Snickers Candy Bars

I got a little tired of looking at chicken and beans, so I decided to post something sweet and scrumptious. These take a little more effort to make than some desserts (as in time, not in the ease of making), but so worth it! Found on internet somewhere--can't remember where!


First Layer:

1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

In a small saucepan over low heat, add milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter. Stir often until completely melted and smooth. Pour mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13" baking pan lightly coated with nonstick spray. Using a spatula, spread the mixture to an even layer and place in the refrigerator until set.

Second Layer:
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped salted peanuts

In a medium heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Mix in sugar and evaporated milk. Once it comes to a boil, let cook 5 minutes while stirring. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in marshmallow creme, peanut butter and vanilla. Stir in peanuts. Pour over the set chocolate layer and gently spread mixture in an even layer. Place in the refrigerator until set.

Third Layer:
14 ounce package caramel cubes
1/4 cup heavy cream

Place the unwrapped caramel cubes and heavy cream in a medium saucepan. Place over low heat and stir until the mixture has completely melted and is smooth. Pour in the pan and quickly spread to an even layer. Place in the refrigerator until set.

Fourth Layer:
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

In a small saucepan over low heat, add milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter. Stir often until completely melted and smooth. Pour over the third layer and spread to an even layer. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.
