Ice Cream Social!
OK who does not like a Snicker candy bar? I have not ever heard someone tell me they don't like Snickers. Well I love them and I decided to create a tasty ice cream sundae out of a homemade snicker candy bar. YUM!
I decided to pay homage to Snickers by using peanuts and almonds.
I truly know what your thinking and yes, you are correct. I already broke my new year's resolutions one week in!
I needed a way to get the candy bar not to set up to hard so I doubled the chocolate on top, (yes I did, guilty) which prevented it from setting up and allowed me to create my glorious snicker caramel for topping my sundae.
This filling of hot caramel, salted peanuts and sliced almonds can be poured directly on top of a sundae without doing anything else, it's that good.
Get that spoon and eat it up! You might want to share this dessert because it is rich.
