Homemade Snickers

Wind has been caught at Jack's work of the homemade candy bars we've made like Twix and Butterfingers.  At the request of his coworkers, we made a trio of desserts, this time including Snickers.  I've pointed out to Jack that he may climb the corporate ladder by appealing to people's sweet tooth.  One way or another I guess.  At least it's honest.  Or is it considered a bribe?
Whatever works, right?
Ingredients:
Layer 1: Chocolate
8 oz milk chocolate
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 Tablespoon shortening

Melt the ingredients together until smooth.  In a 9x9 pan lined with aluminum foil, spritz with cooking spray.  Pour in the chocolate, smooth and place in fridge.

Layer 2: Nougat
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff (here's a recipe if you're out)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup salted peanuts

Melt butter in a saucepan then add the milk and sugar.  Bring to a boil and stir constantly to avoid scorching.  Boil five minutes, then add the fluff, peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.  Remove from heat and pour over set chocolate layer.  Top with peanuts and return to the refrigerator to cool.

Layer 3: Caramel
14 oz caramels
1 Tablespoon heavy cream

Layer 4: Chocolate
8 oz milk chocolate
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 Tablespoon shortening

Melt the ingredients together until smooth.  In a 9x9 pan lined with aluminum foil, spritz with cooking spray.  Pour in the chocolate, smooth and place in fridge.  Cut into squares and serve.
Enjoy!
