Ingredients

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips divided 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg white room temperature 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter salted peanuts
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 11 oz. bag of caramels
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Prepare an 8x8 square baking dish by lining with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat 1 cup of the chocolate chips in 30 second increments, stirring between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Spread melted chocolate evenly into baking dish and place in the freezer for at least 10 minutes (or while preparing nougat) to harden.
  • In a small saucepan, heat granulated sugar, corn syrup, and water over medium heat. Fit the saucepan with a candy thermometer and heat until temperature reaches 275 degrees.
  • While sugar mixture is heating, take out your mixing bowl and beat egg whites and salt together using the whisk attachment of a standing mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • When sugar mixture reaches 275 degrees, remove it from heat.
  • Working quickly, turn off the mixer that is beating egg whites. Add approximately a 1 tablespoon drizzle into the egg whites. Turn the mixer onto high speed and mix until sugar syrup is fully incorporated.
  • Continue adding one tablespoon of sugar syrup at a time to the egg white mixture. It is very important to stop the mixer while you add each drizzle of syrup so that it does not get caught by the whisk in motion.
  • As soon as all of the sugar syrup has been incorporated into the egg whites, the mixture should resemble a thick white paste, similar to a very thick marshmallow creme.
  • Working quickly, use a spatula coated in non-stick cooking spray to mix the peanut butter into the creme mixture to form the nougat.
  • Spread the nougat evenly over the chilled chocolate layer in the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the peanuts (whole) over the nougat and press them gently into the nougat.
  • In another microwave safe bowl, combine the caramels and heavy cream. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring between, until the caramels are melted and the cream has been fully incorporated.
  • Pour the caramel over the peanut layer in the baking dish.
  • Place dish into the refrigerator to set the caramel (about 5 minutes).
  • Melt the other 1 cup of chocolate chips and spread over the chilled caramel layer.
  • Chill again until chocolate layer is set.
  • Run a warm knife around the edge of the snickers bars and lift from the baking dish using the parchment paper lining.
  • Cut into bars and serve! Keep the bars refrigerated until ready to serve.
