Snickers Special-K Bars

I need to tell you all about these, and then 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!

Get ready for one heckuva fantastic dessert!

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.

  1. You are a GENIUS, absolute GENIUS!!!! Oh my YUM, YUM, YUM!!! I want to make these now! Snickers are my favorite thing & I have a cupboard that is “my cupboard” filled w/ snickers…& Nutella! 😉 I know exactly what they will be used for! Thank you for taking the time to post this! 🙂 Love your site!!!

  2. 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!!

  3. 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!
