Snickers brand candy bars feature chocolate, nougat, peanuts and caramel. They make a sweet snack that is both crunchy and chewy. Preparing your own similar candy bars at home reduces the cost of buying multiple candy bars in a store. Because you make the bars all at once in a pan, you can also cut the finished candy into your own desired portion sizes. Serve the candy bars at parties or as a dessert, or eat them as a snack to satisfy your sugar cravings.
