how to make the layered snickers cake-
PREPARE THE CREAM: Cream together the dulce de leche and butter, just until combined. Refrigerate until needed.
PREPARE CAKES: Separate egg whites and yolks into two bowls, set aside the egg whites. Beat together the egg yolks and sugar until creamy. Add the butter, baking powder and mix. Slowly add the flour and continue mixing until well incorporated.
Divide cake batter between two lined baking sheets and spread evenly (I just use my fingers). Set aside.

Finely chop the peanuts into small pieces, set aside.
Over high speed, beat egg whites until foamy. Slowly add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread the meringue mixture over the cake layers and top with the peanuts.
Bake the cakes 20-25 minutes, or until golden in color.
Melt chocolate, add to plastic bag and snip edge.
Cut both cakes in half. Place the first layer onto serving platter and top with cream, drizzle with chocolate. Repeat with remaining layers.
With a sharp knife, trim edges of the cake so they are straight, optional.
Cover sides and top of the cake with remaining cream. Drizzle chocolate over the top of the cake.
