This Snickers Dip is the perfect sweet appetizer to feed a crowd! And well, it’s dip made of Snickers. How can that not be amazing?

Er, so this is not at all healthy. That recipe is coming tomorrow. This recipe? Is to die for.

It’s January, which means in some houses every Saturday and Sunday there is food getting eaten. And lots of yelling or cheering.

Football playoffs are here! Which means your husband probably invited over half the neighborhood and you need to feed them.

This dip will feed them. And you can make it in time for the games in a few hours!

Snickers Dip made from melted Snickers bars by

Have you ever thought about melting a Snickers Bar? My friend Aimee did, when she made a pie. That’s what made me think about this dip. I love, love, LOVE making sweet dips. I’ve made peanut butter and pecan pie and muddy buddy. I even have a whole chapter on them in the book I’m writing. They’re just so easy to throw together and they feed a crowd.

Or, you can hide in the closet with a spoon and your backlit Kindle. #whatever

Once you melt down your Snickers bars, you just have to mix in the body of the dip: cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and powdered sugar.

Because Snickers alone aren’t sweet enough. Like I said, not a low calorie treat.

But so worth every darn one.

But hey – serve it with apple slices. Then it can be healthy, right?

Snickers Dip - the perfect game day treat! by


Snickers Dip

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups of dip

Snickers Dip


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 16 fun sized Snickers bars, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (regular or low-fat), room temperature
  • 1/3 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Place butter and 12 fun sized Snickers bars in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir often until the Snickers have melted. (The mixture won’t be totally smooth and it will be thick.) Remove from heat and cool a few minutes.
  2. Beat cream cheese and marshmallow fluff in a large bowl with a hand mixer. Beat in melted snickers and powdered sugar. Thinly chop remaining fun sized Snickers bars and stir them into the mixture. Place in a bowl to cool. Serve with apple slices, pretzels, graham crackers, Nilla Wafers, or any other dippers. Good warm or room temperature. Store in refrigerator, but dip needs to come to room temperature to be soft enough for dipping.

    Omg this looks INSANE! Snickers, cream cheese, fluff, butter, powdered sugar…all my faves! :) I seriously love Snickers. One of my fave old school candy bars. I would go nuts for this dip. I cannot make it, that’s for sure :)

    Snickers are my Favorite!! This dip sounds divine to say the least.

    Ah yes, the football playoffs… At least we aren’t the ones hosting the TV-watching parties, so I can still bake and photograph in peace! (Although truth be told, I still like watching — or at least listening to — the games. I’m such a sports girl!) I actually just found 3 random Snickers bars in my chocolate/mix-ins/everything-sweet-or-candy-related drawer this morning. Only 11 more to go for your mouthwatering dip! ;)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 12th, 2014 at 4:03 pm

      Ooooh, or you could make a single-serve version. :)

        You know me too well — I’m ALL about small scale recipes! :)

    Dorothy, I don’t think it gets any better than this. Yum!

    I can’t believe you actually melted down snickers bars! Genius idea- I would have never thought of that!

    You are a genius!!! I would totally be hiding in the closet with a spoon ;)

  23. Mary Frances posted on January 13, 2014 at 9:15 am (#)

    Melted Snickers sounds perfect! That is my favorite candy and this dip is now my favorite dip. Cream cheese, powdered sugar, and marshmallow fluff?! Don’t mind if I do! I think I’ll skip the apples … do Snickers count as dipping tools? :)


  24. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie posted on January 13, 2014 at 9:34 am (#)

    I happen to have a bunch of the peanut butter snickers leftover from Halloween still. I think they might need to be turned into this if I end up at a Superbowl party.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 14th, 2014 at 6:36 am

      Oh yes, with PB Snickers!!! DO IT!


  25. Samantha @ Five Heart Home posted on January 13, 2014 at 9:45 am (#)

    Melting a Snickers bar?! Well now, that is just brilliant…


  26. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction posted on January 13, 2014 at 11:40 am (#)

    Can’t go wrong with a dip that starts with melted Snickers! Amazing!


  27. Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry posted on January 13, 2014 at 11:48 am (#)

    I am all about indulging in a sweet dip every once in awhile! Especially when it has snickers.

    Sweet dessert dips are like an easy to serve fondue! Its such fun to provide a variety of dippables (cookies, marshmallows, fruit) and dip away! This Snickers dip will need to make an appearance at our Super Bowl party. I have never melted a Snickers bar before….I am going to grab a spoon and a kindle and give it a try!:)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 14th, 2014 at 1:22 pm

      The melted concoction almost didn’t make it to the dip bowl! :) Thanks Wendy!

    I’m not usually into sweet dips, but I have to say Dorothy, this looks amazing!!

    I was looking for some great recipes for the big game tomorrow. We live near Denver but are from Seattle. Your dips are inspiring. I’ll share …..many would go well with Trefoils…the Girl Scout Cookies. They are available now, but you won’t find them at a booth sale for another week or so.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 2nd, 2014 at 7:38 am

      Yes, Girl Scout dips are the best. I need to get on that! :)

    I was wondering if you could substitute another candy bar. My friend has a horrible peanut allergy. Any suggestions?


    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 23rd, 2014 at 7:54 am

      I and 99% positive you could sub milky way candy bars. I only know that because I melted some down for brownies for my upcoming cookbook, and that’s what gave me the idea to do this! :)
