    Ingredients
    For the Caramel Layer
    • 1Cup Butter
    • 1Cup Brown SugarPacked (I prefer the dark brown sugar)
    • 4Tablespoon Light Corn Syrup
    • 1Cup Sweetened and Condensed Milk
    For the Chocolate Layer
    • 2Cups MILK Chocolate Chips {there IS a difference so make sure you get MILK chocolate}I always get the NESTLE Milk Chocolate Morsels – see picture of them in the recipe post at DreaminginDIY.com
    • 2Tablespoon Tablespoons Butterroom temperature
    Instructions
    1. Cookie Layer: Place mini marshmallows and cut up slices of 1/2 Cup of the butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for two minutes. If butter is not completely melted, microwave for an additional 15 seconds at a time until it is. Stir until you have a smooth mixture.
    2. Pour in Mini Nilla Wafers and stir until they are all completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Butter a 9×13 baking dish and then pour the mixture into your baking dish. Press it down evenly into all of the corners making it as level and even on top as possible. Put it in the fridge to cool while you mix the caramel layer.
    Caramel Layer
    1. In a heavy 2 quart pan combine 1 Cup of the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk. Bring it to a boil at just under medium heat stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes while continuing to stir preferably with a wooden spoon so as not to scorch your caramel. When five minutes are up, remove from heat and continue to stir/beat with a wooden spoon for an additional 3 minutes. Your sauce will start to thicken up. Remove refrigerated cookie mixture from fridge and pour your caramel sauce on top* and spread it evenly into the corners with a spatula. Place it back into the fridge to cool for at least 30 minutes.
    Chocolate Layer
    1. Place your milk chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. If not melted, microwave for an additional 30 seconds at a time until they are melted. *The chips will not completely lose their shape when done so keep test touching the top chips to see when they are really soft and melted before you start another 30 seconds!* Stir in 2 Tablespoons of the butter until it melts and your chocolate is a good spreading consistency. (NOTE: I’ve had a few of you let me know that your chocolate “seized” when you added the butter. I ALWAYS use Nestle brand Milk Chocolate Morsels and have NEVER had it seize up….. – but, a helpful reader said this worked for them – “When I added the butter, the chocolate seized and I had to add vegetable oil to get it unseized.” So give some vegetable oil a try if it happens to you too! *Here’s another method I found via Cook’s Illustrated to fix your chocolate if it seizes: “If your chocolate does seize, add boiling water to it, 1 teaspoon at a time, and stir vigorously after each addition until the chocolate is smooth…… – Adding more liquid can actually restore melted chocolate to its liquid state. Stir boiling water into the seized chocolate 1 teaspoon at a time to smooth it out.”) Remove your dish from the fridge and spread the chocolate sauce evenly on top making sure to spread it into the corners and as evenly as possible. Put your dish back in the fridge and cool for an additional 30 minutes to an hour. After they are nice and chilled, them cut them into squares and serve!

    *reserve a little of the caramel if you want to reheat it and drizzle it on the top when they are finished and ready to serve.
