Snickers Candy Bar

1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar
35 individual Kraft caramels
1 cup dry−roasted unsalted peanuts
1 − 12 oz. bag milk−chocolate chips

With the mixer on high speed, combine the corn syrup, butter, vanilla, peanut butter, and salt until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar.

When the mixture has the consistency of dough, remove it from the bowl with your hands and press it into a lightly greased 9×9−inch pan. Put in the refrigerator.

Melt the caramels in a small pan over low heat. When the caramel is soft, mix in the peanuts. Pour the mixture over the refrigerated nougat in the pan. Let this cool in the refrigerator.

When the refrigerated mixture is firm, melt the chocolate over low heat in a double boiler or in a microwave oven set on high for 2 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking time. When the mixture in the pan has hardened, cut it into 2×1−inch sections.

Set each chunk onto a fork and dip into the melted chocolate. Tap the fork against the side of the bowl or pan to knock off any excess chocolate. Then place the chunks on waxed paper to cool at room temperature, or refrigerate for quicker cooling.

    Homemade snickers… good thing I don’t have the time to make these because Honey would gain so much weight.

    This looks amazing! I have the hardest time finding those Kraft caramels except for fall through winter.

    This sounds amazingly sinful. Wow. I think I will have to file this away and maybe make some at Christmas time…even though I’m craving them now. 🙂
