Betty Crocker Got Nothin On Me!

By Request, A Recipe
Big Ass Maker
Kit Kat Cookie Bars

Box of club crackers (75ish crackers)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan with 1 layer of crackers. Cut them to fit. Set Aside.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour half of the butter mixture evenly over crackers. Place another layer of crackers evenly over the butter mixture. Pour remaining butter mixture evenly over crackers. Top with remaining club crackers.
In another saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips. Melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over crackers. Cover and chill for at least 90 minutes. Cut into bars and store in refrigerator.

You don't have to use peanut butter. They still taste amazing without it.
Make sure you wear an apron or something you don't mind getting messy. This can get really sticky. Especially when you have little ones helping you out.
I can't take the credit for coming up with this concoction. I have no clue what it's from. I've just been making them for a long time.

Do they really taste like Kit Kat's? The club crackers just don't fit in my mind lol....can't you buy like waffer cookies or something?

Thats what I thought too. But when they're covered in buttery, chocolatly goodness- You don't even realize they're club crackers. They don't add to the flavor as much as they help hold everything together. I think anything else wouldnt act like a sponge and would probably be too sweet.
