10 Lords a Leaping

I guess I lost the last two posts for some reason or other, but to fill you in I wanted to blog a post from now until Christmas, titling each one for the "Twelve Days of Christmas".

So that being said, here's a new favorite square that tastes like a Snickers bar, but with a super-yummy homemade flavor that your taste testers will want more of.

Homemade Snickers
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
1 14 oz package caramels
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter 
1 cup of sugar

1. Melt 1 cup of the milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup of butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup of the peanut butter. Spread on bottom of foil lined 9x13 pan. Put in freezer to set.
2. Boil butter, sugar, and evaporated milk for 5 minutes. Take off of heat and add marshmallow creme, 1/4 cup of peanut butter, vanilla, and peanuts. Pour over chilled chocolate layer and return to freezer.
3. Melt caramels and whipping creme over double boiler until smooth; pour over nougat layer and return that to the freezer.
4. Melt together the last cup of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter and spread on top of caramel layer. Chill in fridge. 
5. Lift out the foil and gently peel off of Snickers. Cut into tiny squares and keep in the fridge in air tight container. If you keep it in plain sight there won't be any left so hide it. Seriously.

  1. I look forward to making these next year. I made your truffles and holiday brownie this year and was really impressed. So was my husband, who is usually unimpressed when I try new recipes. It's nice to bake something from a recipe that you know is tried, tested and true!

  2. Awesome!! Love it! Merry Christmas to you both, and your beautiful family
