’t get me wrong, but when you have the option to make it at home? Well, all bets go out the window. Seriously. Ooey, gooey, delicious perfection can be yours in moments, and tastes (dare I say) better than the real thing. These things are ridiculous, and from here on out will be the only way to successfully celebrate Halloween.
1. Using a doble boiler, melt the peanut butter and chocolate until smooth.
2. Pour half of the mixture into a well greased 9x13 baking dish. Place in the freezer until completely cooled (10-15 minutes).
FOR THE NOUGAT LAYER
3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted, add sugar and condensed milk and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla. Stir until combined.
4. Remove from heat and gently fold the peanuts into the mixture.
5. Pour the mixture overtop the chocolate layer, and place back in freezer until completely set (15-20 minutes).
FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER
6. Using a double boiler, add the caramels and whip cream. Stir occasionally, until melted (this should take 10-15 minutes).
7. Once melted, pour overtop your nougat layer and place back in freezer until set.
8. Once caramel layer has set, pour the other half of your chocolate layer overtop and freeze, oncemore, for an hour.
9. Cut into bars or squares and enjoy!
Keep refrigerated. Though delicious when melty, they do make a bit of a mess when no longer cool!
