How To Make Mars Bars (Copycat)

Satisfy your sweet tooth craving with these copycat Mars bars that have layers of nutty nougat, caramel, and chocolate, for heavenly goodies.

Prep: 25 mins
Additional: 3 hrs
Cook: 15 mins
Total: 3 hrs 40 mins


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup water, plus additional 2 tbsp
  • 1⁄8 tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • cup almonds
  • 35 caramels
  • 24 oz milk chocolate chips


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Bring to a boil and add salt. Heat to 270 to 290 degrees F or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard but pliable threads.

  2. While the syrup is cooking, beat the egg whites in the metal bowl of an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. When the syrup is ready, set the mixer to low speed, remove the syrup from the heat, and pour it into the egg whites in a thin stream, blending continuously.

  3. Continue to mix for about 20 minutes until the nougat begins to thicken to the consistency of soft dough. Lightly grease a 9x9-inch baking dish. Mix in almonds and press nougat into prepared dish and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes until firm.

  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the caramels with the remaining water. Pour melted caramel over nougat. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  5. Cut the chilled candy into 14 oblong bars with a sharp knife. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Dip bars into melted chocolate, let cool for 2 hours on a wire rack or waxed paper.

  6. Serve and enjoy.
