Snickery Squares

I felt like taking a short break from Baking Chez Moi, so I started going through Baking: From My Home To Yours. I came across the recipe for Snicker Squares and immediately started drooling. It might have been the mention of dulce de leche or it might have been the candied peanuts. Either way, both the photo and the recipe caught my attention and made me want to eat it.

First up was making the base of the squares. Like the Crispy-Topped Brown Sugar Bars, the base was like large shortbread cookie. I just baked this and let it cool while I started the next steps.P1100642

Next up was candying peanuts. There’s something about candied nuts that I can’t resist. It could be the additional crunch you get, the extra sweetness that goes so well with the saltiness from the nuts, or it could be the golden color from all of that caramelizing.P1100641

Now that I had my base and candied peanuts ready, it was time to start assembling. I spread some dulce de leche on top of the shortbread base and then put the candied peanuts on top of that.P1100643

After the candied nuts were laid on the layer of dulce de leche, I spread some melted chocolate on top of that layer.P1100648

Then I added more candied peanuts on top of the chocolate layer and stuck it in the fridge for a few hours. After taking this photo, I decided to add more candied peanuts…because they’re just so good!

They turned out well! The hardest part was cutting these.  I didn’t use a warm knife to cut through the chocolate, so some of the top layer cracked. It still tasted great, though!P1100659
