Last week at our youth Valentine's Dinner, Sherry brought these awesome homemade snickers. These things really taste like snickers! There are several layers to this recipe but it really doesn't take that much time to put together. This is a popular recipe right now and there are several different ways to make it. Let me know if you have a different version.

They were a huge hit and here is her recipe:
