What joy I had discovering that one could make a near-exact replica of my beloved Snickers bars at home! The nougat and caramel are lovingly encased by a rich milk chocolate coating and, studded with crunchy peanuts, makes a veritable party in your mouth.
This is one that needs to hide in the freezer or it will be gone before you know it. I also love this recipe because it's so easy to make--No baking! Whether you are looking for an amazing party dessert or just an amazing treat in general, look no further; I've got ya covered!
Coat a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray or vegetable oil; set aside.
==== FIRST LAYER ====
Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in small bowl.
Heat in microwave in two 30 second intervals; stirring after each interval.
Stir until creamy and pour in an even layer into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place pan in freezer.
==== SECOND LAYER ====
Melt the butter over medium heat in medium-size saucepan.
Stir in sugar and evaporated milk; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and immediately stir in marshmallow creme, peanut butter and vanilla.
Add peanuts and stir until combined.
Remove chocolate layer from freezer and pour mixture atop; spreading evenly. Place back in freezer.
==== THIRD LAYER ====
Add caramels and evaporated milk to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramel is melted and smooth.
Remove pan from freezer and pour caramel over the second layer. Place back in freezer.
==== FOURTH LAYER ====
Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small bowl.
Heat in microwave in two 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval.
Stir until creamy.
Make sure the caramel layer is firm before pouring on an even layer onto the top.
Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour and cut into squares when ready to serve. Keep refrigerated.
Caramel cubes usually only show up around Halloween, so you can just use the caramel squares that are on shelves year-round and put them on scale to measure 14oz (you'll probably need two bags). The milk chocolate chips are really sweet in this little dessert; if you want to mellow it out a bit you could do half semi-sweet or even dark chocolate for that matter.
