This homemade snicker candy bar recipe from scratch is a keeper and produces an outstanding candy bar.
Why? Because this snickers made from scratch is better than store bought with no chemicals or preservatives.
This candy bar recipe makes 40 pieces, but I don't know how many this will serve.
It only takes three people at my house to eat the whole pan (that is, if I share). Recipe adapted from food.com
