I used Milky Ways instead of Snickers because my kids don't like the crunch of peanuts. I felt it was better to bake them for 15 minutes then put the Milky Ways in and stick the pan back in the oven for 1 minute to melt the chocolate. It was easier to stick the M&M's on this way. Fun looking dessert and tastes great!
