How incredible do these super easy, no bake Snickers Bars look?! I guarantee they taste even better and they’re nowhere near as tricky to make as you’d think. In fact, you can make them in less than an hour without even breaking a sweat. A beautiful chocolate top & bottom filled with gooey caramel, chewy nougat and crunchy peanuts… They’re also naturally vegetarian & gluten free. Are you grabbing your apron yet?

Here is what you will need to make 16 bars.


  • For the Bottom
  • 130g Milk Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

For the Nougat

  • 150g Marshmallow Fluff
  • 45g Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 140g Icing Sugar
  • 110g Peanuts (unsalted)

For the Caramel

  • 110g Unsalted Butter
  • 200g Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 110g Honey
  • 2 tbsp Double Cream

For the Topping

  • 130g Milk Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

Essential Equipment

  • 20cm (8″) Square Baking Tin

Step 1: To Make the Chocolate Base

Firstly, lightly grease & line your tin with baking paper.

To make the bottom layer, break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl and add the peanut butter. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds then give it a good stir. Repeat in 10 second blasts until it’s melted and smooth.

Next, pour it into your prepared tin and smooth out with a spatula. Pop it into the freezer to harden while we make the nougat.

Step 2: To Make the Nougat Layer

Add the marshmallow Fluff & peanut butter into a large bowl then sift in the icing sugar. Give it a really good mix until all the ingredients have come together to make a sticky dough.

Oil up those hands, pick up the dough & squash it into a rough square. Then place it onto the set chocolate base and press in evenly, getting right into the edges & corners.

Next, scatter over the peanuts and lightly press them in. Place into the fridge while we make the caramel.

Step 3: To Make the Caramel Layer

In a large frying pan/saucepan over a medium heat, melt together the butter, sugar, honey & double cream. Bring to the boil and boil for 2 minutes. You can stir if you need to.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes giving it a stir every now and then.

Then pour it over the nougat/peanuts and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.

Step 4: To Make the Chocolate Topping

As with the bottom layer, break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl and add the peanut butter. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds then give it a good stir. Repeat in 10 second blasts until it’s melted and smooth. Then pour over the top of the set caramel and smooth out with a spatula.

I like mine to set properly in the fridge for an hour before slicing but if you want yours quicker, set in the freezer for 10-15 minutes then slice into 16 bars. (A 4 x 4 grid.)
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 5 days.

Step 5: Tadah!

Just look at that, it’s a beautiful sight isn’t it? How much do you want some Snickers Bars now eh?! I think you should stop drooling and go get the ingredients right now…

This looks awesome!! I intend to give it a try soon. I'll be needing to change the grams (weight) to volume (either mls. or litres, or preferably ounces and cups) for ease of use but then I'll be away.
The comments about gelatin: It is one of the myriad animal by-products that is utilised when animals are butchered. (And man-kind exists because of the divine provision of animals for our food and our clothing, both early and current clothing, to mention only 2 of their contributions of our survival and flourishing).
When you boil soup bones, the resulting broth- if not diluted- will be gelled when it is cooled. That is from any animal-- chicken, beef, or pork being the most common. Just as interesting and of great value is that animals convert the grass of land that cannot be farmed for any crop (due to climate, terrain, soil types, etc) to protein. They are an integral and necessary part of the circle(s) of life and of the health of our environment.

I have absolutely no idea! I've never delved into the sugar free world myself and wouldn't know where to start. Sorry :(

They're not vegetarian due to the milk chocolate, marshmallow, and honey. All of those have animal products in them.

I don't think milk chocolate or honey has meat in it, but marshmallow contains gelatine which (correct me if I'm wrong) is made from pig skin. Or are vegetarians not allowed to eat any animal products?

You're correct! (Although you can get vegetarian marshmallow.) But I used Marshmallow Fluff which is vegetarian anyway :)

Thank you for understanding that I was not attacking your recipe in mentioning that it wasn't vegetarian.

A lot of people here seem to have been bothered by my response and feel that I am confused by the differences between vegetarianism and veganism. I do understand that the same ingredients I mentioned would also make the recipe non-vegan, but it doesn't dismiss the point that it's not vegetarian. Milk chocolate has milk in it, gelatin comes from animal byproducts, and honey comes from bees.

The level of vegetarianism is an individual choice, so if you are lacto-ovo, then milk may not be a problem for you. I for one didn't know fluff didn't have gelatin in it. You learn something every day.

Hi. Just checking because I am confused. Regarding honey. I thought it was a product that most vegans & vegetarians were okay using since this is a product that bees make naturally?

It varies from person to person. Many of the vegans that I know do not use honey because it was produced for the bees to use for themselves and also because of the destruction of the bee's habitats. I don't claim to be the authority.

I am not sure how my comment was seen so inflammatory by some people. Several people have told me that I am confusing veganism and vegetarianism. It goes from big (vegetarian) to more restrictive (fruit, raw, vegan). I think one person here suggested I climb a tree and eat acorns- that's a squirrel, silly. If you say you're vegan and eat honey, good for you.

Sorry, I did not mean to sound inflammatory in any way. Just was confused. Thanks for the information.

Not at all! Everyone has a different idea/set of morals when it comes to eating choices. I don't profess to know a lot of them I'm just happy to learn along the way :)
