SNICKERS BARS (MMM BARS).

Snickers

So dessert! I know, such a new topic for me…

Out of everything sugar that I so do adore, candy would have to be at the bottom of my favorites list. As in, I would really be ok with never having a candy bar by itself.

WHOA. WHAT? I know, weird.

I mean I love candy in things. Like put some butterfingers in my ice cream, or some reese’s in my brownies any day! But, just snacking on candy doesn’t totally thrill me.

Snickers

(That’s why I almost didn’t make these.) GASP. It makes me sad just saying those words…because I can barely even explain to you how truly amazing these are. Life changing, even.

LIKE I’M SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW. Because you guys. These are homemade snickers bars.

But, not just ordinary snickers bars. They are snickers on steroids. Stuffed with peanut butter AND milk chocolate AND caramel AND marshmallow fluff AND peanuts. Yeah. These are the most delicious, sweet, rich piece of candy/fudge/bar/just plain goodness that you will ever taste.

Actually, they aren’t even known as snickers bars amongst my friends anymore. They are officially mmm bars. Because MMMMMM is the exact noise that unavoidably comes out when you take a bite.

And for those of you who aren’t the biggest bakers, these are right up your alley! No oven required ;)
