"I love all different kinds of candy bars!"

Serves 36 servings | Prep Time 14 minutes | Cook Time 2 hours

Ingredients

2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1-1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

CARAMEL:
2 cups packed brown sugar
1-1/4 cups corn syrup
1 cup butter, cubed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 pounds milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped


. Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with 2 teaspoons butter; set aside.


In a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, melt remaining butter.


Stir in sugar and evaporated milk.


Bring to a boil; cook and stir 5 minutes longer.


Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes.


Stir in chocolate chips until melted.


Stir in marshmallow creme and vanilla until smooth.


Spread into prepared pan; set aside.


In another large heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt.


Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.


Cook 4 minutes longer without stirring.


Remove from the heat; gradually stir in condensed milk.


Return to the heat.


Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 244° (firm-ball stage).


Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.


Pour over chocolate mixture (do not scrape saucepan). Refrigerate until caramel is set, at least 2 hours.


Using foil, lift candy out of pan.


Gently peel off foil; cut into 3-1/4-in. x 1-in. bars.


In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth.


Dip bars in coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate until set.


Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.

Notes

I love candy and new recipes.

I had the inspiration from tasting a snickers bar.

I am a intermediate baker and cooker, so I enjoy working with food and recipes to make them better tasting than both store brand and shipped goods from the big name companies!

A dash of local for every season
