Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 45 Club crackers (2-1/2x1 inch)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

"I made these bars with Graham Crackers instead of club crackers, and sprinkled chopped walnuts on top of chocolate.

Excellent bars."

"These are so delicious! I brought them to a women's function and one lady told me they were the best bars she's ever had! I would stir frequently though while making the caramel instead of "occasionally" so it doesn't stick."
