Childhood Favorite, Grown-Up Bliss: How to Make Candy Bars
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.
Each layer is made separately and poured into its own lightly oiled, rimmed sheet pan to cool.
Gutman lays the caramel atop the nougat, then presses gently so they adhere.
A supersharp, oiled knife and a quick hand make for neat bars.
Each bar is dipped in melted chocolate before being set on parchment paper.
The Finished Product
These finished snacker bars taste so amazing, you could serve them at your next dinner party.
