Copycat Candy Bar Recipes that Are Better than the Original
1. Three Musketeers Candy Bar
Three Musketeers has always been my favorite candy bar (and my grandma’s, too!). Did you know that originally the candy bar was packaged as three mini candy bars? The flavors were, chocolate, vanilla, and, strawberry but later on in years, they just made one larger candy bar with the chocolate flavor which was the favorite out of the three.
Even with all the different flavors that have been made with time, chocolate still remains to be the most commonly made and eaten. This copycat version looks even better than the kind you buy in the store. You can’t go wrong with lots of marshmallow creme and chocolate!
