Ingredients

1/4 c
karo syrup
2 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
vanilla
2 Tbsp
peanut butter
pinch
salt
3 c
confectioners' sugar
35
caramels
1 c
peanuts, chopped
12 oz
chocolate morsels

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla, peanut butter and salt until creamy. Mix in the confectioners' sugar. When the mixture is very thick, press it into a lightly greased 9x9 inch pan. Refrigerate. Melt the caramels in a double boiler over hot water. When soft, mix in the peanuts. Pour over the mixture in the pan. Refrigerate. Melt the chocolate in a microwave oven set on high for 2 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking time. When the mixture in the pan is firm, cut it into 2x1 inch bars. Spear a bar on a fork and dip into the melted chocolate. Tap to knock off any excess drips. If you like, roll into finely chopped peanuts. Place on waxed paper to cool to room temperature.
