Question for the TEST KITCHEN TEAM -- How many Snickers bars are needed for the recipe??

Hi there! In this recipe, the 1/2 cup chopped chocolate-coated caramel-peanut nougat bars is equal to about 1 full size candy bar. Enjoy!

How many bars do I use 1. Bar or 4bars?

Did not use answer question.

Hi there! This recipe calls for 4 (1-ounce) bars unsweetened baking chocolate. Thanks!

Not clear on one bar of chocolate or 4bars?

No. Question not answered.

I am going to make fudge cheesecake bars, but do the snickers go in the base? Printed off recipe but it never told me what to do with the snickers)

Hello! - The candy bars pieces are stirred into the cream cheese, sugar, and egg mixture in step 3. Enjoy!

Do these need to be refrigerated?

looks so good

These bars were very good. They were moist and not overly sweet even after adding the two cups of sugar. I didn't change anything in the recipe. They were done about 5 minutes before the recipe said but could have just been my oven. I did notice even after spraying my pan with cooking spray they did stick to tha bottom of the pan. Perhaps greasing the pan and flouring it would help. I will try that next time. I will make again.

What is a chocolate coated peanut nuget bar???


What other type of candy bar could be used that doesn't have peanuts in it? My nephew is allergic to nuts.

Is he allergic to peanuts or ALL nuts? I'm allergic to peanuts also, but can have pecans and walnuts. If he can normally eat Milky Way candy bars, you could substitute those. Then, add nuts (or not) depending on the extent of his allergy. Just BE CAREFUL...if trace amounts make him react, don't use any candy bar - they are all made in the same factory. You could make the ingredients yourself though! Good luck!

You can substitute any candy bar that is safe for your nephew to eat. Thank you for your question!

Thanks for your suggestions!
