Homemade Snickers Bars are very easy to make and melt in your mouth with deliciousness. Buttery shortbread, caramel with crunchy peanuts and chocolate!
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, so it overhangs on two sides as handles for easy removal.
Add salt and sugar to a large bowl and whisk to combine.
Pour the hot melted butter over the salt and sugar, mix until combined. Whisk in the egg and mix until combined.
Using a spatula, stir in the flour and mix just until incorporated. The dough will be very thick, almost like play dough. This is ok, if needed use your hands to incorporate last bits of flour.
Press dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Poke holes with a fork and bake for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, add condensed milk, sugar, butter and dark corn syrup to a medium sauce pan over medium - low heat. Stir continuously for 8 - 10 minutes until the mixture thickens. Do NOT boil the mixture, it should lightly simmer. Remove from heat.
Stir in peanuts into the caramel mixture and pour on top of the shortbread layer. Bake for 20 minutes. The caramel mixture should look more settled, thick and a deep golden color.
Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before topping with the chocolate layer.
Place chocolate and light corn syrup into a medium bowl.
Microwave heavy whipping cream until hot and pour it over the chocolate. Let sit for 1-2 minutes. Stir until fully combined. If there are bits of unmelted chocolate, microwave the mixture for 15-20 seconds and stir to combine. The mixture should look smooth and shiny.
Pour melted chocolate over the caramel layer and refrigerate until settled, at least 2-3 hours.
Once ready to serve, using the parchment paper handles , lift the bars from the pan and transfer to a cutting board.
Cut into bars and serve! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
