So I understand the reason for the name of this recipe, but I feel like it could be a little offensive to some people. Please know I am not trying to negative just offering some constructive criticism. I have to admit, this recipe does sound delicious.

The use of only four ingredients is a draw for me. Not that I am a lazy cook, but I do not like spending a whole lot of extra time in the kitchen mixing up a whole bunch of ingredients if I can get the same results with only a few. I must give this a trial run - way before Christmas.

I can vouch for how wonderfully addictive these are. My wife discovered a very similar recipe a couple of years ago and has made this up at Christmas as well as pretty much every other time of the year. It's a quite delicious treat for something that's so simple to make. I recommend this highly!

This stuff is dangerously delicious. Seriously. I couldn't stop eating it!

This stuff is seriously addicting. I made some for my friend's holiday party and could not stop eating it!

Spray the foil with pam!!! I have made this with saltines with salt. Also used peanut butter chips with the chocolate chips. You mix the two and for some reason when they cool, the chocolate rises to the top....

I made this on Friday. I used the saltines, but they do come unsalted if you don't like the sweet/salt. Graham crackers could also be used. I would tweak a few of the steps if I made it again. But the pan made with 40 crackers was gone by yesterday

Is there another base I could use instead of the crackers? I don't like the salty taste mixed with the sweet topping.

You could use unsalted crackers. Otherwise, I recommend making a treat that's purely sweet. You can find some great recipes here:

I made two batches of this for Christmas, one with Saltines and the other with Club crackers. The Club tasted better, the semi sweet chocolate was not as sweet and therefore it turned out better for us.I followed the recipe as posted and froze on batch , refrigerated the second one. Both came out the same. One problem:With one of the batches the saltines separated from the toffee, chocolate muxture. Any Ideas?????

Can Townhouse butter crackers be used instead of saltine or club crackers??

What are club crackers?

Club Crackers are a specific kind of crackers made by the Keebler company. They're the ones that you find in a bright green box and have the word "Club" written on them in large bold letters. You can find them at practically every grocery store.

I have made this recipe for years, but I call the recipe Skor bars. I use 1/2 C milk chocolate chips and 1/2 C butterscotch chips. I make this with saltine crackers and light brown sugar. After the sugar mixture (1 C butter and 1 C brown sugar) has boiled for about 2 minutes, I pour the sugar mixture over the crackers and spread with a knife so that the crackers are covered. Then I bake them in a preheated 350 oven for about 4 minutes, remove when bubbling, and add the chips, wait a minute and then spread. I just put them into the fridge until chilled and then I remove the foil and break the skor bar into pieces.

I made these for our Christmas party at work today and they were amazing!Highly addictive and yummy!

Does this recipe really call for freezing for 2 hours, or just refrigerate?

Freezing makes them hard. I keep mine in Ziploc bags in the freezer and snitch a piece whenever I want. However, I have never made it with club crackers, only saltines. Will be trying this recipe tonight!!

I put mine in the fridge for 2 hours and it worked just fine.Didn't say how to break into pieces,but I used a metel spoon,lifted up one edge of it and hit it as hard as I could til it broke!It worked!

This is a really good and easy recipe. I have made it for Christmas for years. Use milk chocolate chips as they melt easier and then top them with chopped walnuts.....Delicious!

does anyone have the ritz cookie recipe? dates and nuts and corn syrup -boiled and spooned on ritz and baked? I dont know the exacts-but it is great-and stores in an airtight container or tin-no refrigeration needed. please pass the recipe on to me..really need it.

Without frosting With frosting

Aren't "club" crackers the same as Ritz crackers?

Club crackers are rectangular.. easier to spread the toffee over.

no, you do not crush the cracker. I usually make this with regular saltines & light brown sugar and it is addicting!

Am I supposed to crush the crackers first?

what are "club"crackers? how many crackerswould be in a sleeve to make this recipe

"club" crackers are a buttery saltine made by Keebler. They are rectangle shape instead of the traditional saltine. I have used regular saltines and they also come out good. I have also made it with light brown sugar instead of dark.
