This will change your life!

OK-maybe that's a little too strong of a statement but these are seriously delicious!

Every year I make these candies and they never last long. They look complicated but they really aren't- just be prepared- once you try these you will want to make them every year!

Chocolate Caramel Candy:
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1/4 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
Filling:
1/4 c. margarine
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. evaporated milk
1-1/2 c. marshmallow creme
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Caramel layer:
1 pkg caramels
1/4 c. whipping cream
Icing:
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1/4 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

Combine the first three ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Spread onto the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Refrigerate until set. For filling, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar and milk, bring to a boil. Boil and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the marshmallow creme, peanut butter and vanilla. Spread over first layer. Refrigerate. Combine the caramels and cream in a saucepan, stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Spread over filling. Refrigerate.
In another saucepan, combine chips and peanut butter, stir over low heat until melted. Pour over caramel layer. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour


For the steps where you're melting the chips-and the caramel layer- I use the microwave. The layers don't take long to set- I just go from one layer to the next and by the time I finish 1 step the layer is set enough to be topped. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
