Grandma B's Snickerbars

See that. It's milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter.  In some very well used measuring cups! It's also the first layer of the chocolaty , peanut buttery loveliness that is my grandma's recipe for homemade snicker bars. I have to tell you most of my life I have spent hating nuts, but loving these babies. It's been several years since I've had them since Grandma's in the nursing home and doesn't cook anymore. This year, I made my mom dig up the recipe so I could make them. Talk about transporting me back to my childhood!! mmmmm.  Yes, they are a bit of work, but totally worth it and much more interesting than plain old fudge! I made my first batch a couple of weeks ago and the hubs demanded that I "DO NOT MAKE THESE AGAIN EVER!!!! "  Not because they are bad, but because he couldn't keep shoving them in his mouth!!

1 cup milk chocolate chips

    Made it, with only one small (blistering) burn on my left index finger. (Making it kind of hard to type right now, as a matter of fact, but it wouldn't be me cooking if I didn't manage to burn myself or break something!) Can't wait to share this with family and friends this holiday! I promise to give you credit for the recipe! :) Thanks for sharing!


Thanks so much for letting me know what you think! I really do appreciate every comment and will do my best to respond to any question you may have!
