Nestle is the world's largest packaged food manufacturer, coffee roaster, and chocolate maker. It is the largest single company in Switzerland today, but Nestle derives only 2 percent of its revenue from its home country.

The company is quite diverse. Nestle's product lines include beverages and drinks, chocolate and candy, dairy products, and frozen foods. The company also operates more than thirty Stouffer Hotels and owns 25 percent of the French cosmetics giant L'Oreal. In the United States, where the company is called Nestle USA, it ranks third behind Mars, Inc., and Hershey USA in chocolate sales.

This candy bar was introduced in 1966 as the $100,000 Bar, then its name was changed to 100 Grand Bar in 1985.

30 unwrapped Kraft caramels, at room temperature
One 12-ounce bag milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup Rice Krispies

1. With your fingers, flatten each caramel into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.

2. Melt the chocoate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in a microwave set on half power for 2 minutes. Stir halfway through the heating time. Melt thoroughly, but do not overheat.

3. Add the Rice Krispies and stir just until blended.

4. Dip each caramel into the chocolate to coat completely and then place on waxed paper. Cool until firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours.

I made several of Todd's candy bar clones and gave them away as Christmas gifts this year. Since the 100 Grand Bar is my fav, I saved it for last. After a week of being covered in chocolate, finding my hands pasted to the counter by the Peppermint Patty mixture (a little sticky, Todd??) and serious sleep deprivation - I made my first 100 Grand Bar at 11pm on Christmas Eve. After unwrapping and shaping only 5 caramels, I was ready to quit...but then I tasted one. Holy crap - it tasted just like it!
