Homemade Snickers Bars

Need a Snickers? Why wait? Make up a batch! I cannot believe I didn't take a picture of these! I paired these with my molasses sugar cookies for neighbor treats this year and it was perfect. These snickers bars are so rich you just need tiny squares to serve, so they go a long way. There are 5 layers, so this recipe will look a little different...

1st layer
2 c. milk chocolate chips
1/2 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. peanut butter
Press into a 9x13 baking dish. Cool in fridge while making next layer.

2nd layer

In a saucepan, combine:
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter/margarine
1/2 c. milk
Boil for 5 minutes, then add:
1/2 c. marshmallow cream
1/2 c. peanut butter
Pour this layer over the first layer.

3rd layer
Sprinkle 2 c. peanuts in pan.

4th layer
Melt 40 caramels and 2 tablespoons of hot water in microwave or on stove. Pour over peanuts.

5th layer
Repeat the first layer. Chill in fridge until solid. Cut into small squares.
