Layered Salted Caramel Peanut Fudge

This is one of my favorite freezer desserts, and I like to keep it ready to grab at a moment's notice. A decadent delight, it homes in on the irresistible flavor combo of caramel and sea salt. The unique peanutty edge makes it fulfilling for adults with a cuppa, but also brings plenty of happiness to little kids.
