  • Chocolate, peanut and caramel are the stars of the show here! The chocolate chip cookie dough crust acts as a deliciously sweet and chewy vehicle for enjoying the classic Snickers candies.

Ingredient Notes

Four ingredients needed for chocolate chip snickers bar recipe.

Chocolate chip cookie dough. To keep things easy, we used a refrigerated ready made cookie dough. Go ahead and swap it out for homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie dough if you like.

Snickers bars. It’s easiest to use the mini size bars that come in pouches and are already unwrapped. Full size bars or the wrapped mini bars work too! You’ll need to unwrap them and chop them into small pieces with a sharp knife.

To complete your 4 ingredient dessert bars, you’ll also need a can of sweetened condensed milk and some milk chocolate morsels.

Sprinkle with the chopped snickers immediately. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or up to overnight.

Cut into bars and serve.

Tips and Tricks

  • Substitutions. Feel free to swap about the Snickers for another favorite candy bar. This recipe is delicious with Milky Ways, Twix Bars, Reese’s cups and so much more.
  • These bars are rich and fudgy. Serve with a glass of cold milk or strong coffee to complement the sweetness.
  • Store bars in an airtight container at room temperature. They’re also if stored in the fridge and eaten cold!
  • Freezer friendly! Got leftovers? Store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in fridge overnight before serving.

Recipe FAQs

Do you cut chocolate chip bars before or after refrigerating them?

I cut my snickers chocolate chip bars after chilling. This gives the fudge layer time to set up and hold its shape when you slice it.

Can I use dark chocolate morsels instead of milk chocolate?

You sure can, if you love the taste of dark chocolate. You can even use white chocolate in this recipe. We support chocolate in all of its forms here!

How far in advance can I make cookie bars?

You can make cookie bars as many as 3 days in advance. I like to prep them the day before serving and let them set up overnight. If you do that, make sure to cover the pan with plastic wrap or foil to prevent them from drying out.

How much cookie dough do you need?

I use a 30 oz package of cookie dough. This is about the equivalent to one standard batch of homemade dough that yields 3 dozen cookies. Just make sure you have enough dough to evenly cover your whole baking sheet.
