Chocolate Caramel Bars

Chocolate Caramel CandyA foray into my recipe books for something new and different this Christmas yielded me this wonderful treat.
It just might be my new Christmas favorite! But with a layer of caramel and peanuts sandwiched between layers of chocolate…what’s not to love!

The only downside was the fact that I needed to use the double boiler for all three layers, so it needed to be washed each time.

But they are so yummy- it was well worth the trouble!

Chocolate Caramel Bars

Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with a 1 tablespoon shortening in a double boiler over hot water.

Spread in a foil-lined 8-inch square dish. Chill until firm.

Melt 30 caramels with 3 tablespoons of butter in double boiler over boiling water. When melted, stir in 1 cup of chopped peanuts.

Spread over the chocolate layer and refrigerator 15 minutes or until partially set.

Melt another 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of shortening in double boiler over boiling water. Spread over caramel layer.

Chill until firm. Cut into small squares to serve.

Store well covered in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!
