Caramel Snickers 7 Layer Bars.

My caramel-infused, 7 layered version of a Snickers Bar! 

Homemade Caramel Snickers Bars - caramel-infused, 7 layered version of a Snickers Bar!  @sallybakeblog

Let’s put the healthier eating on hold for a sec. K?

Quick, what’s your favorite candy bar? Mine are Snicker’s. I like to keep little bite sized snickers bars around for a small little treat every now and then – I like them frozen.  Am I the only one who likes frozen Snicker’s bars? Besides you, mom!

Anyway, I went a little crazy recently and added anything and everything “snickers-y” into a layered dessert bar. Making a 7 layer bar (aka magic bar) is SO easy.  Throw a bunch of stuff into a pan and cover it with sweetened condensed milk – just make sure you have a sturdy crust.  The options are endless! And today, the option is Snickers. I hope you’re ready for this.

Let’s dissect these layer by layer. I wanted to shoot photos of each layer for you but I made these bars early one dark morning, wearing my glasses, and well… I can’t really use a camera wearing my glasses. And I’m dangerously blind without my glasses.

Start with a graham cracker crust. That is the first layer. I used low-fat honey graham crackers and pulverized them with my food processor. You may buy graham cracker crumbs or crush up full graham cracker sheets – I’ll leave that up to you. Mix the crumbs with melted butter and press into an 8×8 pan.

I love that this recipe is a smaller batch recipe. Typical 7 Layer Bar recipes make a large 9×13 batch. Trust me, I do not need this many tempting caramel-laden, snickers-gooey, buttery little bars around the house.  This small-batch recipe is perfect.

Moving along to all the fun layers! I thought about all of the things packed inside my beloved Snickers bars and dug through my pantry to find the appropriate goodies. First, top the crust with milk chocolate chips (2nd layer). Add a layer of peanut butter chips (3rd layer).  Yes, I realize that regular Snickers do not have peanut butter in them, but in my world – peanut butter is ALWAYS welcome.

Next, add chopped Snickers bars (4th layer), soft caramel candies (5th layer), and chopped dry-roasted peanuts (6th layer).

The soft caramel candies and the caramel from the Snickers melt all over, making these bars SO gooey. Gooey and sticky and sweet. Tip: make sure you have napkins handy when you eat them.

Pour the 7th and final layer on top of everything.  Sweetened condensed milk is the most crucial ingredient involved, binding all of these glorious layers together.  You’ll want to completely drench the layers with a nice pour.

**It’s helpful to note that this recipe does not use an entire 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk – only 8 ounces.  However, if you’d like to double this recipe and make it in a 9×13 pan, you may use a standard 14 oz can and double the rest of the ingredients.

As the bars bake, the sweetened condensed milk bubbles around the top and edges of the pan, sinking down into every last layer.  The baked sweetened condensed milk makes the bars unbelievably chewy and it reminds me of a Snicker’s bar nougat filling.

Every last bite of these is packed with everything you love about a Snickers bar. And they have chopped snicker’s bars on top too.  It’s a double Snickers experience. ;)

There are so many tastes and textures going on in these!  A buttery crust, soft milk chocolate, crunchy peanuts, lots of peanut butter chips, gooey caramel, SNICKER’S BARS, and sticky sweetened condensed milk.  Each bite has something completely different – a texture freak’s dream come true.

And a Snickers lover’s dream come true.

    Delicious! Snickers definitely is in my top 3 favourite chocolate bars! I need to make these bars (or at least a version of them, my husband’s been bugging me to make the DisneyWorld magic cookie bars since we came back from our trip 2 years ago!) :-)

    Oh my God, Sally, these are every Snickers lovers’ dream! I’m addicted to taking classic recipes and putting my own twist on them. I love how magic bars are so versatile that you can add different layers depending on your tastes/cravings. You were clearly craving Snickers the day you made these :) They look dangerously rich and delicious. And I also love frozen Snickers-in fact, that’s the only way I eat them!

    Usually, it’s quite easy for me to “veganize” a recipe, but you’ve given me quite the challenge! These bars look so good, though, that I don’t mind one bit. It might be a project spanning a few days (homemade graham crackers, caramels, condensed coconut milk), but I think I’m up for it! I can’t stop drooling over the pictures. Thanks for another wonderful recipe!

    Averie @ Averie Cooksposted January 5, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Totally amazing. They are everything I could want in a bar! First I do love coconut but once it’s added, it does tend to take over the flavor and has that unmistakeable texture & I love that you were able to omit it yet still get that perfect top layer. Must be the sweet cond milk. Which I also love!

    Funny you mention using a half can – I have a recipe this week that uses a half can. And a couple recipes on my site that can be made to use the other half. Lol

    I love Snickers too. Butterfinger, Reeses & Snickers are my fave old school candy. And last month a few times when I was traveling, Snickers bars saved me. These look awesome Sally!

