How to make your own Snicker Bars

Tis the time of year when Making homemade Candy actually sounds like fun. IF you don't think about it for too long and just DO it. When My sister called last week and said "lets make candy" I started salivating at the thought of my favorite Christmas candy and I said, "Yes, let's".
Chocolate Carmel Candy or as my family calls it, Snicker Candy.


Here you go:
Layer 1:
  • 1 cup milk Choc chips
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Melt together until creamy and smooth, pour into bottom of 9x13 pan and chill until set.

Layer 2:
  • 1/4cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1&1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Melt butter in heavy sauce pan over medium heat, add sugar and milk and bring to a boil. boil and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in marshmallow creme, peanut butter, vanilla and nuts. Spread over first layer and refrigerate until set.

Layer 3:
  • 1 14oz package carmels
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Combine in sauce pan over medium heat until melted and smooth, spread over cream filling and refrigerate till set.

Layer 4:

  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips

Melt together until smooth and spread over top of other 3 layers and refrigerate until set.
Cut into 1 inch squares and serve.
 Or if you want to dip them in Chocolate:
cut into 1 inch squares and put the pan of squares in freezer for approx 30 min.
melt your almond bark and dip each square into the melted chocolate and put on wax paper until set. ENJOY!!
