Homemade Snickers

Homemade Snickers are better than the store bought version. They are filled with chocolate, caramel and nougat. They are just the perfect sweet treat.

One of the things I clearly remember my grandma making for Christmas was homemade snickers. They are so good and messy. My grandma made them every year and when she was unable to see anymore she had my mom make them. I think I have made them one other time. I think it’s time to carry on the tradition.

Do Snickers Bars have caramel in them?

Snickers Bars do have caramel in them. One of the layers is caramel. They also have nougat, peanuts, and chocolate. 

What is Nougat made of?

Nougat is made of marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and powdered sugar. The marshmallow fluff gives it the chewy texture.
