Holy cow these are good!

makes one 913 pan

bottom chocolate layer

5 2oz cubes of almond bark

1/4 cup peanut butter

Thoroughly grease you baking pan. Like alot, like Clark Griswold going sledding greased  Melt ingredients together in a microwave, then pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.


nougat layer

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup evaporated milk

1 7 oz jar marshmallow fluff

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 1/2 cup salted peanuts roughly chopped

1 tsp vanilla extract

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in sugar and milk, stirring until dissolved and bring to a boil. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in fluff, peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Turn off heat and fold in peanuts, then pour over bottom chocolate layer. Let cool completely.

caramel layer

1 14-ounce bag of caramels (about 40 individually wrapped candies)

1/4 cup evaporated milk

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth.  Pour over nougat layer and let cool completely.
I only had 8 oz of caramel that's why there's not enough to cover the nougat layer.

Top chocolate layer

5 2oz cubes almond bark

1/4 cup peanut butter

Melt ingredients together in microwave, then pour over caramel and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving, then cut as desired.
I popped mind in the freezer between layers so it would harden up nicely.
Enjoy!!!

Oh my. A 9" by 13" Snickers bar is the most amazing and dangerous thing I've ever seen.

OMG, those look divine! 

As for the Corelle, I tell brides to avoid it because it NEVER breaks and you'll be stuck with what you liked when you were a naive child bride, not the sophisticate you turn into when you hit 40/50/60.  *snort*  Yeah, once my kids got beyond dish-breaking age I ditched the stuff at Goodwill and got the breakable stuff so I could change dishes when my taste changed.  "Oh, honey, look how many plates are chipped or cracked.  We need new ones."

Looks so good!

I have those dishes, but in blue.  Hand down from my mother-in-law (previously her mom's, etc etc etc).

I like the breakable dish idea for new tastes....
