I love candy bars. I love Snickers Bars. I don’t eat them anymore. But I don’t mind, because I know how to make my own delicious chocolates! I use the chocolate recipe from my cookbook, but you can use melted semi-sweet chocolate. For the caramel, the recipe is also in my cookbook or you can use a different caramel recipe or purchase pre-made caramels. I purchased the chocolate mold at a local craft store- very inexpensive.
Here is a photo in progress to give you a sense of how these are assembled:
Chocolate Bar Recipe
1/2 cup melted chocolate (approximate amount)
1/3 cup peanut butter (estimate) crunchy, lightly salted, all natural peanut butter
1/4 cup caramel (use the recipe from my cookbook in the Turtle recipe, but cook it for less time so it is looser)
Freeze the chocolate mold.
Pour a bit of chocolate into the mold and place it in the freezer for about 5 minutes to set.
Add about a teaspoon of peanut butter to each section. Press a divot into the peanut butter and fill that with caramel. (More caramel is tasty but messy… I go for maximum caramel personally!)
Place two peanuts on top of each section and place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Pour chocolate over everything and once again place it in the freezer to set.
I store these in the refrigerator and try not to eat them all in one day.
