I've decided to start making my own - because I love chocolate and can't have a home without it. I know I should resist.... but seriously .... we have to keep a mommy happy...*giggle. AND SHE ISN'T HAPPY WITHOUT CHOCOLATE!
I've collected lots of fun recipes and decided I need to make more then just chocolate chip cookies - I needed to start being a little more creative to quench that craving - without going to the store.... I know I'm so bad - LOL!
I found a no bake homemade Twix bar recipe. I like it - but my children couldn't get over the salt in the club crackers (I wonder if they come in low sodium). I, on the other hand, thought they were great. I'm just going to send you to the link for the step by step pictured directions here at Hoosier Homemade.
The recipe for the Twix Bars:
Club Crackers (approx. 48)
1 c. Graham Cracker crumbs
3/4 c. Brown Sugar
1/3 c. White Sugar
1/3 c. Milk
1/2 c. Margarine (butter is what I use)
Place one layer of Club Crackers in a 13×9 pan. Combine ingredients in a heavy sauce pan. Bring to boil stirring constantly for approximately 5 min. Mixture should look like caramel and begin to pull away from side of pan. Pour over crackers, carefully, immediately place another layer of crackers on top pushing them down gently. Place in frig to cool.
In a microwave bowl, combine 2/3 c. Peanut Butter and 1 c. Milk Chocolate Chips for 2 min. Stir well and frost the top of the crackers. Place back in frig till firm.
