These were one of the most popular desserts in my bakery and they are so simple to make. Sunbutter gives it the nutty flavor and sunflower seeds give it the crunch.

Homemade Nut-Free Snickers Bars

Makes 1 dozen bars

First Layer:
1¼  cups milk chocolate chips
¼ cup sunbutter
Second layer:
¼ cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup evaporated milk
1½ cups marshmallow Fluff
¼ cup sunbutter
1½ cup Gerbs sunflower seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
Third layer:
1 14-ounce bag of Kraft brand caramels
¼ cup heavy cream
Top layer:
1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup sunbutter

For the First Layer:
Spray your baking pan well (Bakers Joy spray is nut free!). Melt ingredients together in a saucepan or microwave, then pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.

For the Second Layer:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in sugar and milk, stirring until dissolved and bring to a boil. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in fluff, sunbutter and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Turn off heat and fold in sunflower seeds, then pour over bottom chocolate layer. Let cool completely.

For the Third Layer:
Combine ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth – this took about 10 minutes for me. Pour over nougat layer and let cool completely.

For the Top Layer:
Melt ingredients together in a saucepan or microwave, then pour over caramel and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.Refrigerate for at least one hour, then cut.
