How to Make Snickers Cookies Bars

Where to start with these delicious cookie bars… You’ve got the (SUPER EASY) Shortbread crust, the (SUPER GOOEY) caramel and peanut center, and the (SUPER RICH) chocolate topping. Does that sound like heaven or what? Let’s get to baking!

  1. Make the shortbread layer: Combine sugar, butter, flour, salt, and vanilla.
  2. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 9 baking dish (lined with parchment paper).
  3. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F and then remove from oven.
  4. Make the caramel layer: Put caramels and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
  5. Stir the peanuts into the caramel, then pour the mixture in an even layer over the shortbread. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
  7. Pour chocolate over the caramel in an even layer.
  8. Let the cookie bars sit in the refrigerator. The chocolate should cool and harden completely before serving.

Twix Cookie Bars

To be honest, these cookie bars taste a bit like a cross between Twix and Snickers. That shortbread base just reminds me so much of Twix candy bars. So if you don’t like peanuts, you can totally leave them out and make these Twix Cookie Bars instead! Win win in my opinion, although I do like the extra texture and taste of the peanuts. And did I mention the Gooey Caramel yet? So good!
