My boys are so spoiled. I mean, really. Having a mom that is a food blogger means they get to eat all kinds of deliciously amazing food pretty much all.the.time. Almost daily when I pick them up from school, after a quick hug and a kiss, I get this question, “Did you make anything yummy today Mommy?” Lord help me if the answer is no….

Yummy can take on a variety of forms but when they saw these No Bake Snickers Crunch Bars they got all excited and giggly and were jumping up and down ready to dig into these outrageous bars.

Let’s talk about these bars. First off, no bake. Always awesome. The center is an easy nougat with peanuts (think Snickers) and ooey, gooey caramel, i.e., heaven. The top and bottom layers are a combination of chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, and Cocoa Pebbles. The result? A creamy, decadent, crunchy concoction that wowed my boys and will wow you too.

My boys favorite part of these bars? The crunch factor courtesy of the Cocoa Pebbles. They were pretty impressed that I put one of their favorite cereals into a now-favorite dessert. Mo’ chocolate = mo’ better.

After making my Marshmallow Dream Bars last year, I realized that chocolate, butterscotch, and peanut butter may be my all-time favorite combination of flavors. The only way I could think to make it better was to combine the caramel layer from my Quick and Easy Carmelitas and a pillowy layer of nougat in between. You guys. Wow.

A couple of quick tips:

  • Use parchment paper to line your baking dish. You’re going to love that it doesn’t stick!
  • An offset spatula makes quick work of all those layers!
  • Keep the bars chilled until ready to eat. The caramel will start getting gooey after about 20 minutes.

These No Bake Snickers Crunch Bars instantly became a new favorite with us and I know they will with you too!
