If you loved the Healthy Peanut Butter Cup recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago, I’m pretty sure you will like these homemade Raw Snickers Bar just as much!
I don’t dare eat GMO candy bars or even like my desserts very sweet, so I don’t know why I’ve been drawn to copycat candy bar recipes lately.
I guess they just look so darn good!
These little guys are just layers and layers of goodness: a layer of chocolate, raw caramel layer, a peanut layer and another layer of chocolate.
I’m not going to lie to you – they were a little messier to make than the peanut butter cups, but if you aren’t trying to impress anyone with them, just do the best you can.
Now I’ve had my share of Snickers* bars back in the day, and they are good.
But these are a much, much better alternative than the original store-bought candy bar:

Tip 1: I substituted and reduced the amount of sweetener in the chocolate part to 2 tbs of raw organic honey and also for the caramel to 2 tbs of raw organic honey and they were still good. However, I listed the original amount of maple syrup and agave nectar from the original recipe. Reduce or change the sweetener to your liking.
Tip 2: They need to be kept in the freezer because they will melt at room temperature.
Tip 3: I used the cute paper muffin cups for the photo, but actually made them in the same trusty silicone muffin cups I used for the Healthy Peanut Butter Cup recipe since I didn’t have any square chocolate molds. I’m not sure how the paper cups would work if you use them.
