My favorite Snickers fudge recipe! A delicious Christmas treat!

This is my kind of fudge! Many traditional, plain fudge recipes are too chocolaty and rich for me. I know, I know, for many of you that is a good thing. But fudge with a caramel layer? Yes, please! These delightful, layered treats are like a rich, homemade Snickers candy bar.

The amount of peanut butter flavor can be adjusted according to taste. I prefer to either omit or add just 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter in the nougat layer. It is definitely delicious either way though!

I recommend using high quality and delicious chocolate chips for this recipe. My favorite milk chocolate chips are Guittard. They usually go on sale sometime during the holiday baking season at one of my local grocery stores.

This recipe is all about layering on the deliciousness. Each simple layer sets up in the freezer while you prepare the next layer. You will want to keep the fudge cold or it will start to “melt.” When I give these treats to neighbors and friends, I make a little note letting them know to keep it refrigerated.

While it may look complicated with the 4 layers, it is actually still pretty simple. The chocolate layers only take about 2 minutes to prepare and the caramel layer is only as long as it takes the caramel to melt. The nougat layer is where most of the ingredients come into play, but it takes less than 10 minutes still.

Gather up your ingredients and supplies, including a spatula for spreading the layers, and make space in your freezer!

Speaking of the freezer, one of the perks of this Snickers fudge is that you can make it in advance and just keep it in the freezer for up to a week, maybe longer. Then just remove from the freezer about 10 or 15 minutes before serving.
