I’m sharing with you some ooey gooey goodness …
These Snickers Oreo Caramel Bars are very addictive! You think you can handle by only taking one little teeny tiny bite (aka, a taste )… But it doesn’t happen! Trust me– I’ve tried. And, the only way to have that much control is to hurry and share them with your best friends.
I’m not much of a candy bar person. (Which is strange, because I have a major sweet tooth!) But, my candy bar weakness is the Snickers ice cream bar. Justin will usually grab two of them when he comes out of the gas station…one for him, and one for me. King size! I tell him, he could of just gotten one and we’d share. But, we both know that doesn’t happen.
My boys’ favorite dessert bars I make are the Cookies and Cream Bars. So, I thought I’d take a different spin on those and turn these into a Snickers creation.
I combined the Oreo crust with Snickers candy bars cut into pieces. Layered it all with some salted peanuts and chocolate chips. And, among other ingredients.
Crush up only 17 Oreos, very fine. This is for the crust.
Add some melted butter to the crumbs. Pat the crumb mixture into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
Bake just the crust for 5 minutes in a preheated 350 degrees oven. This allows it to set it a little bit before piling all of the other ingredients on top.
Cut all of the Snickers candy bars into big bite size pieces. Note: buy an extra candy bar in case you have a candy bar thief in your house. They might sneak into the stash of already cut up pieces. (Justin did this and I had him run back to the store to replace it!)
Lay the candy pieces on top of the crust. Put some peanuts in between them and cover with sweetened condensed milk.
Drop the chocolate chips on top and scatter some more candy bar pieces. (I ended up breaking them apart.) Bake for 25-28 more minutes.
I particular don’t favor nuts in my food. But after you make these, let them cool completely. (I let them set up over night…so they’re not calling my name all day from the kitchen!) You’ll love how the nuts get absorbed into the caramel sauce and sweetened condensed milk. Seriously taste like a snickers bar– with a taste of oreo!
If you have a favorite candy bar, which one is it? And, if you happen to go into a convenience store– what is your favorite treat to get?
