Servings 8


  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff (7 oz)
  • 2/3 cups chocolate spread (I use Hershey's, you can also use Nutella)
  • 12 oz chocolate candy melts
  • 7 oz soft caramels
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or cream


  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt 6 oz of the chocolate candy coating according to package instructions, and stir until smooth.
  • Spread evenly into a parchment lined 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan. Refrigerate until set (about 5-10 minutes).
  • In a separate bowl mix together the fluff and chocolate spread.
  • Microwave for about 30 seconds, stir, and pour evenly over the hardened chocolate in the loaf pan.
  • In a microwave safe bowl melt the caramels with the milk. Stir until smooth and pour over nougat layer.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm enough to cut.
  • Remove the candy from the pan and peel off the paper. Cut into 8 bars for full size candy bars or 16 for fun size bars.
  • Melt remaining candy coating in a bowl and dip the tops and sides of the candy bars until completely coated. Let the chocolate set and store in a sealed container.
