Add to Grocery List

    caramels ( i used one 11 oz. package and about 1/3 of another)

How to Make Microwave Peanut Caramel Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat caramels, water, and 1/2 cup of the peanut butter on HIGH for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir well and microwave 1-2 minutes longer or until melted. Stir well.
  2. Add cereal and peanuts; stir until coated.
    Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. Set aside.
  3. In another microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips, butter, and remaining peanut butter on HIGH for 30-60 seconds, or until melted. Stir well.
    Spread evenly over the cereal mixture.
    Refrigerate before cutting.
    Enjoy!




    Notes:
    Microwave ovens vary, so cooking time may as well.
    I keep these in the fridge, because at room temp they tend to get too soft.
