Snickers Fudge at The Happy Housewife

This fudge is a real treat!  It’s been a family favorite at my house for years.  Tastes just like a snickers bar — only better.  The recipe makes 8 dozen squares of fudge, so plan ahead and give this as a gift this year.

Snickers Fudge


  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup real creamy peanut butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts, chopped coarsely
  • 14 ounces caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream


  1. In a small saucepan, melt 1 cup dark chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter together until smooth; stir frequently.
  2. Pour chocolate mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish that has been lined with foil. Chill until set.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add in the sugar and evaporated milk. Boil for 5 minutes while stirring constantly.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, vanilla, and marshmallow cream.
  5. Stir in coarsely chopped peanuts; it's best if these are salty.
  6. Spread the peanut mixture over the chocolate layer in the pan. Chill for 1 hour, or until set.
  7. When center layer is set, place the unwrapped caramels in a microwave safe bowl, add the whipping cream, and heat for 30-second intervals until caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  8. Spread the caramel layer over the filling. Chill for 30 minutes.
  9. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup dark chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter and heat until melted and well combined, stirring frequently.
  10. Pour the chocolate layer over the caramel layer.
  11. Refrigerate fudge for at least 1 hour before slicing.


Fudge makes an excellent gift (provided there are no nut allergies). Store fudge in the refrigerator for up to 35 days.
