Caramel Crunch Bars

I am a sucker for anything with caramel. I was a little skeptical about this recipe when I saw that it calls for club crackers. But my obsession for caramel took over and I gave it a try. It was so good! The saltiness from the crackers balances out the sweetness of the caramel and it's a great combination.

adapted from My Kitchen Cafe

80 club crackers
1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Place a layer of crackers on the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 baking dish. Spread half of the caramel mixture over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers, then spread remaining caramel mixture over the crackers. Top with the final layer of crackers.

In a medium saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. Melt over medium-low heat, stirring continuously. Spread over crackers. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
