homemade fudge

December 18th, 2004 at 04:04 pm

I made a second batch of snickers fudge today to give out as holiday gifts. it is decadent and time consuming, but worth it.

I brought lunch to work every day last week. today I splurged a bit and got an egg nog shake at mcdonalds, some gorgeous blue gift bows, and the latest john grisham novel, but little things make me happy. unfortunately they also add up.

I am still going to make my goals...but January is going to suck. there will be no "fun money" next month!

    SNICKERS FUDGE

    BOTTOM LAYER
    1 cup milk chocolate chips
    1/4 cup butterscotch chips
    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

    FILLING LAYER
    1/4 cup butter
    1 cup white sugar
    1/4 cup evaporated milk
    1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups chopped salted peanuts

    CARAMEL LAYER
    1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
    1/4 cup whipping cream

    TOP LAYER
    1 cup milk chocolate chips
    1/4 cup butterscotch chips
    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

    DIRECTIONS:
    Lightly grease a 9x13 inch dish.

    Bottom Layer: Combine 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook and stir until melted and smooth. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Refrigerate until set.

    Filling Layer: In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, and let boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in marshmallow creme, 1/4 cup peanut butter and vanilla. Fold in peanuts. Spread over bottom layer, return to refrigerator until set. (note: Measure out ingredients before beginning this step and WORK FAST once you take it off the heat. It hardens quickly.)

    Caramel Layer: Combine caramels and cream in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook and stir until melted and smooth. Spread over filling. Refrigerate until set.

    Top Layer: In a small saucepan over low heat, combine 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips, and 1/4 cup peanut butter. Cook and stir until melted and smooth. Spread over caramel layer. Chill 1 hour before cutting into 1 inch squares. Let thaw on countertop for a few minutes before attempting to cut, as fudge will be quite hard.
