Homemade Snickers Bars

Let me tell you these bars are fabulous. I mean who doesn't like chocolate peanut butter and caramel. The do taste very similar to a Snickers candy bar. Now these have a few steps since you have to let each layer set but they are easy to make. Don't be discouraged by the steps go make these today you won't be disappointed!!!

Snickers Bars

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

Place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave, in 30 second increments stirring until melted and smooth. Spread into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Put in fridge until set.

Second layer:
4 T. butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup marshmallow creme
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chopped peanuts

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add in the sugar and milk and bring to a boil. Cook for 3 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and quickly stir in the marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir in the peanuts. Pour over the chocolate layer and spread evenly. Place in fridg until set.

Third Layer:
14 oz bag caramels or 11 oz bag caramel bits(but caramel bits are way more expensive so I buy the caramels instead but do what you like)
2 T evaporated milk

Place in a microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave(30 second increments, stirring)until melted and smooth. Spread over marshmallow creme layer. and PLace in frige until set.

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

Melt in microwave like the first layer and spread over top of the caramel. Plave in fridge till set. Cut into squares and enjoy!!

Note: best served cold. so they aren't a complete sticky mess.Store leftovers in fridge if there are any!!!
