Candy Bar Fudge - gooey layers of nougat and caramel. This bar tastes just like a Snickers

Hi Bold Bakers!

Halloween is a time when there is an abundance of candy everywhere, but did you ever think of making your own candy bars? I came across this recipe for candy bar fudge and I was amazed! And I think you’ll find it’s so much better than store bought.

This candy bar fudge has layers of chocolate, caramel, nougat and peanuts so it is very reminiscent of a Snickers.

If you follow my Bold Baking Basics series then you know that you can make many of the ingredients in this recipe from scratch, like Homemade Peanut Butter, Homemade Marshmallow Fluff and even Homemade Icing Sugar.

Absolutely love this recipe! I made it twice yesterday. One was to send to my brother’s family and the other was for my house. We can’t get over how spot on it tastes to an actual snickers! Would love a standard twix recipe too!! I know there is the healthy version, but my pantry is stocked with more standard ingredients than almond flour and coconut oil. Thank you again Gemma!!
