Billionaire Bars

December 19, 2010

Another one from Missy in the kitchen! These came in my box…they are…a billion times better than I can describe. Make them-you’ll see what I’m talking about!

Spray a 9×13 pan,or use quick release foil to line pan.

  • 14 oz. bag of caramels
  • 3-4 T. water
  • 1 1/2 C. peanuts,pulsed to rough chop in processor
  • 1C. rice krispie cereal
  • 3 C. good chocolate chips for dipping balls or bars
  • 2 t. shortening

Melt caramels with 3-4 tablespoons of water,until quite warm.

Add nuts and cereal.Mix fast to incorporate as mixture gets stiffer it makes it hard to incorporate evenly.

At this point you have a choice: you can roll them into one inch ish balls, or put them in the pan in one layer to cut into bars after cooled. Missy did bars,which is easier and faster than making the balls. Dump the mixture into the prepared pan, spray or butter your hands and press into pan as evenly as possible.

When set,cut into rectangles about one inch by two inches.

Melt chocolate chips with the shortening.Adding shortening to the chocolate makes it smoother and easier to work with and gives the chocolate a nice shine when it dries.

To dip the chocolate: Place a bar in the melted chocolate. Pick it up with a fork and allow excess to drip off or scrape it gently to make an even coating with a second fork.Transfer it back to fork one and place on waxed paper to cool.

I am going to have to make these-as ours from Missy- are gone!
