Homemade Snickers Candy Bars

I love chocolate! I may or may not have an addiction. I saw this recipe from Eat Cake For Dinner and had to give it a try.  It was AMAZING! It tasted just like a real Snickers candy bar!..only better because it was homemade!

found recipe from: Eat Cake For Dinner

1st Layer:

1 c. milk chocolate chips
1/4 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

Melt together all ingredients in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.  Spread into a lightly greased 9×13 inch glass pan.  Put in fridge to cool.


1/4 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. evaporated milk
1 1/2 c. marshmallow cream
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. salted peanuts, chopped

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat, add sugar and milk, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.  Bring to a boil and stir for 3-5 minutes.  Mixture will start to follow your spoon. Remove from stove and stir in marshmallow cream, peanut butter and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.  Spread over first layer and sprinkle peanuts over top.

Caramel Layer:

1 (14 oz.) bag Kraft caramels
1/4 c. evaporated milk

Unwrap and melt the caramels with the cream in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Carefully spread over filling layer.  

Top Layer:

1 c. milk chocolate chips
1/4 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. peanut butter
