What ingredients will I need to make these Snickers bars?

You’ll need just 6-7 simple ingredients to make these bars. They are:

  • almond flour
  • salt
  • peanuts
  • pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • dark or semi-sweet chocolate (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
  • peanut butter (I use homemade)
  • coconut oil (optional)
Can I make these bars peanut free?

Yes! If you’re not a fan of peanuts, you can use any other nut and nut butter combination. This recipe would be delicious with almonds and almond butter, cashews and cashew butter, pecans and pecan butter, or with hazelnuts and hazelnut butter!

How do I melt the chocolate?

You can melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the stovetop using the double boiler method. If you melt the chocolate in the microwave, it will help to add a little bit of coconut oil to the chocolate to help it melt smoothly. This isn’t necessary, but will help to thin the chocolate and help it melt evenly.

Homemade Snickers Bars

Servings 8
Prep Time 30 minutes
Chill Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours


For the Crust

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the Caramel

  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt (if using unsalted peanut butter)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup (or raw honey)

Other Ingredients

  • handful peanuts
  • 6 oz dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (optional, but recommended)


  • Add the crust ingredients to a small bowl and mix until a sticky crust forms. If the dough is too dry, add in a bit more sweetener. If the dough is too wet, add more almond flour.
  • Next, line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper and add the crust to bottom of the lined pan. Using a piece of parchment paper, smooth the crust out until it evenly covers the bottom of the pan.
  • Next, mix together the caramel ingredients in a small bowl. Once mixed, spread the caramel evenly over the crust. Sprinkle a generous handful of peanuts on top of the caramel layer and then gently press them down into the caramel (I use a lot of peanuts!). Then place the loaf pan in the freezer.
  • After several hours, remove from the freezer. Place on a cutting board and slice into 6-8 evenly sized bars.
  • Next, melt 6oz dark or semi-sweet chocolate (on the stovetop or in the microwave). I like to add 1-2 tsp coconut oil to the chocolate to help it melt more smoothly.
  • Coat each bar in the melted chocolate then place the bars on a tray lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate the snickers bars until the chocolate has hardened, then enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.



Feel free to bake the crust before adding the peanut butter caramel for a crunchier nougat. Simply bake the crust at 350For 10-15 minutes. Once cooled, top with the peanut butter caramel and peanuts.
