These Snickers Bars are wonderful! My good friend, Allison Tuttle, sent this recipe to me recently. And boy, is it great! Peanuts are my least favorite nut, but of course I like them in Snickers, so I wondered how I would like them in this. They were awesome, and made the dessert taste very much like Snickers. Give this a try! It is incredibly easy and a crowd pleaser. I served it with vanilla icecream, and everyone loved it. Be sure to make it a little early, like the recipe indicates, so that the caramel is set before you slice into it.
Let me know how it turns out for you! :)

1 box chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 14-oz package of caramels
1 cup peanuts
1 cup chocolate chips — or more…
Mix the chocolate cake mix, 3/4 cup melted butter, and 1/3 cup sweetened condensed
milk together. This mixture will be very thick. Spread 2/3 of this mixture into the bottom
of an ungreased, 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-10 minutes until set.
Unwrap the caramels and put in a microwave safe bowl. Add 1/3 cup sweetened
condensed milk to the caramels, and melt in microwave, 1 minute at a time until mixture
is completely melted and smooth.
Spread the chocolate chips on top of the cooked cake mixture. Spread/drizzle caramel
mixture on top of this. The caramel will be uneven. Sprinkle peanuts on top next. Then
put remaining cake mixture on top next. Again, this mixture is quite thick, so this will
also be uneven which is ok.
Bake at 350 for 16-20 minutes.
Let cool completely before cutting. This is important as the caramel makes it very difficult
to cut if still warm.
