Posted on 04/27/2010 7:07:18 AM PDT by GonzoII
Snickers candy bars are awesome, but I wanted to try making them at home without all the stabilizers and additives necessary for a mass-market, shelf-stable candy bar*. This recipe is super-easy, and makes a full pan of delicious homemade Snickers candy bars!
Beware, they're extremely good, and as I said, the recipe makes LOTS. Be sure to have a crowd to eat these treats, or the self-control to put them in the freezer for longer-term storage! My testers report that these candy bars taste even better frozen.
*Yes, I know this version still uses ingredients that contain some stabilizers and additives - they make it taste most like a true Snickers bar. Feel free to substitute homemade peanut butter, marshmallows, etc to fit your preferences.
step 1 Gather materials and ingredients I'm giving these ingredients by both weight and volume where relevant. Weighing is much easier, but if you don't have a digital kitchen scale yet* the volume measurements will do. Ingredients: 14 oz milk chocolate (about 2 cups chips, or coarsely chopped bar) divided in half 3.5 oz (1/2 cup) butterscotch chips, divided in half 192 g (3/4 cup) creamy peanut butter,
step 2 Cost estimate Per request from the comments, here's a rough cost estimate based on my purchase prices. Most of these came from stores near my office in downtown SF, so you can probably do better! Milk Chocolate: 2x$2.50 = $5 Butterscotch chips: $2.50/bag, used 1/4 = $0.63 Peanut butter: $3.50/jar, used Butter: $2.99/lb, used Evap milk: $1.29, used 1/3 = $0.43 Sugar: no idea,
