milk chocolate chips
creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
chopped salted peanuts
individually wrapped caramels
I've made this recipe lots of times and although I would agree it is time consuming, everyone loves it when I make it.
Just one tip to shorten the time a little. I use the microwave to melt the chocolate layers and the caramel layer. Just check your chips after every 30 seconds (stirring each time you check). Do not overcook chocolate in the microwave!
I hope this helps!
WAYYYYY TOO SWEET!!!! I didn't have a problem taking the candy out of the pan, however, it is rather thin and messy. We had to eat it with a fork, my girls who are big chocolate lovers, didn't even finish their small piece. I won't be making this again, but I would recommend that others try a graham cracker crust or something that allows this to be more manageable. Each layer tasted great as I was making it, but all together is just too much for me.
The candy was delicious, but a bit messy. Since it must be kept refridgerated, if it was not consumed immediately, the caramel would begin to melt if at room temperature for more then 5 minutes. I will make again for a party at home, but not to take to work, school , etc due to the gooey-ness.
I enjoyed this. As far as getting the bottom layer up, I found that leaving it out of the fridge at room temp for 20 minutes helped. I also wish the chocolate layers were a bit thicker. The caramel oozed out a lot when left out to serve at my gathering. Maybe next time, I won't use quite as much of the whipping cream, then it will be thicker and hold its shape. Overall, it was good.
Yummy! It is a lot of work but it is worth all of it. Next time I make it though I am going to cut back on the peanut butter.
This is an outstanding recipe.
I was able to make the bottom layer and the top layer by melting in the microwave for several minutes on defrost.
This candy makes everyone rave and ask for your recipe ! Thanks Merry CHRISTmas
This dessert was soooo good!!! Everyone loved it and asked for the recipie. I loved it myself. This stuff is very rich so make sure you cut the peices very small. This will definitely be something I make every Thanksgiving. And a lot in-between too!!! :o) Thanks for sharing!
OH MY GOD. No one could stop eating this stuff! I've resigned myself to only making it once a year around the holidays so I have the rest of the year to lose the weight I gain by eating half the tray! This is probably the best candy I've ever made. Everyone raved about it.
