Homemade Ooey Gooey Snickers Bars

I amaze myself, I really do.

And not in a overly confident kind of amaze.

I am seriously surprised that I pull off some of the treats I make. Like these adorable bunnies and lil’ chicks for example.

Anyone that really knows me, knows that I am not always the most graceful person.

I have been known to pour chocolate candiquik all over white pants, vanilla all over black pants, you get the drift…

The good news is, these bars do not require tedious decorating, drawing on cute little facesor any crazy assembly, nada.

If you can make almond bark, you totally got this.

There is no excuse in the world not to make these.

Unless you don’t like caramel, chocolate, and Snickers. If that’s the case, I don’t even know where to begin.

I found these over at How Sweet it is. Her photography, recipes, everything…beautiful.
