Copycat Whatchamacallit Candy Bar Recipe
If you have ever had a Whatchamacallit Candy Bar then you know how amazing the combination of peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallows can be. It’s a very unique combination and my Copycat Whatchamacallit Candy Bar Recipe hits it pretty close! This is a layer process, but pretty easy and well worth the extra steps because trust me, your family will be begging you to make these again and again!
4 cups miniature marshmallows
11 tbs salted butter
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Melt 3 tbs butter in a large saucepan
Add 6 cups Peanut Butter Captain Crunch Cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir until all the cereal is coated.
Turn that mixture into your greased baking dish and use a piece of wax paper to press the cereal mixture down.
To the melted butter add your sweetened condensed milk, light corn syrup and light brown sugar and whisk until combined.
Place your caramel mixture in the microwave and cook on high for six minutes.
You will know your caramel is done when you place a dime sized amount into a cup of ice water and it forms a ball you can roll between your fingers. If the caramel is too soft microwave it for another 30 seconds. 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.
I put my semi sweet chocolate chips in a small sauce pot and place that small pot inside a larger pot that has about a half inch of water in the bottom. Medium heat will cause the water to simmer and melt the chips inside the smaller pot as the damp heat flows around it.
Once your chocolate has melted, use a spatula to spread it on top of the caramel mixture.
