I win the internet.

Snickers Special-K Bars!


I was going to tell you that, post a few pictures and a recipe and be done with it.  Cause I mean, hello.  I won.  Game over.

But then I thought you might want to know why I won.

But that would mean telling you all about these, and they wouldn’t be my little secret anymore.  And people might judge me that I made a dessert with 47 snickers bars in it.  And then added butter.  And sugar.  Cause apparently that’s bad or something.

These are Special K bars covered in Snickers Frosting.


Made of Snickers bars.

Melted down Snickers bars.

Yes, I totally went there.

But that wasn’t it!

I then chopped up an entire bag of the snack size bars and sprinkled them on top as if they were the magical happy tears from rainbow colored unicorns and each precious chunk was saving a Dalmatian puppy from being turned into a coat.

Then I brought one to my husband and made him eat it.  We just looked at each other.  No words were necessary.

Then my daughter came in and said, “Those look weird.”  And I laughed and laughed and crazy eyed laughed and said,

“You have no idea what you are saying child!  Just back away.  Don’t look into them too long or they will bewitch you with rainbows and love.  Slowly, just turn around and then run as fast as you can!  Run I tell you!”

She gave me a weird look and went back to playing My Little Ponies on her ipad.   Even though I forbid her playing that game.  Dang those ponies are sassy!

Snickers Special-K Bars!

snickers special-k bars


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 7 cups Special K cereal
  • Frosting
  • 3 full size Snickers bars
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 2-2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 bag fun size Snickers, each bar chopped into at least five pieces


  1. Prepare a 9 x 13 inch pan. (I spray my pan then line it with parchment paper)
  2. In a large sauce pan, combine sugar and light corn syrup and cook over medium heat until boiling. Stir in peanut butter until smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the cereal. Pat the cereal mixture into the prepared pan.
  4. Frosting
  5. Melt three full size Snickers bars with 1 stick butter in a saucepan over very low heat. (about five minutes) Once melted, remove from heat and add confectioners sugar then the milk.
  6. Pour warm frosting over bars and sprinkle chopped Snickers bars over frosting, allow to set for at least 3 hours.
  7. (You can refrigerate to set quicker, but let bars come to room temperature before serving.)

The Special K Bars recipe was adapted from and the frosting was adapted from The Pioneer Woman.

Immediately after making these and sampling just a bit I packaged everything up to be given away.  They MUST BE GIVEN AWAY.  Or you will eat them ALL.

And you will curse me and thank me and proclaim yourself THE WINNER OF THE INTERNET.

Just trust me.

    OMG Amanda!! I was going to make Special K bars for the concession stand this Friday, but now I think I need to try and make these. The “normal” ones were such a big hit last time, I can just image how these will go. Thanks for sharing.

    When you say white sugar is that granulated sugar/caster sugar in the UK? What can I use if I can’t get the light corn syrup?

    47 Snickers bars! You do win the internet. I absolutely love the way you arranged the snickers pieces on top. And I’m super impressed you had the patience to perfectly chop and place those pieces haha. They would have gone straight in my mouth. :)

      I have seen some of the gorgeous things you create and know for a fact that you have tonz of patience! But yeah, you are totally right. There may have been quite a few snickers that didnt make it to the bars… 😉

    These look so good!! I have a peanut allergy, so I’m going to make an Almond Snickers bar, substituting almond butter for the peanut butter, and the almond Snickers for the regular ones.

    So excited!!

    I just made these and I’m wondering if 1/2 c milk is right???? My frosting was pure liquid and after 3 1/2 hours is still runny. I even added more powdered sugar before I poured it on as it seemed too runny….the flavor is obviously good but the runny frosting has just ruined them!
