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

  • 130g Milk Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

 

For the Nougat

  • 150g Marshmallow Fluff
  • 45g Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 140g Icing Sugar
  • 110g Peanuts (unsalted)

 

For the Caramel

  • 110g Unsalted Butter
  • 200g Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 110g Honey
  •  2 tbsp Double Cream

 

For the Topping

  • 130g Milk Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

 

Essential Equipment

  • 20cm (8″) Square Baking Tin

 

Snickers Bars Recipe

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.

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.
