Snickers are by far my favorite candy bar. Have been for years. Sure, I’ll eat most other candy bars, but when it comes down to it sometimes I’ve just gotta have a Snickers!
For those times when I’m craving one and I don’t have any in the house and don’t want to run out to get one, this recipe will sooth that craving! I found this recipe via The Sisters Cafe (a food blog that I frequent quite a bit). Most of the time I have all of these ingredients around the house. These little beauties taste Just. Like. Snickers.!! And served along side some vanilla ice cream….need I say more??!

Printable Recipe: Snickers Bars
1 box chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 14-oz package of caramels
1 cup peanuts
1 cup chocolate chips — or more…
Mix the chocolate cake mix, 3/4 cup melted butter, and 1/3 cup sweetened condensed
milk together. This mixture will be very thick. Spread 2/3 of this mixture into the bottom
of an ungreased, 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-10 minutes until set.
Unwrap the caramels and put in a microwave safe bowl. Add 1/3 cup sweetened
condensed milk to the caramels, and melt in microwave, 1 minute at a time until mixture
is completely melted and smooth.
Spread the chocolate chips on top of the cooked cake mixture. Spread/drizzle caramel
mixture on top of this. The caramel will be uneven. Sprinkle peanuts on top next. Then
put remaining cake mixture on top next. Again, this mixture is quite thick, so this will
also be uneven which is ok.
Bake at 350 for 16-20 minutes.
Let cool completely before cutting. This is important as the caramel makes it very difficult
to cut if still warm.
