Homemade Snickers Bars

I made these bars for my 'birthday cake' and took them to Financial Peace to celebrate.  They were much easier to make than I thought they would be and the taste was spot on!
Homemade Snickers Bars

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
7 ounces marshmallow fluff
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups Imperial Sugar Confectioners Powdered Sugar
1 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts
11 ounces caramels
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1. Line an 11X 7-inch baking pan with parchment paper.  Beth sprayed well with Pam

2. Place 1 cup of chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons of peanut butter in a heatproof bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds and stir until smooth and combined. Microwave for few more seconds if needed.

3. Pour melted chocolate in prepared pan and spread evenly. Place pan in freezer for 2-3 minutes or until hardened.

4. Meanwhile, in a clean bowl place marshmallow fluff, 1/4 cup peanut butter and powdered sugar. With a wooden spoon or spatula stir until it forms a soft dough. (Can be done in a mixing bowl using dough hook as well).  Beth 'kneaded' it to get it to come together.

5. Remove “dough” from bowl and press with fingers on top of chocolate layer.

6. Sprinkle peanuts on top, gently pressing them in.

7. In a small saucepan add the caramels and heavy cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted. Immediately pour over peanuts, spreading it all over with the back on a spoon.

8. Refrigerate for 5 minutes until set.

9. In a heatproof bowl, melt remaining chocolate chips and peanut butter. Pour over caramel layer, spreading evenly.

10. Place pan in fridge for 10 minutes until chocolate is set.

11. With a sharp knife, cut into bars.
