Snickers Fudge

If the picture doesn’t make you drool, I don’t know what will. 🙂 Gooey caramel, peanuts, chocolate . . . what more do you need in life?
I usually have pretty good self control when it comes to making desserts, but this was just too much. I found myself sneaking into the kitchen to cut off just one more little piece and before I knew it, a huge percentage of the pan was missing.
Every calorie was TOTALLY worth it.
So if you are looking for an amazing Christmas party dessert or just an amazing treat in general, look no further!

Ingredients

    First Layer:
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • Second Layer:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow crème
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup salted peanuts, chopped
  • Third Layer:
  • 14-oz. bag caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • Fourth Layer:
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Spray a 9x13" glass pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. FIRST LAYER: In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Heat in the microwave in 30 seconds and stir. Microwave again for 30 seconds and stir until creamy (you may need to repeat microwaving one more time). Pour in an even layer into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place pan in freezer.
  3. SECOND LAYER: In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the sugar and evaporated milk and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately stir in marshmallow crème, peanut butter and vanilla. Add peanuts and stir until incorporated. Pour mixture over the chocolate layer from the freezer and spread evenly. Place back in freezer.
  4. THIRD LAYER: Add the caramels and evaporated milk to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramel is melted and smooth (I have heard that you can also do this in the microwave, but I have never tried it). Remove pan from freezer and pour caramel over the second layer. Place back in freezer.
  5. FOURTH LAYER: In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Repeat microwaving intervals used for the first layer. Stir until creamy and pour in an even layer onto the top.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and cut into squares when ready to serve (they are super rich, so cut them small! I cut about 24 pieces and they were a good size!). Keep refrigerated.

  1. These are very good. My receipe for these also calls for I/2 cup butterscotch chips along with the choc. chips. Also I have what they call carmel bits by Kraft company, no caramels to unwrap, just melt these tiny little bits, lots faster. Found in the choc. chip isle in our store.

  2. These were easy to make and came out delicious, but were quite difficult to cut. They were really hard when they were straight out of the freezer, and then became sort of soft and gooey once they had been out for a while. Any tips for making it easier to cut them?
  3. Or could simmer the caramel longer, so more moisture is gone. Or simmer hotter, so it is harder caramel. Or instead of a quarter cup of Evaporated Milk, could use a little water to mix the caramel together then the water will steam away. ( then u got plain caramel ) Or serve them from the refrigerator. Or add some flour. Or serve them in a vessel.... like diced, then dipped in chocolate. Or serve them with ice cream if u can't beat it.
  4. I made these 12-5-15, soooo good. I lined the 13 x 9 with parchment paper after greasing the pan just a teense so the paper would stay put. You do have to work fast when you spread a hot layer onto a frozen layer because that frozen layer solidifies the hot layer fast! Left them in the freezer after putting on the last layer. My kids were here too, and we'd cut off a bit, then stick them back in the freezer. They make me think of choc. covered cherries: You bite into them and you might drip something so watch it! Plus the chocolate on top and bottom melts, so you do have to lick your fingers a bit. Not a recipe to take to a party but I'll work on it. My marshmallow layer was just a bit grainy, I might have to work on perfecting that problem... But the flavor combo was WOW.
