I'm generally not a huge fan of Valentine's Day and I have to say that the few times that Ben and I have gone out for Valentine's Day I felt incredibly awkward and uncomfortable surrounded by nothing but couples. Perhaps it's the sense of obligation. Perhaps it's the sense of expectation. Or perhaps it's just me - but, truth be told, I rather just spend Valentine's Day at home.
That said, I'm all for a holiday that gives me an excuse to eat an abundant amount of chocolate and so I decided to take advantage of this Valentine's Day to try out a new recipe of chocolately goodness - homemade Snickers bars.
My final thoughts on these little bites of heaven? They are delicious but I learned early on that you only need to cut them in teeny-tiny squares when you eat them because these things are rich!
I followed the recipe as written with only small changes made here and there - like substituting half semi-sweet chocolate chips for the milk chocolate chips and cutting down on the added sugar in the nougat portion. And I definitely recommend storing these in the refrigerator because mine turned into a gooey mess when I left them out (and when I attempted to bring some to my parent's house in a ziplock bag, stuffed in my purse. Sorry dad!).