      I agree, Kaylie – I don’t think you could ever go wrong with snickers in a bar dessert. I do love regular 7 layer bars as well! Let me know if you make these sometime.

    Sally! These looked so divine I just had to make them, and I took them out of the oven! Can’t wait to eat them! I was wondering how small did you chop the Snickers up? I was chopping with a large knife and trying to be careful . I used caramels and cut those up too. Not sure how small they needed to be. Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to try them out tomorrow! :)

      Hi Colleen! I’m so so so glad you made these. They are unbelievable. I chopped the snickers up very tiny – the caramels too. The caramel squares gave me about 6 small pieces each. The snickers bite size (the very mini ones) – gave me about 4 small cubes each. does this make sense? Thanks!

      • Colleenreplied on January 11th, 2013 at 11:02 am

        Makes perfect sense. One thing, in the printed recipe itself, you don’t say “chopped peanuts”. It just says peanuts. While it does say to “chop” the nuts in your post, it doesn’t in the recipe and I didn’t chop the nuts. I kept looking at them in the pan, before placing it in the oven, and thinking something just looked different. I should have chopped them! My mistake, but I’m sure it won’t change the taste at all! I’m hoping to be able to find the carmel chips the next time I make this. It’s too easy to eat the caramels while chopping! :) My husband took them into work this morning. I’m anxious to see how they like them. I did save a couple for us to try too! Thank you for sharing the recipe! :)

    what do you think about adding some shredded coconut to the top of the 7 layer bars? too much?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on January 21st, 2013 at 8:27 am

      Sounds like a great idea Colleen! I wanted to keep these tasting like Snickers Bars – but adding coconut like a traditional 7 layer bar is a wonderful idea.

      My Bad! I just read the bottom of the recipe where you said to double! I cannot wait to make these, as snickers have always been my favorite candy! I also enjoy them frozen! Have you ever had a frozen 3 Musketeers? That is the only way I’ll eat them!

        No worries Sallie! Yep, they can easily be doubled in a 9×13 pan. :) I’ve never had a frozen 3 musketeers bar before! But something tells me I would LOVE it. Ahh I need to try it ASAP. Thanks Sallie!

    In Dec. you posted your Snickers 7-layer cookie bars. There was a comment byBaking-Joy.com, who wrote about the Walt Disney Magical cookie bar . I have tried to e-mail her but it didn’t go through. Has anyone in your staff have this recipe? I would love to try it.

    OMGGGG I made the wonderful mistake of making these AMAZING bars for my co-workers and now they will not stop bugging me for more lol. So addicting, easy to make, and DELICIOUS!! I’ve had/made Magic Bars in the past but not everyone is a fan of coconut so I was so happy when I came across your recipe. I have always been terrible at baking (my previous attempts before finding your blog have resulted in extra legs for my large sectional lol) This is the 11th recipe I’ve made from your website and every single one comes out perfect and insanely delicious. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

    I have made these bars twice now, and made atleast a double batch each time! Now let me tell you how freaking awesome these are. If you are thinking about making these and can’t make up your mind, STOP, go to the store, buy the ingredients, assemble and bake as fast as you can so you can eat these ASAP!

    The second time I made these I cut the caramels up in quaters and it helped the chewing process. I also lightly salted the top right before putting it in the oven, kind of helps cut all of the sweetness. Other than that all I can reccommend is to not share these puppies, they will be gone before you know it!

    THEY KICK A$$!!!!

    Hello Sally! Let me start by saying the bake sale I helped a friend out with was a huge success ( they raised over $1200 for a local family) Thank you for your insightful help on my selections, I always appreciate the comments back :)
    I am now looking into my pantry to find something to bake with my boys and I am out of peanuts, anything I can sub for them?
    Thanks!

      Hi Kara! I am so happy to hear that the bake sale was a huge success! $1200 is simply amazing. HUGE congrats to you – and the rest of the bakers!

      I love these caramel 7 layer bars. You could simply leave the peanuts out, or sub with any of the following

      1) add more peanut butter or milk chocolate chips
      2) 3/4 cup marshmallows
      3) 3/4 cup any other nut
      4) 3/4 cup chopped and peeled apples (surprisingly good)
      5) more chopped Snickers
      6) 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
      7) 3/4 cup shredded coconut

    Hi! I’m excited to try this recipe out. Did you use salted or unsalted dry roasted peanuts? Was thinking the salted would be a nice cut against all the sweet but not sure if that would be TOO much salt. Thoughts?

    • Sallyreplied on November 10th, 2013 at 10:59 am

      Hi Bree! I used salted peanuts. It really didn’t make a huge difference. I liked the slight saltiness with the Snickers and caramel.
