Candy Bar Recipe


June is National Candy Month. To honor this, I decided to try a recipe for Candy Bar Squares found on www.companyscoming.com.

Candy Bar Squares

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup margarine (or butter)
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup marshmallow creme
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
40 caramels
2 1/2 tbsp. Water

1. Heat both chips in large heavy saucepan on lowest heat, stirring often, until chips are almost melted. Do not overheat. Remove from heat. Stir until
smooth. Spread about 1/2 of mixture evenly in greased or foil-lined 9 x 13 inch (22 x 33 cm) pan. Let stand until firm.

2. Heat and stir sugar, margarine and milk in heavy medium saucepan on medium until boiling. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring often. Spread evenly over chip layer.

3. Sprinkle first amount of peanuts over top.

4. Heat and stir peanut butter in small heavy saucepan on lowest heat until melted. Remove from heat. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla. Stir until
smooth. Spoon mixture in dabs, using 1 tsp. (5 mL) for each, over peanuts.
Sprinkle second amount of peanuts over top.

5. Heat and stir caramels and water in heavy medium saucepan on lowest heat
until smooth. Spread evenly over peanuts. Reheat remaining 1/2 of chip
mixture if necessary until spreading consistency. Spread evenly over caramel.
Chill until firm. This cuts into 54 squares.

Although the finished product tasted great there were some negatives. This recipe seemed to unnecessarily combine every great candy bar out there into one recipe. After washing all 4 extremely gooey saucepans I wondered why I had not just gone to the store to buy a candy bar. If I make this again I will definitely make adjustments. Next time I will eliminate a layer or two. I might make the candy bar without either the caramel or without the peanut butter and marshmallow creme layer.
