Death by Snickers Bars

What’s the food that you eat to completely undo it?

And by undo it I mean, UNDOOOOO it.

Undo your brain, undo your diet…just undo it.


Well, listen here, friends.

I have made you some bars that will not only undo your day’s problems, they will also help you undo your jean’s top button…and maybe a little zipper too.

I don’t mean that in a sexy-time way, either.  These bars are that major.

They’re an end of the day, cleansing breath, getting comfy, eat with two hands, kind of a bar.

Sometimes you have to go for it.

Death by Snickers Bars.

So let’s begin.

Don’t be alarmed by the amount of butter. It’s just an innocent 4 sticks.
PhotobucketOr the amount of brown sugar. Just 3 cups.
You’re making caramel bars here people. Get over it.
PhotobucketYou’ll need some Snickers bars.
PhotobucketThen you’ll need to chop them up. Trust me, they’re cool with it.
PhotobucketMix up all your ingredients and spread it evenly in your prepared pan. Make sure to leave a little overhang of foil at the end. It will help when it’s time to cut and remove.
PhotobucketNext take that glorious can of dulce de leche. I found mine down the Mexican food aisle of the super market…if you can’t find that in your store, no worries…make your own! Yes, you can. Here’s a great how-to for making your own dulce de leche.
Plop the dulce de leche all over the top of your batter…
PhotobucketAnd swirl it all in.
PhotobucketThen bake it up.
You have to let these bars have some downtime after they’re done. I like to make them the night before, because they take quite a bit of time to set up and cool. If you can’t wait overnight, give them at least 3 hours.
Here’s how they’ll look…
PhotobucketThat’s it. Cut them, eat them and loosen that belt.

  5. In stand mixer on low speed mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until evenly combined.
  6. Slowly add in the flour mixture until just combined.

  8. Spread batter into prepared pan.

These bars are best if made the night before. They take quite a bit of time to set up.

I halved the recipe and used an 8×8 pan. Half the time to bake?


You just made my four boys very happy….well, okay, I have to count the hubby, my FIVE boys 🙂 Thank you.


Sorry for my lack of common sense, but could anyone possibly guide me on the amount of snickers to use? I live in the UK, so our bars are measured in grams. Is it 2.7oz of snickers altogether or 8 x 2.7oz? I can’t wait to make these!!


This is a great recipe! Thank you for posting it! I have made this twice, the first time following this recipe, the second with minor changes. The second time, I chose to use Snickers with almonds to dress it up a bit. I didn’t have any luck finding the dulce de leche the second time (I live in Texas, but was visiting Virginia the second time), but I was able to find Cajeta, which is a Mexican caramel sauce, and I think I liked it better, as it was more “chewy”. Finally, I baked off a graham cracker-walnut crust in… Read more »


I forgot one other thing… Just before putting it into the oven, I sprinkled the top with Kosher Salt.

My friend is a Snicker fiend and these bars will be perfect. I’ll just slip on some yoga pants before I make these! That solves the pant button problem and I wont feel the guilt as I munch on these fabulous looking bars! 😉


OMG!!! A friend sent me this email, almost deleted it, but i didnt, and when I opened it, I found the most delicious looking cookie bar!!!!! I made them this evening w/my daughters help, after they cooled for a few hours, cut into the end, and OOOOOOO Very yummy!! Plan on sharing and giving away as special treats!!

I made these as soon as I saw your post. They were even better than they look / sound! Hard to believe, I know!
My mixer broke so I just used a wooden spoon and a little elbow grease as you suggested 😉
I do confess that I couldn’t wait 3 hours to taste them, but I just snuck a little corner square, I promise :). This is definitely a keeper and very probably a go-to recipe! Thanks do much for sharing!!!

I am never afraid of butter and sugar! I can’t wait to make these for my mom for Mother’s Day, she loves Snickers.

Karen @ Sugartown Sweets

Snickers are my hubby’s favorite! But he doesn’t have to *undo*!! Even after 20 years of marriage, he’s still fair 😉 These look awesome!

Robin @ Simply Southern Baking

Goodness gracious! These look absoulutely amazing!


They are in the oven! They smell amazing! I couldn’t find dulce de leche in my local grocery store though 🙁 I thought it was more like caramel.. But one of the workers told me to get sweeten condensed milk.. Hopefully it will turn out! Next time I will have to do some more looking around.. But I was so anxious to try these, I couldn’t wait! Thanks for sharing!


They look amazing :O


You my dear are EVIL!! I think I say that every time I comment….
