Layers are made with confectioners' sugar and corn syrup topped with melted caramels and peanuts, then chilled, cut into bars and dipped in milk chocolate.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 cup peanut butter
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 35 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
- 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
In a mixer, beat corn syrup, butter, vanilla, peanut butter and salt until smooth. Beat in confectioners' sugar a little at a time until fully incorporated and mixture forms a thick dough. Press into a 9x9 inch pan. Chill in refrigerator.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt caramels. Stir in peanuts. Pour over chilled layer and return to refrigerator until firm, 15 to 30 minutes.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips. Cut chilled mixture into bars and dip in melted chocolate with a fork. Let cool on waxed paper at room temperature, or for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
