    1. Prepare the Base:
      • In a mixing bowl, combine the crushed digestive biscuits with melted butter until the crumbs are evenly coated.
      • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a lined 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) square baking pan. Place it in the refrigerator to set while you prepare the caramel layer.
    2. Make the Salted Caramel Layer:
      • In a saucepan over low heat, melt the soft caramel candies or caramel sauce with unsalted butter, stirring continuously.
      • Once melted, add the sea salt and heavy cream. Stir until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Adjust the salt to your taste preference.
      • Pour the caramel layer over the chilled biscuit base. Return it to the refrigerator while you prepare the peanut topping.
    3. Prepare the Peanut Topping:
      • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the milk chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
      • Combine the roughly chopped roasted peanuts with the melted chocolate, ensuring the peanuts are well coated.
    4. Add the Peanut Topping:
      • Spread the chocolate-covered peanuts evenly over the caramel layer in the baking pan.
      • Press the peanut layer gently to adhere it to the caramel.
    5. Chill and Set:
      • Place the pan back in the refrigerator and let the bars chill for at least 2-3 hours, or until completely set.
    6. Slice and Serve:
      • Once set, remove the bars from the pan using the overhangs of the parchment paper.
      • Place the block on a cutting board and, using a sharp knife dipped in hot water, cut into squares or bars.
    7. Serve and Enjoy:
      • Arrange the Salted Caramel Peanut Bars on a serving plate. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    Pro Tips
