Condensed Caramel Snack Bars
Snack Bars were made this week with peanut butter shortbread, topped with Sweetened Condensed Milk cooked into caramel and topped with chopped peanuts, raisin and chocolate morsels.

The recipe is very much like this one with the chocolate topping omitted and peanut butter added to dough mixture halving with butter.
