Mock Cuban Lunch Chocolate Bars

Do you remember the Cuban Lunch Chocolate Bar?
If you are Canadian you might remember it....
I loved them..
A large bar with thick chocolate that crunches in each bite.. full of peanuts.
It makes my mouth water just thinking about it...

I am not even sure that you can buy them anymore...
But you can make them with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanutbutter chips, 
ripple chips and peanuts..
YES! I said ripple chips...

I have been trying very hard not to make anything with peanuts
so I had though Almond Butter would taste good in them...
I couldn't find any Almond Butter, instead I found the next best thing..
Caramel Almond Spread
and is it good... If you haven't tried it you need too...  

Mock Cuban Lunch Chocolate Bars 
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups butterscotch chips
1 cup caramel almond spread
1 1/2 cups rippled chips - crushed
1 cup macadamia nuts - broken into small pieces

Place chocolate and butterscotch chips and caramel almond spread into a microwave save bowl.  Microwave until chips are melted.  Stir.  Add ripple chips and macadamia nuts and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Drop by spoonfuls into baking cups... you can use either miniature baking cups or regular size.  Place in refrigerator until chilled.  Enjoy.

Once chips and spread are melted, add rippled chips and nuts
stir until thoroughly mixed.
drop into baking cups and chill
Caramel Almond Spread 

 So easy to make and a great gift idea.  Christmas is coming you may want to think of putting this on your baking list...
