How incredible do these super easy, no bake Snickers Bars look?! I guarantee they taste even better and they’re nowhere near as tricky to make as you’d think. In fact, you can make them in less than an hour without even breaking a sweat. A beautiful chocolate top & bottom filled with gooey caramel, chewy nougat and crunchy peanuts… They’re also naturally vegetarian & gluten free. Are you grabbing your apron yet?
Here is what you will need to make 16 bars.
(Recipe adapted from Imperial Sugar)
For the Bottom
For the Nougat
For the Caramel
For the Topping
Firstly, lightly grease & line your tin with baking paper.
To make the bottom layer, break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl and add the peanut butter. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds then give it a good stir. Repeat in 10 second blasts until it’s melted and smooth.
Next, pour it into your prepared tin and smooth out with a spatula. Pop it into the freezer to harden while we make the nougat.
Add the marshmallow Fluff & peanut butter into a large bowl then sift in the icing sugar. Give it a really good mix until all the ingredients have come together to make a sticky dough.
Oil up those hands, pick up the dough & squash it into a rough square. Then place it onto the set chocolate base and press in evenly, getting right into the edges & corners.
Next, scatter over the peanuts and lightly press them in. Place into the fridge while we make the caramel.
In a large frying pan/saucepan over a medium heat, melt together the butter, sugar, honey & double cream. Bring to the boil and boil for 2 minutes. You can stir if you need to.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes giving it a stir every now and then.
Then pour it over the nougat/peanuts and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
As with the bottom layer, break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl and add the peanut butter. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds then give it a good stir. Repeat in 10 second blasts until it’s melted and smooth. Then pour over the top of the set caramel and smooth out with a spatula.
I like mine to set properly in the fridge for an hour before slicing but if you want yours quicker, set in the freezer for 10-15 minutes then slice into 16 bars. (A 4 x 4 grid.)
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 5 days.
Just look at that, it’s a beautiful sight isn’t it? How much do you want some Snickers Bars now eh?! I think you should stop drooling and go get the ingredients right now…
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
