This fabulous candy recipe came about whenI decided to experiment with variations on my recipe for Cherry Mountain CandySquares. It was an instantaneous hit with my family and friendsand I’m positive will be with yours.
Another delicious recipe from our Family-FavoriteRecipes Collection.
Recipe: Caramel MountainCandy Squares
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 (11.5-ounce) package premium white chocolate chips*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 (11-ounce) package Kraft brand softcaramel bits**
1 (11.5-ounce) package milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup (6 ounces) peanut butter, creamy or crunchy***
1 1/4 cups salted, dry-roasted peanuts, coarsely crushed****
1 tablespoon butter
Makes 117 (1-inch) squares.
*I use (and prefer) NESTL ®TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels because they melt far betterthan another popular brand of white chocolate chips that I’vetried…and they taste better.
**If you cannot find Kraft Soft CaramelBits, substitute with 11-ounces of their regular soft caramelsthat have been cut into bits by first quartering the squaresand then cutting the quarters in half with a pair of kitchenscissors (as was done for the batch in the photograph).
***I use natural-style peanut butter, howeverregular peanut butter works just as well.
****Tip: Place the peanuts in a large zipper-stylebag, removing as much air as possible, seal, and then use a rollingpin or kitchen mallet to coarsely crush.
