Unfortunately, you cannot see someone else’s Snapchat best friend from your Snapchat account. There is no such option to do see that. The security and integrity of Snapchat are so strong, that only concerned people can see friends, best friends, connected people, etc, and the rest, no one can see. 

However, if you have that person’s Snapchat or phone in your hand, then this is very much possible.  If you have that person’s Snapchat log-in credential or phone, whose Snapchat best friend you want to see, then, open his/her ‘Chats’ tab on Snapchat and observe the “Emoji” in front of the names of people on the chat list. Whosoever was having emoji in front of his name, then, he is that person’s Snapchat best friend. 

Emoji appear in front of the name, with whom you share snaps every day, chat, send messages, photos, videos, etc., as you do with your best friend in real life.
