When it comes to dessert, I can pass on pie and don't care much about cake, but when it comes to candy, I just can't help myself. I love nothing more than a good candy bar on a stressful afternoon. As good as the vending machine variety are, however, homemade versions of them can be even better.
Copycat recipes never taste exactly like the real deal, no matter how much you tell me they do. However, you can get pretty close to replicating -- and often even improve upon -- them in your own kitchen. They're also much more fun to give as gifts or serve as dessert than just buying a bag of pre-made ones. Here are six of the best copycat candy recipes I've found.
Let's start at the top of the heap with the best candy ever created -- chocolate peanut butter cups. This recipe is so delicious and so easy (you don't even have to bake them!), you'll find them more irresistible than ever.
The crunchy cookie base, the creamy caramel, and the delicious chocolate coating -- these bars are just brilliant. Whip up a batch of your own and be wowed.
Everyone will be begging to break off a piece of these bars. The crunch in this recipe comes from a surprising ingredient -- crackers!
If you feel like a nut, these are perfect. If not, just skip the Almonds, and you've got Mounds. Either way, you've got some incredibly delicious treats.
The sweet and the salty mix these bars provide is perfection. This incredibly decadent recipe does not disappoint, and it's more than satisfying.
If easy is your style, then these are for you. They take just three ingredients, and they're amazing!
