  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  3. Sautéed Apples
  4. In a large nonstick skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add sliced apples and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 7-10 minutes, or until apples are soft.
  5. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Stir and set aside to cool.
  6. When crust and apples are cooled completely, pour apples on bottom of pie crust. Set aside and make salted peanut caramel.
  7. Salted Peanut Caramel
  8. Heat sugar over medium heat. Stir constantly. Sugar will clump up, turn brown, and eventually melt into a amber brown liquid. Be sure to stir constantly so it doesn't burn.
  9. When ALL the sugar has melted, add the butter. Stir vigorously until all the butter has melted and it is incorporated with the sugar. (better to use a whisk)
  10. Very carefully drizzle and stir in heavy cream. Mixture will rapidly boil and splatter, so be careful. Stir and boil for 1 minute.
  11. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 cup of peanuts. Cool for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
  12. Pour on top of apple layer, smooth, and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes - 1 hour.
  13. Nougat Filling
  14. Combine all nougat ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a wooden spoon or mixer to combine until all the ingredients are mixed and come together in a stiff ball.
  15. With your hands, flatten and shape nougat in pieces to place on top of cooled caramel layer.
  16. Chocolate Topping
  17. Place chocolate and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for about 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted.
  18. Smooth on top of nougat. Garnish top with chopped snickers bars or additional peanuts. Refrigerate for 1 hour and serve. Enjoy.
