Homemade Candy Bar Recipes - Three Musketeers®, Snickers® & Twix®

Homemade Candy Bars Blog Imperial

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But while these homemade candy bar recipes were inspired by their store-bought counterparts, they can definitely stand on their own. Nothing is sweeter than homemade goodies and these are easier to make than you might think. So give in to your craving and break out the chocolate.

Let’s start with Three Musketeers® – The Three Musketeers candy bar was invented by the Mars, Incorporated in 1932. It originally came in a package of three, smaller sized bars of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry nougat. After you picked your favorite flavor you could choose to eat the other two as well or share them with your friends. Unfortunately, the strawberry and vanilla flavors were discontinued due to sugar rationing in 1942 and the candy bar we know and love today is typically sold as one chocolate and nougat bar. Other flavors have been offered throughout the years for a limited time, but now you can enjoy the original taste of strawberry whenever you want with Chef Eddy’s copycat recipe. The best part? This recipe makes 40 bite-sized bars so you can share with a lot more than two friends!

Snickers® – This candy bar with chocolate, nougat, peanut and caramel was introduced in 1930 by Mars Inc. (formerly Mar-O-Bar Co.), named after the favorite race horse of the Mars family. According to todayifoundout.com:

  • Up until 1990, the Snickers® candy bar was known as the “Marathon” candy bar in Britain.
  • Upon switching the name to Snickers®, as it was known to the rest of the world, the candy bar went from the number one selling candy bar in Britain to the number three.
  • About 100 tons of peanuts go into making about 15 million Snickers bars each day.
  • Each Snickers® bar contains roughly 16 peanuts.
  • The pattern on the underside of the Snickers® bars comes from the belt they ride on while the chocolate cools.
