Snicker Toffee Butter Bars

Nothing quite says “I need this dessert RIGHT NOW!” like desserts that use snicker bars. With unsalted butter, sweetened, condensed milk, and light brown sugar vying for space with mini Snicker candy bars, toffee pieces, and peanuts, this ridiculously tasty and rich dessert is legendary.
Lucky for us, there are thousands of snicker bar recipes out there, adding an incredible amount of variety in ways to make this special dessert. However, how do you choose the right one? I trusted my friend and foodie Brown Sugar Mama to send me her best version – and what she delivered was nothing less than a relevation!
Special note: Brown Sugar Mama’s recipe for Snicker toffee butter bars delivers 20-24 servings, but the biggest challenge in serving it is catching the “cheaters,” (you know who you are) who quietly grab 3 or 4 pieces at once and act totally innocent when half the tray is gone. Good luck with that!
To make this spectacular, addicting recipe, you’ll need the highest quality unsalted butter, flour, and even that little pinch of salt to add just a tiny bit of savor to the sweet. That’s the blueprint – follow it faithfully!
(Snicker) bar desserts: a sweet slice of Americana
“So, what’s the deal with dessert bars – what makes them special?” is probably not a question uttered often, especially by people standing right next to a tray of their favorite bar dessert. However, this uniquely American-style delight has transformed bake sales, birthday parties, and even the food case at the local coffee shop, so it definitely deserves the attention.
As it stands, dessert bars – also known as dessert squares or dessert cookies – have been circulating around America for some time, with amateur chefs whipping up their own versions using everything from coconut to peanut butter and raisins to mini-marshmallows.
Each time I make something that needs butter, including these snicker toffee butter bars, I always add our dairy’s unsalted version. We also have salted, garlic herb, and even maple syrup varieties available at markets, specialty stores, and our website. And each time I’m thrilled with how things turned out, and can’t wait to dig in!
