Homemade American Classics: Snickers Bars, Peppermint Patties, 
Peanut Butter Cups, Oreos and More!

This morning the fan page from Joy of Baking posted a link to homemade Peppermint Patties.  I looked at the photo and started thinking of all of the candies and treats we’ve loved since childhood. Many of us don’t buy these sinful treats not just because we’ve grown out of them… or to avoid the calories but to avoid the processing and artificial flavors that comes with buying commercial food.  But… what if we could make all these at home?  What if we could make these for our own kids or as homemade gifts during the holidays?

I scoured the internet and found some great recipes from reputable sites. The links to these sites are below.  I will also continue to surf and update this post as I find new homemade classics.  If you have recipes or links you would like to share, please do so in the comments section.

  1. YEA! We are a Feingold family, and these things are just not on the list if one has to buy them, this is WONDERFUL!
    Now a question…..can you find a recipe which replicates Cheerios? I have found numerous granola and Grape Nut recipes…..but not a Cheerios one.
    Thanks for the wonderful site to browse through!
