At one point Mars, Inc. chose to capitalize on the companys best-selling candy bar, and called this one Snickers Munch Bar. I think that may have been confusing to consumers who expected to open the wrapper and find something inside resembling a Snickers bar. Other than the abundance of peanuts in this butter toffee brittle, this candy bar is nothing like Snickers. It is, however, an awesome peanut brittle that's super-easy to clone. The original is made with only six ingredients: peanuts, sugar, butter, corn syrup, salt, and soy lecithin. The soy lecithin is an emulsifier used here for texture, but this ingredient is hard to find, and we really don't need it for a good clone. Use a candy thermometer to bring the mixture of sugar, butter, and corn syrup up to 300 degrees F, then pour it over warmed, salted peanuts. When the candy has cooled, break it into chunks and you will have created the equivalent of 12 bars of the addicting original.

    • Instructions

      1. Spread the peanuts out on a non-stick baking sheet and heat them up in your oven set on 300 degrees F. This will warm up the peanuts so that they don't cool the candy too quickly when it's added later. There's no need to preheat the oven.

      2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.

      3. Add the sugar and corn syrup and simmer, stirring occasionally. Put a candy thermometer in the mixture and watch it closely.

      4. When the mixture reaches 300 degrees F, add the peanuts and stir well until all of the peanuts are coated with candy. Pour the candy onto the warm baking sheet and spread it flat. When the candy cools, break it into chunks and store it in a covered container.

      Makes the equivalent of twelve 1.5-ounce candy bars.
