Homemade Kit Kat Bars

I want you to listen to me, and listen very carefully.
Stop what you are doing.
Grab and pen and paper.
Make a list of these ingredients.
And RUN to the store.
Purchase them and come RIGHT back
This was SO simple, and easy, and surprisingly GOOD!
I made these on Wednesday and took them to my office to eat on Thursday.
They did not last long at all!
And I had so many compliments...
I asked my coworkers to tell me what they thought,
and I want you to as well.
Try these and let me know what you think.
(P.S. Did I mention there is NO BAKING?)
80 Club crackers (2 sleeves)
1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs ( 1 sleeve plus 3 FULL squares)
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Using a 9 x 13 pan, line it with tin foil, making sure you leave
some overhang so you can just lift the whole dessert out at the end.

Line the bottom of the pan in a single layer of the club crackers.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the graham crackers,
brown sugar, sugar and milk. Bring to a boil. Once boiling,
boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Once that is done cooking, pour half of the sugar mixture of the crackers.
Make another single layer of the club crackers over the sugar mixture.
Pour the rest of the sugar mixture over the 2nd layer of crackers
and top that layer with the last layer of crackers.
So, just to make sure we understand...
crackers, sugar, crackers, sugar and then crackers.
Got it?
In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt the
butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and peanut butter.
Stir constantly to make sure you do not burn them!
(I came close...oops!)

Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the top of the crackers,
making sure to distribute evenly.

Place in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
When ready to serve, just grab that foil and it lifts RIGHT OUT
of the pan. I placed mine on a cutting board and started off
cutting mine with a pizza cutter, but ended up using a knife..
much easier.

Technically, I don' t think it's exactally a Kit Kat bar,
because those don't have caramel in them....
so maybe it's more like a Twix?
You know what, it really doesn't matter the name...
because it's so DANG GOOD!
Let me know what you think!
Have a SWEET weekend!
