Homemade Snickers Bar

When I was a little girl, I didn't like swimming. But there I was in swimming club because after my swim session I was allowed anything I wanted from the vending machine in the reception. It would only ever be a chocolate bar, a Snickers. Oh if I could only apply this method of treats after exercise to my adult life, sigh. I feel all spiritual, like I want to bow down to that tower... a pure indulgent gooey, crunchy stack of naughtiness. I actually made these for ice cream I'm making later so I made the top layer quite thick, if you're making them as whole bars I would suggest a thin layer so it's easy to slice without the chocolate cracking.  
 Mixed with peanut butter
 spread onto bottom of tin
 Mixing salted peanuts into the nougat
 Pour onto chilled choc layer
 Spread caramel onto cooled nougat layer
 Finally, dark choc poured onto the cooled caramel
Holy Moly, I made some squares and have stuck them in the freezer, they are incredible frozen! But alas, the rest is getting chopped up for icecream. It's a messy job but someone's got to do it.

Georgie- haha giant maltesers would be fantastic!
Anna - I just made a vanilla custard based ice cream and stirred through the snickers all chopped up :)
