I am a dip queen. I can make a meal out of dips, but most of my dip recipes are savory. It’s about time to sweeten things up.

The dip is made with tangy cream cheese, chopped Snickers, peanuts, and there’s melted milk chocolate and salted caramel swirled throughout. I’ve always loved Snickers and the dip is my new favorite way to eat them.

Snickers Dip

Who can resist dip made with candy bars? I can't. The dip is made with tangy cream cheese, chopped Snickers, peanuts, and there's melted milk chocolate and salted caramel swirled throughout. It's dangerously fast and easy to make, ready in 10 minutes, and the texture contrast of the smooth cream cheese with the chewy Snickers, crunchy peanuts, and melted chocolate and caramel is just heavenly. It's rich, incredibly filling, and perfect with graham crackers, Nilla wafers, Oreos, or really just a spoon.

Yield: about 3 cups

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces milk chocolate, melted and cooled for 10 minutes
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature (I used light cream cheese)
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts, roughly chopped if desired
  • 1 heaping cup Snickers, diced small plus 3 tablespoons for garnishing (I used four 1.86-ounce full-size Snicker bars; 3 1/2 bars in the dip and 1/2 bar for garnishing)
  • pinch salt, optional (to balance the sweetness)
  • 1/3 cup caramel sauce or salted caramel sauce (storebought or homemade)
  • graham crackers, Nilla wafers, Oreo cookies, etc. for serving

Directions:

  1. To a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate and heat on high power to melt, about 1 minute. Stir until smooth and set aside to cool.
  2. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or large mixing bowl and electric handheld mixer), add the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and beat on medium-high speed until smooth and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Add the vanilla and beat on medium-high speed to incorporate, about 30 seconds.
  4. Add the peanuts, 1 cup Snickers, optional salt, and stir in by hand.
  5. Add the cooled milk chocolate, caramel sauce, and fold to incorporate using a spatula. Don't overmix because you want to see swirls of white, chocolate, and caramel.
  6. Turn dip out into a serving bowl, evenly sprinkle with about 3 tablespoons Snickers, and serve immediately with graham crackers, Nilla wafers, Oreos, etc. or your favorite dippers. Dip will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  1. This is some serious indulgence! I’d be in heaven with a spoon. Maybe it would seem a little less sinful if I ate it with apple slices😉

  2. You will find me in a closet alone with this dip, happily eating away. Nobody needs to share with me! It looks SO GOOD. Snickers are definitely one of the best candy bars ever!

  3. Oh, my GOSH! I like Paula’s idea of eating it with apple slices….but it definitely needs to be made and eaten ASAP!

  4. You don’t need to twist my arm to eat this, OMG!!! Pinned :)

  5. This. Is. Ridiculous. I LOVE IT

  6. Um, this will make me have to join a 12-step group. TOO addicting! :)

  7. WOW, this is one of your most indulgent recipes yet. Too good

  8. You don’t have to tell me twice to try this! This dip looks insanely good! Pinned! 

  9. I would inhale this like nobody’s business. And I’d enjoy every single minute!!

  10. And I was doing so well avoiding the candy bar dip!! Consider my arm twisted and this recipe pinned for a special occasion.

  11. I could make a meal of dips too.  And I could probably accidentally make a meal of this dip before realizing what I’ve done!  This looks so addictive!  Yum.

  12. This is too much goodness! I love this so much! It’s so dangerous though! I think I will be on sugar over load! This is a dangerous recipe because it is a great base recipe for a a few different candy bars! Yikes watch out! :-)

  13. Utterly wicked and completely inspired! Can’t wait to try this. Thanks

  14. Oh my lordy, this looks yummy.

  15. This looks oh so yummy!

  16. So, first off, I CANNOT believe I never signed up to get your updates until now. WHAT THE HECK?? Secondly, my new year’s resolution is to wait until February to start mine. (that and accomplish a standing back flip by the end of the year) Thirdly, this is delicious, nay not only delicious, it is my new favorite dip. Move over cheesecake, we got a new sheriff in town. Seriously, can we be friends? I’ll even move for proximity sake… Just think about it :-) thanks for the share, now that I’ve adulted and signed up for updates, I might even really grow up and PIN your recipes. WHAAAT? Yeah. I’m feeling pretty good. Only a few days into 2016 I’m already becoming super mature.

    • Glad you subscribed! And I love that you wait til Feb! I read recently that like Jan 18 or Jan 23 is the day that 90% of people abandon their resolutions. So it’s pretty smart not to start til Feb. You beat 90% of people that way :)

      And if you do ever pin things, thanks in advance! I’d love it if you were close…someone else to donate things to. As I cannot eat 2 cakes, a 2 batches of cookies, a 6 person chicken dinner, etc. every week!

    • I KNEW I was secretly a genius! You realize the problem is though, I donate my stuff to others because I don’t have enough time to run it all off. I think that would require round the clock sprints ….lol. but i’m still looking at relocating….

  17. This looks delicious! Why do I feel like I would consume about ten candy bars in one sitting if I made this dip? I wouldn’t be able to stop eating it!! YUM!

  18. Hey Averie,

    ‘Who can resist dip made with candy bars? I can’t.’ – Exactly! Wouldn’t missed it for the world. I don’t know if I should thank you or… :))) Great idea!
