- For the Caramel Layer
- In a medium sized bowl melt one stick of butter in the microwave (takes around 50 – 60 seconds) Add sweetened condensed milk, light corn syrup and light brown sugar and whisk until combined. Place caramel mixture in the microwave and cook on high for six minutes (you will know it is done when you place a dime sized amount into ice water and it forms a ball which you can roll in your fingers). You want it the consistency of peanut butter.
- Allow the caramel to cool in your mixing bowl for about 10-15 minutes so it is spreadable.
- Spread the caramel mixture over the peanut butter cereal mixture.
- For the Chocolate Layer
- Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler until smooth. (Do not use the microwave to melt your chocolate chips. It will pull the moisture from the chocolate and cause it to seize up).
- Once melted, spread over the caramel mixture.
- Slice and enjoy!
