Homemade Snickers Bars - It Is a Keeper

Each autumn we hold our annual Hitchcock Fall Fest.  It’s a fun day full of food and games for the kids.  This year, we even had an apple launcher.  The kids loved flinging apples across our property with this giant sling shot.

My good friend Amy brought these delightful Homemade Snickers Bars to our annual Fall Fest party.  Once word got out about what she brought, the platter was almost picked clean within minutes!  Everyone couldn’t get enough.

My husband was busy that day setting up the games and tending to the fire pit, so I had to sneak one and hide it away for him.  I knew he’d love them!

Ever since Fall Fest, he’s been begging me to make these.  If you are a fan of Snickers candy bars, then you are going to love this homemade version!  They taste just like the candy bar!

These Homemade Snickers Bars are not hard to make, but they do take some time.   They are worth it in the end — trust me!
