The Trick to Treats
Jen King (left) and Liz Gutman know that a cool room—and a cool temperament—is essential to candy-making. Here, they re-create one of the confections they sell at their handmade-candy company, Liddabit—layers of peanut-filled caramel and nougat enrobed in chocolate, which they call the Snacker.

Melted caramel being poured onto sheet pan
Step 1
Each layer is made separately and poured into its own lightly oiled, rimmed sheet pan to cool.

Caramel laid on top of nougat
Step 2
Gutman lays the caramel atop the nougat, then presses gently so they adhere.

Cutting nougat and caramel into bars
Step 3
A supersharp, oiled knife and a quick hand make for neat bars.

Dipping bar into chocolate
Step 4
Each bar is dipped in melted chocolate before being set on parchment paper.
