Chocolate Caramel Crunchers

Wow! When I came across the recipe for these crunchy caramel bars I had a feeling they would be good.  I had no idea how good.  They remind me very much of a Twix bar, with a hint of butterscotch and peanut butter flavor.

When you’re making the caramel/graham cracker crumb mixture, you’ll want to start timing your 5 minutes of boiling when you see the very first bubbles.  And you really do need to stir constantly, as it’s a pretty sticky mixture.  The combinations of slightly salty, buttery crackers with the caramel filling and chocolate/peanut butter topping is absolutely incredible.  These bars are definitely a must make!

  2. Yum! Thanks for sharing:) Have a blesssed day, HUGS!

  3. These sound amazing…! Thank you for sharing the recipe. :)

  4. I can’t see when you use the second half of the butter/sugar mixture. And the picture seems to have 3 layers of crackers, topped by the chocolate, not just 2 layers. The instructions seem incomplete to me, am I missing something?

  5. Just made these last night! Easy and delicious – had to send some off to my husband’s work so I don’t eat them all!
    Heidi – just add another layer of crackers and caramel after the first, top with final layer and chocolate/butterscotch/peanut butter. Worked great!
