Recipe Ingredients

Snickers Fudge Recipe (2)

Chocolate chips – Milk chocolate chips melt well and align best with the way a Snickers bar tastes like. Dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips work great, too!

Peanut butter – Use creamy peanut butter (with added peanuts in recipe) OR omit the peanuts and use chunky peanut butter.

Marshmallow creme – Make your own marshmallow creme by cooking 2 cups of mini marshmallows, 2 tbsp of butter and 2 tbsp of light corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until free of lumps.

Caramels– Save time by purchasing caramel bits instead of individually-wrapped caramels.

How To Make Candy Bar Fudge

First Layer

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Heat in the microwave in two 30-second intervals, stirring after each. Stir until creamy and then pour the mixture in an even layer into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the pan in the freezer.

  • Marshmallow creme

Third Layer

In a small saucepan, add:

  • Caramels
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the caramel is melted and smooth. You could do this step in the microwave instead, but for some reason I always prefer melting caramel on the stove.

Remove the pan from the freezer and pour the caramel over the top in an even layer. Place back in the freezer.

Fourth Layer

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Heat in the microwave in two 30-second intervals, stirring after each. Stir until creamy. Remove the pan from the freezer and pour the mixture in an even layer onto the top. Make sure the caramel layer is firm before doing this.

Refrigerate for 1 hour (or perhaps you could cheat a bit and freeze for a shorter time like I may or may not have done).

Cut into small squares and serve!
