TWD: Snickery Squares

I got pudding on our rotation -again.  Last month's pudding wasn't a big hit.  The pudding for this month was a butterscotch pudding that boasts about its alcohol content.  Not really my kind of sweet.  Its ok to choose one that's already been done and I've been dying to try the Snickery Squares, so here they are!!!

Let me just say:  YUMMY!!!!!  These had 27 simple steps that took me nearly 2 days (I'm slower than most and I was making several other goodies in between), but we loved them.  My husband couldn't top eating them.   I couldn't stop eating them.  I think I'll need to stop baking for a while after Christmas.  I'm pretty sure Nate (18 months) only ate cookies today.

I started with the shortbread crust.  Zip through the food processor, press into the pan and bake.

I should have taken more pictures, but my kitchen was a very busy place today.  The next step is to caramelize the peanuts, which was actually pretty quick and simple.  

Then spread dulce de leche strait from the can onto the shortbread.  Wow!!!  

Sprinkle 1/2 the peanuts.

Make the chocolate mixture.  Spread on top. 

Sprinkle with other 1/2 of the peanuts, which are now chopped.

And voila!!  Snickery Squares!!

If you're dying to try some, come on over.  I doubled it, so I have plenty left.  If you want to make some yourself, you can go here for the complete recipe.  I also did some other Christmas baking so we could take the kids out caroling.  I made  Grandma's sugar cookies, Rugelach, Candy cane cookies, peanut butter chocolate rice crispy treats, and chocolate chip cookies in addition to the Snickery Squares.  It was a fun and yummy night!!

Your plates look delish! I wish I were your neighbor. :) The Snickery Squares look great and sound like a total Josh thing so I'll have to give them a try.

I'm trying to decide if I should make these. I've made myself sick on so many holiday goodies yet I can't bear the thought of not making these. Maybe I'll make a half pan, eat a few and take them to another family.
