Snickers Dessert Bars

Halloween has just come and gone. I’m thinking people might have already had their fill of Snickers, but ya know, maybe not! So without further ado, let me introduce homemade snickers dessert bars! Again, I’m sure you’re tired of them after Halloween, but there are 11 other months in the year, haha.

These Snickers dessert bars have the chocolate, caramel, nuget, and peanuts. Yum!

These look like something that my grandma would make. I do love the holiday spread at my grandma’s! It’s a lot less than it used to be, but I remember it in its hayday. There were like 5 or 6 types of cookies, 4 types of bars like these, and then all the rum and bourbon balls you could ever want! Not to mention the pies my mom makes!!! Mmmm. Start a new family tradition with these Snicekrs dessert bars!
