Picture Perfect Caramel Peanut Chocolate Bars

Obviously I'm into food. But if you haven't already figured it out, I'm also REALLY into junk. So whenever possible my posts will combine those two loves. One way to do that is by creatively displaying food using junk.

Vintage cameras make wonderful display pieces.

If it comes with a tripod, it will provide height. All you have to do is figure out how to deal with that nub.

A little cardboard and duct tape did the trick here.

It won't last real long, but neither will the bars!

Picture Perfect! They look good enough to eat!

Caramel Peanut Chocolate Bars
Mix together by hand:
1 pkg. German Chocolate cake mix
3/4 C. oleo -- melted
1/3 C. evaporated milk
Melt together:
1 14 oz. pkg. caramels
1/3 C. evaporated milk
Grease & flour a 9 x 13 pan. Press 1/2 of dough into pan. Bake at 350 for 6 minutes. Sprinkle 1 C. chocolate chips and 1 C. Spanish peanuts over warm crust. Over that spread the caramel mixture. Crumble remaining dough on top. Return to oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool slightly and refrigerate to set caramel.
