Ingredients
  • 35 Nilla Vanilla Wafers (Mr. Christie's)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups melting chocolate (pink)
  • 1 cup candied chocolate, coarsely chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a 9x13" pan with parchment paper and place vanilla wafers in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. Melt butter and sugar together in a sauce pot to make the caramel, bringing to a low boil for 6 minutes; don't let it burn but don't stir.
  4. Pour the caramel mixture over the vanilla wafers evenly and bake in the oven for 6 minutes.
  5. While the pan is in the oven, melt the chocolate wafers in a double broiler on medium low heat, stirring often to melt through. If you prefer the microwave, melt chocolate on medium high heat in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until fully melted and ready to pour.
  6. Remove wafer pan from the oven and let sit to cool 5 minutes before pouring chocolate over the top. Pour the chocolate to evenly cover the top of the wafers and caramels, spreading it evenly over the surface.
  7. Before the chocolate begins to harden, sprinkle your candied chocolate chunks over the top.
  8. Place pan into the freezer or fridge until completely cool and hardened.
  9. Break or cut into smaller pieces, approximately 20 pieces at 2-3" per piece.
