Death by Snickers Bars

Death by Snickers bars stacked on a red napkin

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.

Three death by Snickers bars on a red cloth

So let’s begin.

Four sticks of butter in a mixing bowl
Butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl
Wrapped Snickers bars on a cutting board with a knife
Chopped Snickers bars on a cutting board
Batter in a foil-lined baking pan
Globs of dulce de leche over batter in a baking pan
Caramel being swirled into batter in a baking pan
Bar cookies with caramel swirl
Squares of Death by Snickers bars on a red cloth

Don’t be alarmed by the amount of butter. It’s just an innocent 4 sticks.
Or the amount of brown sugar. Just 3 cups.
You’re making caramel bars here people. Get over it.
You’ll need some Snickers bars.
Then you’ll need to chop them up. Trust me, they’re cool with it.
Mix 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.
Next 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…
And swirl it all in.
Then 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…
That’s it. Cut them, eat them and loosen that belt.

    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! 😉

  2. 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!!

  3. 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!!!

    Snickers are the hubster’s very favorite…I’m thinking that these may be just the thing to make for the day he gets home!! Thanks, Shelley!

  5. You’ve read my mind… last weekend I made dulce de leche in my crock pot and was needing a use for it! These are on the menu for our Mother’s day cook out this weekend!
