Homemade Snickers Bars

Homemade-Snickers-Bars

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.
