RecipeReview Taste of Home Homemade Candy Bars

I have been making these bars for many years. Every time I have taken them to a get together someone asks for the recipe. I have never put in the butterscotch chips when I make it so I double the chocolate chips. This time when I made them I didn't have graham crackers or peanut butter to use. I actually did have a brand new jar of peanut butter but when I opened it the seal was broken. I'll be returning that jar to get a new one! I just used Waverly crackers in place of the graham crackers. I sprinkled ground peanuts over the chocolate in place of the peanut butter. Good both ways!

Homemade Candy Bars
8 ounces Waverly crackers, divided
1 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup milk
2 cups graham cracker crumbs 
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar 
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Place a third of the crackers (about 25) in the bottom of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. pan.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add the milk, graham cracker crumbs and sugars; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Pour half of the mixture over crackers, carefully spreading to cover. Place half of the remaining crackers (about 25) on top. Spread with remaining sugar mixture. Top with remaining crackers.

In a small saucepan over low heat, stir peanut butter and chips until melted and smooth. Spread over crackers. Chill until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into small squares. Yield: 3-4 dozen.
